Each year at MMI, we are lucky enough to employ a couple of interns from Lamar High School’s Magnet Program. At Lamar, there is a special business program that allows students to intern at local companies throughout their senior year. This year, seniors Genesis Lara and Alexus Davis have been working with us each afternoon after attending their morning classes at Lamar. They have been such a great help to everyone here and have really become part of the MMI family.
Last week, Betty and I got to attend the year-end banquet for the Lamar Magnet Program as the girl’s representatives. The evening consisted of a delicious meal, a great speaker and a few kind words from each student about their experience working at their host company. Both Genesis and Alexus presented MMI with a certificate of appreciation for allowing them the opportunity to have a real-world experience in the marketing industry.
We are so thankful for the talented interns we get each year from this program, and will miss these girls tremendously next year! MMI wishes them both the best of luck in college this fall!
