Abi Halls, a 2020 graduate of Woodstock High School, is a quoting technician intern with Roytec Industries, a position she started as a senior in high school through the WorkBased Learning program. Abi completed the engineering pathway and continues to use the skills she learned through CTAE, such as reading and interpreting technical drawings, OSHA 10 guidelines, and how to be a professional. The Work-Based Learning program and internship opportunity in high school continues to benefit Abi, as she is still employed with Roytec Industries. Abi is also a current student at the University of Georgia.
“Going into the internship, I had no experience at all. A lot of skills that I learned in the engineering pathway were very useful at work. Practicing soft skills in the classroom was the most helpful skill I was able to take into the workplace because it prepared me for how to act and communicate professionally with others.”
