Las Cruces Utilities Internship Program signs new student

The newest signee to the Las Cruces Utilities Internship Program, Jeremiah Avery, is moving to Las Cruces to continue to expand his college experience and to explore and cultivate his new career opportunities. On Friday, Aug, 12, Avery signed on for his full scholarship to Doña Ana Community College in the Water Technology Program, and to simultaneously gain work experience with LCU.

“I’m excited to get both the college experience and long-term career opportunities,” said Avery, a Socorro High School graduate who had already taken online classes from Socorro, New Mexico. He explained that he has not yet determined a preference between water or waste water yet, but he is ready to work in both and learn more about the science.

Avery was recognized at a signing ceremony Friday afternoon, Aug. 12, at the LCU Administration Building. The competitive internships can be valued at up to $42,500 when considering housing, food, books, other fees associated with the program and certifications. In addition, Avery will work up to 20 hours of paid work a week, working on the same assignments as regular crews — pending certifications that he will receive through working and testing.
