The City of Lebanon has added a pair of interns to begin the 2021-2022 school year. The City is partnering with the Lebanon Community School Corporation and its Career Engagement Department. Established in 2015, with the help of the City’s Redevelopment Commission, the focus of this LCSC department is to:
- Provide leadership in the development and implementation of a comprehensive education program that promotes knowledge of all types of employment opportunities
- Educate LCSC students and parents of the advantages of completing school with marketable skills
There are currently two Lebanon High School seniors who are pairing with the Fire Department and Engineering Department: Kailyn Spanhook and Riley Newman.
Kailyn Spanhook’s is interning with the Lebanon Fire Department. Kailyn has jumped in with both feet at LFD. Kailyn got familiarized with the tools and equipment the department uses to serve the citizens of Lebanon. The Lebanon Fire Department has partnered with the Lebanon High School Work-Based Learning program to provide hands-on training to young adults like Kailyn, who have expressed interest in a public safety career. Her post career interests include Emergency Medical Technician, Paramedic, and the Fire Service. Kailyn will gain hands-on experience in daily fire department operations. Follow the Lebanon Fire Department Facebook Page to see Kailyn’s experiences throughout her internship.
LHS Senior Riley Newman is interning in the City’s Engineering Department. During his time as intern, Riley will be shadowing City Engineer Kevin Krulik, as well as several other members of City Planning and Code Enforcement.
The City of Lebanon is happy to partner with Career Engagement to provide these types of job shadowing experiences for our area young people!
