Innovative internship program to expand

An innovative internship program that allows Affton High School students to work at St. Anthony’s Medical Center and the Siteman Cancer Center is one of only a few of its kind in the country and expands to the Mehlville, Bayless and Hancock Place school districts next year. From left, State Board of Education members Mike Jones and Vic Lenz, Education Commissioner Margie Vandeven and Affton Superintendent Steve Brotherton learn last week at the south county STLVentureWorks office how the program can serve as a model for Missouri. A future article will focus on the students’ experience.
