Lawrenceville Summer of Impact Signing Day was recently held at Discovery High School with 20 students signing contracts for the eight-week summer internship program.

“Through the Summer of Impact program, 20 students from Central Gwinnett and Discovery High Schools are immersed into their field of interest with a local business or non-profit,” said Mayor David Still. “Students go through the interview process and enhance their skill sets through real work experience. Through this program, we are building a legacy of leaders in Lawrenceville.”

A total of 60 students applied from both schools. After completing a multi-step interview process, 10 from each high school were selected and offered positions with Lawrenceville Community Relations and Public Works Departments, Impact 46/Lawrenceville Response Center, Gwinnett Stripers, H3 Media, Peachtree Packaging, Family Promise, Artist Spotlight, Aurora Theatre, Lawrenceville Neighborhood Alliance, Lawrenceville Housing Authority/Gwinnett Housing Corporation, PureFUN Inc., and Laundry Lyfe.
