Sturgeon Bay High School student, Caleb Sansom, has earned himself a paid internship at NEW Industries through the Youth Apprenticeship Program.
Sansom already has a third of his associate’s degree complete from NWTC while being only a high school senior. The Youth Apprenticeship Program – in coordination with other Door County schools – allows high school students, like Sansom, to find paid internships and pay for dual credit classes at NWTC which count towards a degree. Moreover, Caleb Sansom is pursuing a career as a manufacturing engineer.
Sansom has capitalized on this special opportunity and he now interns at NEW Industries. There, he works closely with actual engineers and toolmakers. As a result, Sansom gains on the job experience and puts him ahead of everyone else.
This is what he had to say regarding his work at NEW Industries as he’s advancing.
Sansom uniquely balances the rigors of this job with his academics. Entering the second semester of high school, Sansom works about thirty hours a week and leaves school at around 10:00 am every weekday to commute to NEW. Simply, through hard work, Caleb Samson is taking advantage of this opportunity.
