A combination scholarship and iinternship program has been launched by American Exchange Bank for area seniors.
Jessica Walker, AEB spokesperson, visited with HHS seniors Thursday to describe how they can be eligible for a $1,000 per semester scholarship and paid internship as long as they have a business major. The student who receives the scholarship will have to be a business major, keep a 3.0 GPA and be enrolled in at least 12 hours of school per semester to receive the $1,000.
"The program is open to only one senior in Henryetta, Dewar, Schulter, Dustin/Graham and Wilson," Walker explained. "The students are competing against all those other seniors for it."
She said the concept of a paid internship is unusual in itself. "Most of the time, interns are unpaid and use that time with the bank to gain experience only. We want to make this something special for the senior who receives the scholarship."
