JSHS Continues Partnership with Morgan Corp

The Jr./Sr. High School Continues Partnership with Morgan Corporation
Posted on 10/28/2021
Morgan CorpStudents in their senior year at Wyomissing Area and Wilson High School have the opportunity to participate in a welding internship program at Morgan Corporation in Morgantown, PA. Morgan Corporation is a national company that supplies truck bodies all across the United States.

This internship allows students to get a head start on a possible career path post-graduation and can help them explore what they may want to do after high school. Wyomissing Area currently has two students participating in this program and is excited to see more students get involved in the future.

Students in the program begin their day and coursework with traditional classes at the Jr./Sr. High School and are dismissed to Morgan Corporation for their afternoon class time before returning to school for end-of-day dismissal. The first few weeks spent at the facility include training sessions and classroom learning, as there is a lot of new information for students to learn.

Additionally, students participate in a series of hands-on training activities, qualifying tests, and various screenings before they are allowed to begin on the work floor. Once they pass the initial training, they can begin completing welding tasks and are mentored by professionals at Morgan Corporation. Participating students earn high school credit through this program but also gain professional skills and experience. Even better, students that perform well in the program may have the opportunity to continue employment with Morgan Corporation after graduation!

Wyomissing Area is proud to offer this unique and valuable opportunity to our Spartans allowing them to develop valuable skills and prepare to enter the workforce.
