MSD’s Student Intern Academy Celebrating 9th Year of Success
Sewer, Water, CPS and Hamilton County Schools to Celebrate Summer Youth Employment
Cincinnati, OH – The City of Cincinnati’s sewer, water and stormwater departments are partnering with the Cincinnati Public and Hamilton County partner schools, and parochial schools to celebrate the 9th year of successful summer youth employment for local students.
MSD’s Summer Intern Academy started in the summer of 2007 with sixteen select students from the Cincinnati Public Schools to promote successful career opportunities in City Government and maximize the students’ opportunities for workforce development. It is an 8-week educational, summer employment program for local youth. This year over 60 students will graduate from the program which has expanded to include partnerships with Greater Cincinnati Water Works (GCWW), Stormwater Management Utility (SMU), Hamilton County partner schools and parochial schools, various City of Cincinnati Departments and local businesses.
“As our utilities’ workforce continue to age, it is critical that we expose and educate Greater Cincinnati youth to public sector careers in environmental management to help develop our future workforce,” said Tony Parrott, MSD’s Executive Director.
A celebration of this year’s graduating class will be held at the Woodward Career Technical High School located at 7005 Reading Road, on Thursday, July 30 at 10:00 a.m.
