15 students from Charleston County School of the Arts are working in work-based learning internships aligned with their career interests. Each student works a minimum of 120 hours and turns in a weekly journal on their experiences along with other assignments to to their Teacher of Record Ms.Cherie Godwin.
Special thanks to Mr. Bill Smyth, a recently retired teacher at School of the Arts, for continuing to facilitate the internship program he helped establish at the school.
On the value of the internship program at SOA, Smyth said, “I wish all students this age had an internship. I think it would make the world of difference in their lives. School subjects would be more meaningful. Students would begin to focus on a career path. Students would get practical experience in work they’re interested in.”
