“Before I was even in the JAG program, they actually got me a summer job in an early college success program, so I participated in that, and I also worked a summer job at the YMCA, and then senior year, they ended up offering me an internship at BAE Systems, and I ended up getting hired there, and I’ve worked permanently there ever since,” said Nalezinski, 22. He is assembling electronic circuitry for the military through BAE, which is paying for his degree program at Daniel Webster College.
Tickets were $100 a person or $150 for a couple, and all proceeds went to the program. Among the auction items were spa packages, fine wines, Boston Red Sox tickets and a signed David Ortiz jersey.
Stephen said getting funding for the problem is problematic, but some businesses have stepped forward.
“What we try to do for students is prepare them, not just for their education and pursuing post-secondary education, which we hope they do, but more so, we’re preparing them for the workforce beyond that,” she said.
