Seven Valley Students Earn Principal Financial Group Summer iJAG Internships
Seven Valley High School students were selected for paid internship opportunities through the Iowa Jobs for America’s Graduates (iJAG) program and Principal Financial Group.
“Given COVID-19, these students adapted quickly to the new circumstances of the interview process and internship agreements,” said Katie Allison, Valley’s iJAG education specialist. “Proud is an understatement. These students worked tirelessly in the classroom to perfect interview skills, professional dress, resumes, cover letters, professional presence, and much more. This opportunity is well deserved.”

- Allanae Alexander, junior
- Joshua Alles, junior
