Community Internship Program

The students in Blythewood High School's Community Internship Program will be showcasing their career internships and community service projects on Thursday, January 9 at 8:45 am in the small gym at BHS.  Students in the program have been working with mentors across the Midlands and getting a taste of just what this working life is all about.   The students have been exposed to careers in a huge variety of fields and will 'show off' the projects in which they've been a part.  Plan to come take a look at what some of our Blythewood students are learning.  There's more to school than what's in a book!
Here are just a few of the mentors that have participated this semester.

Do You Know This Man?

Written for an Album

Time may stain this spotless page.
And these simple lines erase;
But it cannot dim the mem'ry
Of thy well-beloved face.
