Holliston High School Intern Making a Difference

by Mark Ahronian

Justin Mcmanus, a Holliston High senior, is interning with Ahronian Landscaping this fall. Today he brought along his brother Ryan who's a sophomore, and Stephen Brown, a junior. Together we pulled weeds, cleaned up planting beds ,planted Mums and Perennial flowers that were donated by Holliston In Bloom, and put down some weed scream pellets, and mulch that was donated by Ahronian Landscaping for the two beds. The Intern program is designed to teach hands-on-learning, technical skills and to learn how to work as a team. Sue Stone, who runs the program, helps to fit the students iwith a local company suited to their interest of study. I have found it to be a rewarding expereince for my company.

Thank you Mark, Justin, Ryan and Steven for making the entrance to the high school look so great! It is a pleasure to drive in to work and be greeted with neat, tidy and colorful flower beds. We are so appreciative of the work and learning experiences that Ahronian Landscape and Design provides to so many of our students! Thank you Mark!
