What elementary student doesn’t love a backpack full of new school supplies? Thanks to CHS Wausa , students in Wausa and Bloomfield got a head start on getting ready for school this fall. For the third year in a row, CHS Wausa provided backpacks full of school supplies for the fourth grade students in these two communities.
“CHS has a long history of giving back, and we’re excited to be a part of this project that helps students, particularly those in need, get their school year off to a great start,” says Jeff Friedrich, general manager, CHS Wausa.
More than 130 interns joined CHS this summer. Internships provide students the opportunity to apply what they’ve learned in the classroom and gain hands-on experience in their fields of interest. For many students, an internship experience forms the foundation for future career choices, including the type of company they want to join. CHS Wausa had four interns this summer; Kylie Abbenhaus, Bloomfield; Brianna Kumm, Osmond; Adam Kleinschmit, Wausa and Nick Penlerick, Osmond. As their internships were wrapping up for the summer, they took time to help fill these backpack for the incoming fourth grade class at Bloomfield.
