Smelter Service Corporation was proud to host 9 Mount Pleasant High School interns this summer as well as 1 Engineering College student.
We were thrilled to partner with the South Central Tennessee Workforce Alliance to offer these opportunities, thanks to a Tennessee LEAP Work-Based Learning Grant. The grant was offered to local industry partners to provide meaningful and sustainable work experiences to students in Maury County who were enrolled in Advanced Manufacturing classes. As part of the seventh key of the “seven keys to college and career readiness,” work-based opportunities are giving students valuable exposure to work environments and helping them take ownership in their futures. By giving students exposure to the workplace early, students feel more confident upon graduation in their abilities to succeed, whether that be in a four-year college, community college, vocational school or in the workforce. Sophomore Dakota Bolton stated, “I realized that I like working with other people and really enjoy the team effort put in to a job.” Smelter Service would like to thank all of the interns for being a part of our Smelter Family this summer! To sum it up…..we feel the same as Dakota does, “GRATEFUL.”
