The WV Ready Internship has gone virtual! In the summer of 2020, 15 rising juniors and seniors participated in a 4-week virtual opportunity where they cultivated knowledge, skills, and characteristics of a WV Ready Graduate that will lead them to success beyond high school graduation.
Each intern was paired with a business mentor from Dow Inc., West Virginia American Water, or Toyota Motor Manufacturing of West Virginia and completed a capstone project where they re-engineered an existing product, process or system in order to address a challenge their host business was experiencing.
