Please join us in congratulating two GHS students, J.T. Massey and Meghan Edwards, who were offered spots in the Cochrane Summer Economics Institute this summer at The Collegiate School. This an amazing opportunity for these two students, who were selected as two of only 35 rising seniors from the Greater Richmond area to participate in the five week work/study internship program.
During the first week of the program, students will experience classroom instruction in economic principles and basic business concepts, team-building and networking activities, and interaction with successful local entrepreneurs. Following the classroom portion of the Institute, a four week internship with a local business or non-profit begins. Interns become familiar with various departments and functions of the host organization, and are given projects for which they are responsible.
Since 1977, the Cochrane Summer Economics Institute has provided opportunities for over 1,000 students from 13 area high schools. Over 200 local businesses have participated in the Institute.
For more information about this outstanding opportunity, please contact GHS Counselor, Beth Fowler.
