Students from Horizon High School, a district high school that has educated school-age parents since 1975, were given the opportunity to gain some real-world work experience in the Career-to-Work Internship Program.
Pictured are Mayor Jennifer Hosterman, Brenda Gonzalez, city employee Christina Morales, Kristina Silva, Channing Stone, Becky Porter, Horizon Program Director Karen McMahon and City Manager Nelson Fialho.
The decade-long program provides the students with a five-week internship with various city departments. In addition to gaining on-the-job skills, they participated in interview and speaking workshops from the city's Human Resources department.
Students were celebrated in a graduation ceremony March 31 at the city's Operations Services Center.
