Thirteen Ware County High students completed internships through a summer STEM internship program. In its fifth year, the program is a partnership between Ware County High School’s Work-Based Learning program and the Waycross-Ware County Chamber of Commerce. The program's goal is to provide students with relevant work experience in high-demand jobs related to Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.
Student interns submitted applications and resumes to potential employers and participated in a panel-style interview designed to match student interests and abilities with local employers. A luncheon for program completers was hosted at WCHS to recognize the efforts of the interns and their respective employers. The meal, featuring delicious and visually stunning Thai cuisine, was prepared and served by students in Chef Jennifer Johnson's Culinary Arts pathway.
Student interns include Andrew C., Manav P., Mason B., Charlie B., Carrie C., Amber B., Jabrell W., Abigail G., Anne L., Maria M., Kennia K., Arianna P., and Jenna D. Business partners include Waycross-Ware County Chamber of Commerce, Waycross-Ware County Development Authority, South Georgia State College, Ware County School System, Circle K, Okefenokee Regional Library, Georgia Lions Camp, and Chick-fil-a.
Employers wishing to participate in the 2020 program are invited to contact Mrs. Kim Callahan at 912-287-2351 or email her at email@example.com for more information.
