HILLSBORO, Kan. – The Project SEARCH program at Tabor College held its first graduation ceremony for the 2017-18 interns on May 10.
The graduation ceremony marked an achievement of hard work and success for the three interns on the Tabor Campus.
These interns were Ryan Hutton, North Newton; Thomas Gill, Hillsboro; and Ally Larson, Marion.
Through this program, each intern found clarity in what specific vocation they will pursue and has gained employment. Through three rotations, the interns were mentored and pursue different career paths while developing new skills.
“I am excited for graduation because it is an opportunity to celebrate all the hard work and dedication that these three interns put into this year,” said Rob Haude, Tabor College Project SEARCH coordinator. “I am pleased to say that we have 100% employment. Each one of our interns have secured employment of at least 16 hours.”
Project SEARCH is a partnership between Tabor College and Marion County Special Education Cooperative. The two organizations participate on the advisory committee that meets on campus monthly and includes area experts in special education and job placement.
