Javion, pictured in between two Boone Hospital employees, was one of five high school students to successfully complete their senior year in the Seamless Transition through Enhanced Partnership (STEP) program. Javion and fellow participants held internship positions in various departments at the hospital, starting and ending each school day in a classroom on site.
In a celebration ceremony held May 12 at Boone Hospital, each of the participants took the stage to describe their experiences and share what they learned, as well as about their future ambitions. Javion was particularly excited in sharing that he has a paid job lined up at Boone Hospital. “I look forward to working here,” he said. “It’s a good place to be.”
