In preparing students for a career, Forsyth Tech offers much more than just classroom instruction. Internships and work-based learning courses give students real world, on-the-job experiences that allow them to demonstrate their skills and develop needed competencies, all while earning college credit. Each year the college selects a Work-Based Learning Student of the Year, and this year that student is Tresha Johnson.
Tresha, an Accounting student, completed her work experience during the Spring 2015 semester at Piedmont Hoist & Crane in Colfax. In her work experience position at Piedmont Hoist & Crane, Tresha’s site supervisor, Bruce Atkinson, praised her “intelligence, her trainability, and her work ethic.” Tresha graduated in May, earning her AAS in Accounting.
Tresha will now go on to be nominated for Work-Based Student of the Year awards at both the state level and the international competition. We’re excited to have her represent Forsyth Tech and we wish her luck!
