Project SEARCH interns prepare for graduation

Six interns enrolled in Tabor College’s Project SEARCH program for 2018-19 will be recognized for their achievements at a private graduation reception Friday.

Justice Baugh of Hillsboro will be employed by a restaurant when she moves to Oklahoma. Jacob Clements works full-time at Dale’s Supermarket, and is interested in the Hutchinson Community College welding program in Hillsboro.

Abi Funk said she hopes to work in the dietary department of a retirement center. Aron Gunn is interested in pursuing janitorial or grounds crew work.

Of the six, only Brock Mitchell and Ryan Ronsse are from outside Hillsboro. Mitchell, a resident at Marion County Lake, has worked in Tabor’s facilities and grounds department since March, while McPherson native Ronsse started part-time with Dillons in April.

The Project SEARCH partnership between Tabor College and the Marion County Special Education Cooperative teaches job skills to recent special education high school graduates, and help them secure employment after the program.
