Getting a taste: Students finish internships

MADISON – A student can decide to study engineering in college, but what will the daily work be like when he or she secures a job? Several teenagers recently pursued a chance to find out about the expectations and environment for a real-world ‘office job.’

Local manufacturers, aerospace agencies, hi-tech companies and even Madison City Schools place 20 students from the Spring 2019 Senior Internship Program at Bob Jones High School.

The engineering students completed 12 weeks with local employers. Mentors at host companies helped students, who engaged in meaningful work, tours, shadowing and meetings.

After completing their work assignments, these students delivered their summary presentations to explain their daily tasks and efforts. Students spoke from the stage in Bob Jones audio-visual auditorium on May 9-10.

“We could not be more proud to share with you all they have accomplished,” Jessye G. Gaines said about her students’ presentations. Gaines is Director of Bob Jones Engineering Academy, along with sponsoring Patriot Racing and Society of Women Engineers.

Gaines matched students with a workplace that suited their inclination and interests:

* Kyle Cash — Nola I VanPeursem Architects, PC

* Bryanna Brazelle and Corbin Holland — Craft Designs Inc.

* Connor Grant — KTECH

* Calli Day — NASA, Marshall Space Flight Center

* Jake Swartz and Malaika Albright — Lojix Software LLC

* Arnav Mathur — Simulation Technologies Inc.

* Evan Osborn — Madison City Schools Instructional Technology

* Blake Young — Brown Precision Inc.

* Jack Harbin, Eliza Wilson and Brian Fritz — Booz Allen Hamilton Inc.

* Lailah Douthitt — STI Electronics Inc.

* Jessie Sloan — Jacobs Space Exploration Group

* James Rogers — NASA, Marshall Space Flight Center

* Jalen Morrison and Michael Marenka — Maximum Technology Corporation

* Jacob Newman — ADTRAN Inc.

* Jasmyn Gellineau — Discovery Life Sciences, HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology

By accepting an internship, a student “increases relevancy, the application of core classes and hones soft skills at an early age,” Gaines said.
