Munising High School students get a look at internships

MUNISING — Munising Memorial hospital is one of many places that students in Alger County can go to develop their skills in internships. Members of the Career and Technical Education Committee swung by Munising High School to talk with students about internships.

It was a chance to get ahead on picking a career path, as internships give students a real chance to see what they want to get into.

“Having that hands–on experience with the internship has only made me want to do it more,” said Keira Stampfly, an intern at Munising Memorial Hospital. “That kind of experience you don’t necessarily get in a high school setting, and I think that it’s super important that you get to see what it’s like.”

One of the main aspects in an internship is communication, talking with all other moving parts.

“That communication is a big part of what I’ve learned and I take value in that,” said Stampfly.

Students in Alger County can have a chance to intern every day as a senior in high school.
