La Feria ISD posted on Wednesday, May 31, “The district would like to thank the many businesses that have allowed our students this opportunity! We look forward to the next six days!”

Throughout the internship program, La Feria ISD students had the chance to work with a diverse range of organizations, gaining valuable insights and practical skills. From the La Feria ISD Business Office to local businesses such as Exxxtreme Cycles, Moss Realty, and SMOKE BBQ, students were able to experience real-world scenarios and learn from industry professionals.

Students participating in the program were assigned to businesses across different sectors. At Moore’s Land Surveying, LLC and Avila’s Auto Services, students like Jolee Garza, Arabella Navarro, Liana Navarro, and Sebastian Flores had hands-on opportunities to learn about land surveying, both in the field and in an office setting.

Other businesses, including the La Feria Police Department, Noble Construction, and Slate Media, extended their support and offered students valuable experiences in their respective fields. These partnerships enabled students to immerse themselves in practical work environments, gaining insights into various professions and expanding their knowledge and skills.
