Schoolhouse Supplies Snapshot Series; Summer Interns!

June 26, 2014

Meet our Summer Interns!

Besides soaking up the rarely-seen sun, we can’t imagine a better way to spend my summer than working at Schoolhouse Supplies. As summer interns, we are stoked to be a part of the dynamic team at Schoolhouse Supplies.Two of our fabulous interns, Cheyanne and Chantale come from the SummerWorks program which funds work readiness training for their youth participants.

Our Free Store Intern Cheyanne is a Portland native and just finished off her education at Mt. Hood Community College. Cheyanne comes to us with experience from Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore, such a huge asset to our operations here at the Free Store! Although Cheyanne is exploring her options, her love for animals has her interested in becoming a veterinarian.
