Bardstown High School senior Addie Woods has been an asset to the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth. Addie has spent much of the school year interning with the Office of Mission Advancement.
“Everyone has been so welcoming,” Addie said of her internship. “I have loved meeting new people at Nazareth and forming relationships with those at OMA.”
With OMA, Addie spent a portion of her school day learning and implementing marketing, video production, graphic design, photography and web development skills. She also learned more about how non-profit organizations operate.
Addie’s internship was part of the Bardstown High School Path2Pro program, allowing students to explore career interests through work-based learning opportunities.
“This experience has helped me for the future by giving me a glimpse of what it is like to market for a non-profit and allowing me to gain some experience in doing so,” Addie said. “Over the course of the year, I have gained more confidence in my work which is something I wouldn’t have been able to accomplish without this experience!”
Addie will graduate from high school on May 28. In the fall, she will attend the University of Louisville to pursue a degree in marketing.
