A South Hagerstown High School student wants to get an early start on her engineering career and she will, thanks to the Washington County Division of Environmental Management.

Student Colleen White will become the Division of Environmental Management’s first apprentice.

During her apprenticeship, Colleen will experience what it’s like to be a waste water operator apprentice. She was presented a certificate from the Washington County Board of County Commissioners and representatives from Youth Apprenticeship Maryland and Washington County Public Schools also attended the presentation.
