Newsmakers | Aynor student lands internship with Santee Cooper

Twelve talented South Carolina college students put away their textbooks this summer for some hands-on learning as Santee Cooper. These interns are building knowledge on renewable energy, how it is used to make electricity and the importance of balancing it with real-time electrical demand. Interns also spend six weeks of their internship working in three two-week rotations through environmental areas of the company. This year, students from all over the state were chosen as interns, with seven representing their respective congressional districts and five representing the state at large. The program is very competitive and after their internship, the interns will leave Santee Cooper with lessons they can take back to the classroom and their careers.
