If you’ve done a double take of some of the baby-faced staff working in area businesses around town, you’re not alone. The average age of staff in local businesses has indeed dropped since the school year began. 

Here’s why: this school year, 22 Iola High School seniors are enrolled in the school’s CTE (Career Technical Education) program, a learning initiative designed to place students outside of the classroom setting and serve as apprentices to employers.

Internships give students real-world experiences to ensure real-life success, and they offer a critical chance to blossom outside of the classroom.
