Arlington High School students majoring in business, health science, or engineering can participate in a Career Prep Internship that provides hands-on experiences in their fields of interest. The District is partnering with the Arlington Chamber of Commerce and local businesses to provide these internships. What benefits do the students and businesses gain from these programs? How can businesses create learning opportunities for students and measure their progress? Internship Coordinator Diane Brewer answers these and other questions in this brief presentation.

She graduated from Texas Wesleyan University with a Bachelor of Business Administration degree and received a master's degree in education from the University of North Texas.

Also, the two recipients of $1,000 Arlington Technology Assn. scholarships, which are awarded to freshman from the Arlington ISD who are pursuing degrees in engineering and science at UT Arlington, will be introduced.
