For the second successful summer in a row, Cranston Engineering Group’s Augusta office welcomes Jacob Rice from the Students 2 Work program. This program gives Augusta metro high school students the opportunity to participate in internships and gain hands-on workplace experience. It is a Workplace Learning Initiative, which supports the Richmond County School System’s vision: to create a world-class, globally competitive school system where all students will graduate and are college/career ready. This initiative was developed by the Augusta Metro Chamber of Commerce to serve as an advocate system for public education to give extra preparation to high school students for the processes, policies, expectations, and structure of the area industries.
Rice is a Cranston intern team for the Administrative Department and will also be lending a hand to the Municipal and Survey Departments to get a view of field work.
Rice is a rising Junior at Richmond County Technical Career Magnet School. He is interested in Cyber Security and STEM programs and will be working on tasks or shadowing various employees to learn roles and procedures throughout the Cranston firm this summer. He is also looking forward to career and college advice offered by senior staff and other interns during their stay. Rice will be working directly with seasoned administrative staff on several record-keeping, data entry, digital filing, and custom relations management software tasks. He will also been shadowing Cranston’s Senior Construction Inspector out in the field learning about applied engineering and how it is constructed after plans have been approved.
