The program gives students a look at how careers are after they graduate.
Michelle Lindsay, Senior, said, “I wish I could’ve gotten into this program last year. but covid-19 happened and it canceled that opportunity. But this experience was probably life changing for me it’s going to help me be very successful in my future.”
