Enriching experiences

Dear Block Island Community,
It takes a village to raise a child and on Block Island we are fortunate to be able to provide our students with internships and hands-on experience. Individuals have allowed students to explore career goals, develop professional working relationships, and get an in-depth perspective on careers. These opportunities are invaluable experiences each senior student will be able to use to guide them through adulthood. The following individuals have allowed this to happen: Sven and Laura Risom, Karen Logan, Diandra Verbeyst, Morgan Walsh, Renee Meyer, Mike Kiley, and Lars Trodson. Without these extraordinary mentors, these experiences wouldn’t be possible.
The priceless opportunities from businesses such as North Light Fibers, The Block Island Times, and Green Island
Lawn Service will guide the seniors on how to become entrepreneurs. Block Island Chamber of Commerce, The Island Free Library, and The Nature Conservancy have demonstrated how nonprofits are an integral part of our community. From the class of 2022 and myself, thank you so much for your time, effort, and dedication to the future of Block Island.
