About the MVHS Tech Knight Internship A student-led technology help desk will be open during lunch periods. Tech Knights will be provided a space to sit during lunch and provide support to students. This may include basic troubleshooting (like restarting a device, checking wi-fi issues, or helping students put in tech support tickets if no resolution can be reached.) This internship is open to grade 10-12 scholars. THE IMPORTANCE OF AN INTERNSHIP The importance of an internship cannot be over emphasized. For a high school student, an internship can make you stand out in the college admissions process and enable you to make more informed decisions about your future.

Mount Vernon students received advice, encouragement and support Monday, November 22, 2021, from some 20 community members, including the current and former superintendents, a judge, the mayor, their peers and parents who lost children to violence. In a webinar that lasted more than five hours for National Stop the Violence Day, the community leaders encouraged them to focus on schoolwork, not make poor choices in anger, and turn to adults for help when needed. Superintendent Dr. Kenneth R. Hamilton called on them to carry the message of the day forward.
Students at Pennington School may have to wait a few years before they start the careers they dream about. But last week, they got to dress the parts.
