I’ve loved getting to intern at Betenbough Homes this summer. During my internship, I have had the opportunity to be engaged in multiple work environments. It has ranged from a chicken farm, an office setting, and a construction site. Needless to say, it’s been nothing short of exciting. I feel as though COBA has helped prepare me to be versatile and work in any environment in the workplace!

Jared graduated in 2019 and now works at Bentenbough Homes.
