Announcing the Wildcat Community Connectors (WCC) Internship program placements for the Spring 2017 semester: Konnor Alban has a business administration internship at Mid-Ohio Energy; Cidra Billiel has a marketing and event planning internship at the Hardin County Chamber and Business Alliance; returning WCC Intern Madison Blevins continues her dental internship at Kenton Dental Care; Olivia Brown has an accounting internship at Quest Federal Credit Union; Blake Espinoza has a student coaching and education internship with 6th graders at Kenton Elementary School; returning WCC intern Kelli Haudenschield continues her equestrian internship at Brant Performance Horses; Rydin Ramsdell is placed at two locations for his internship in graphic design — at the Hardin County Chamber to learn graphic design and at Golden Graphics to learn graphic production. And finally we have 3 students — Tristan Burris, Jesse Reed and Desyre Vanksy — who have healthcare internships at OhioHealth Hardin Memorial Hospital.
This is just a small sampling of local businesses and nonprofits who will host Kenton High School students as WCC interns for a semester. The WCC program is a semester-long, career skills (graded elective) course for KHS Juniors and Seniors. In the program, students meet local business leaders who influence hiring in their companies; learn about educational/training requirements for careers of their interest, and develop job skills that will help them qualify for successful employment opportunities. If you are interested in an WCC internship placement for next fall or spring, please talk to Internship Coordinator Mrs. Cross about the course in Room 312.
