Cabarrus County Board of Education Student Interns Priya Punekar and Yash Thakkar completed a successful community service project that provided items to help students and families experiencing housing instability.
With assistance and support from school social workers at Cox Mill, Hickory Ridge, Jay M. Robinson, West Cabarrus High and Mount Pleasant Elementary Schools, the students – along with volunteers – collected and assembled donations from local churches, students, staff, and community members to create approximately 300 care packages of basic hygiene necessities.
Priya and Yash served as student interns for the BOE during the first semester of the 2021-2022 academic year. They attended BOE meetings and work sessions, observed district meetings and toured CCS facilities. Learn more information about the BOE Student Intern Program or Apply for BOE Student Intern Program.
