Congrats to the Project SEARCH Intern class of 2015. Graduation was held at the Embassy Suites in May 2015. We want to thank the Embassy Suites for hosting us last year and all they have done for our Project SEARCH program, especially the general manager Scott Balmaseda.
Four interns are currently employed from last year’s class: Richard is working at Publix in the Deli Department. Michael is working at the Embassy Suites as a Houseman. Rita is working at AIG. And Ian is working at Goodwill Industries.
We are so proud of all our interns for the hard work they put in last school year, and on their accomplishments of joining the workforce. Thank you to their families for their support throughout the year and during their employment. Special thanks to our community partner Progress, Inc. for providing a job coach and for job development services.
We would also like to thank Debbie McAdams and Kate Deitzer for their vision of bringing Project SEARCH to Metro schools.
