Willow Strother is a current Sophomore at Inter-Lakes High School who spends her free time running and Nordic skiing. She enjoys reading, and is excited for this writing opportunity. Willow has also had two poems published in a national poetry collection book.
Alyssa Floyd is a 15-year-old Sandwich resident who enjoys playing tennis, reading Harry Potter, and taking photos. She attends Inter-Lakes High School, where she is a motivated student. Alyssa is excited to develop her writing skills by blogging about her hometown.
Allison Duffield, the Executive Director of the Career Partnership Program, acts as a liaison between the local community and the Inter-Lakes High School to arrange job shadows and internship opportunities for the students. She organizes community service for the students and guest speakers to come into the school to share their experience and career paths in order to bring the "real world" into the classroom. She also hosts employment workshops and a job fair for students and the local business community in the spring. The program benefits the students and the community by strengthening networks and creating bonding opportunities for both parties.
We look forward to reading Willow and Alyssa's reports on all things Sandwich in the weeks to come.
