From Maidu culture to sheriff’s department ride-alongs, “below-the-waist health” to cooking workshops for the Independent Living Program, the audience gathered at Feather River College’s Internship Showcase on Dec. 6 learned some unusual facts from college interns.
Internship Program Director Rajinder Gill introduced the 14 student presenters during the 90-minute showcase. Enactus Advisor Amy Schulz was also on hand to describe some of the amazing projects taking place under the umbrella of Enactus and the Career Technical Education and Economic Workforce Development programs.

The official actually said that between 6 and 7 million Americans have lost their health insurance as a result of the Affordable Care Act.)
