Congratulations to senior Andrew Kee and juniors Mark Richardson and Vikas Venkateshwara for interning at the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC). The students worked over the summer to develop a Nuclear Reactor Risk Communication product. They are the only students in the county to participate, and the NRC may use lessons from this pilot program to expand on high school internships.

“It was a fun experience that was interesting,” Venkateshwara said. “I would definitely recommend this program to others.”
