Company/Organization: Academies @ Englewood
Topic of Internship
Graphic designer and general intern for Ms. Aronso
The Academies@Englewood is a public high school that started in 2002 and is located on the campus of Dwight Morrow High School. The students must begin the application process when they are in eighth grade as to gain entrance upon reaching their freshman year. It is a rigorous task, similar to a College application process, but it pays dividends similar to the College experience. The students must submit written essays, obtain recommendations, take a test, and complete an interview before they receive an answer. Once accepted, the students begin the long and challenging curriculum of all honors courses, ranging from high school to college level difficulties. Students have more opportunities at the Academies than most students in regular high schools are able to acquire. The Academies@Englewood is a great school that can help students excel academically and help prepare them for the future.
Summary of Internship
As an intern with Ms. Aronson, I do a lot of work designing various things for the many events that she plans for the Dr. John Grieco Scholarship fund. A few of the things that I have done include designing flyers and advertisements for events and creating t-shirts for Englewood Idol. Ms. Aronson also organizes large trips like the one to Philadelphia so I will take on work organizing excel spreadsheets of permissions slips and taking care of providing the chaperones with materials for the trip. The rest of the time is helping to prepare other things for events or just running errands for her. There is a lot of work put into preparing for upcoming events like Englewood’s Got Talent, so there is no room for idle time (only idol time).
