Two additional Mt. Vernon Township High School students will now participate in a special internship program at National Railway, thanks to an ongoing partnership between the company, MVTHS and the City of Mt. Vernon.
The cooperative placement program, run by the Mt. Vernon Area Vocational Center, was launched last summer. MVTHS students James Campise and Jacob Williamson were the first to take part.
With the program, the two students worked full-time at National Railway during the summer, then switched to part-time when school began. The experience gave them a taste of what it’s really like to work in an engineering . . .

With the opportunity to see what the words meant, the lessons were much easier to understand. After studying and doing the back work, the class was able to experience what they were learning and do some experiments of their own.
After selecting an instrument, each group was given the rough outline of an experiment and was released to do their research. The instruments created sound waves which consist of a series of air . . .
