Incoming SCVTHS senior Brian Plesko of Warren, who is studying electrical construction, spent his summer vacation working at the Bridgewater facility to help the Buildings and Grounds Department prepare for the 2013-14 year.
As part of the school district's Cooperative Education Experiences, an opportunity offered to seniors, Plesko worked full-time helping with repairs, doing electrical work, moving furniture, painting and general maintenance, the article said. He was paid for his work and school credit. With the start of the new year, Plesko will return to his books, but will also continue his maintenance work during and after the academic day. His experience, after graduation, may lead to a full-time, permanent job.
Students interested in exploring the Cooperative Education Experiences program for themselves should contact the school's program coordinator, Benjamin Pokrywa, at 908-526-8900 ext. 7288.
