New Hampstead High School rising Senior Naomi Gores has
been recognized with the 2019 Eddie Johnson MLET Award from the Maritime
Logistics Education Taskforce. Naomi has been interning with international freight
forwarding and customs brokerage firm John S. James since January as part of
the MLET Internship Program.
The Maritime Logistics Education Taskforce was formed by
the Savannah-Chatham Public School System and Chatham County’s business
community as part of efforts to work together to help build a skilled workforce
that will take on the hundreds of jobs available in the Maritime and Logistics
industries. The program gives career-minded students the opportunity to
“earn while they learn” what it takes to be successful in and out of the
classroom, and how to take steps toward an exciting career and a promising
future right here at home.
Naomi Gores is well on her way to that goal with the award
which will give her $1,000 and an extension of her original 10-week paid
internship which will now last through her 2020 graduation. Congratulations to this hard-working SCCPSS student!
