GHS STUDENT LEARNING REAL WORLD EXPERIENCE THROUGH CAREER PREP INTERNSHIP
May 17, 2023
Godley High School student Drew Coleman is learning real-world work experience through a career preparation internship with Rowlett’s Hardware Store.
"One of the main reasons why I like working at Rowlett’s is because I got to learn a bunch of new skills that I will use later in life,” Coleman commented. “I like how it is a family-owned business so they are willing to work around your schedule."
A GHS senior, Coleman will continue playing football with the McMurry War Hawks this fall.
Business internships are available through the GHS career preparation program, which provides opportunities for students to participate in a learning experience that combines classroom instruction with paid business and industry employment experiences and supports strong partnerships among school, business and community stakeholders. The practicum is designed to give students supervised practical application of previously studied knowledge and skills. Practicum experiences occur in a paid or unpaid arrangement and in a variety of instructional settings.
GHS teacher Jane Cook oversees graphic design, commercial photography and career prep classes.
