  • Inspections delayed: Cal Fire was scheduled to begin property inspections this week, but decided to wait until the public could better understand what the inspectors are doing.

Internship showcase a success

  Sixteen interns from Feather River College’s business class gave presentations in the Gallery on May 17 from noon to 1:30 p.m.

  Career Technical Education Transitions Director Rajinder Gill led the showcase along with CTE/Economic Workforce Development Director Amy Schulz.

  Internships ranged from website and graphic design to grant writing for mosquito nets to culinary arts, medical and environmental projects and beyond.

  About 35 students enrolled in the internship class this semester and many told the audience how incredible the experience was. Students said they were amazed at opportunities that opened up for them in the business world as well as in their personal lives.

  At least four students obtained full-time jobs as a result of their internships and several others gained contract jobs.

  Two students gave presentations on their trip to Uganda with Enactus and the water projects they worked on in the village of Mabare.

  Kelsey Summers worked with Quincy High School teacher and Bread for the Journey board member Ron Logan on a project to promote environmental awareness and raise funds to purchase supplies for Mabare villagers.

  Summers said she has begun working as a developmental director for nonprofit organization H20.

  H20 strives to bring clean water to underdeveloped countries and to raise awareness of sanitary health practices that can save millions of lives each year.

  Summers worked with QHS students to create change jars and piggy banks and helped students become aware of how important good hygiene and clean water really are.
