It is a great day to walk into one of our business partners for a ribbon cutting for their new office and see STEM graduate Geoff Cobb ’15 greet us at the door. Geoff, along with quite a few alumni are participating in summer internships throughout the county. Christian Abbonizio ’14 was a marketing intern at West Pharmaceuticals; Cayla Castells ’14 interned for GE two summers in a row; Sadat Shaik ’15 worked for the software technology advancement group at Bentley Systems; Shray Patel ’15 interned at Evolve IP and Krishna Venigalla ’17 interned at Comcast this summer before her Senior year. This is just a sampling of students who networked their way into these opportunities.
Over 750 students have participated in the STEM Academy Career Exploration and soft skills program since the summer of 2013. They are leveraging their experiences and networking skills to continue their career development throughout college.
