On Friday, U.S. Senator Shelley Moore Capito, West Virginia American Water President Robert Burton, Toyota President Srini Matam, and Dow Site Director Tim O’Neal will take part in capstone presentations of high school interns from The Education Alliance’s West Virginia Ready Summer Internship program.

The WV Ready Summer Internship Program started last year as a four-week, paid internship program created by The Education Alliance that places rising high school juniors and seniors with West Virginia businesses. In its second year, due to COVID-19, the program transitioned to a Virtual Internship experience that placed 15 interns from Boone, Cabell, Kanawha, Putnam, Taylor, and Wood Counties at Dow Inc., Toyota Motor Manufacturing WV, Inc. and WV American Water Company. During the final day of the four-week internship, each intern will give a capstone presentation to their business’ leadership team, which outlines their experience and highlights their personal growth and future career goals.
