The WBL learning student of the month award is an award given to hardworking students. Students who are acknowledged at their workplace. Austin Enfinger is the first student to receive the award for this semester. Austin has been in the WBL class for 2 years now. “I feel honored, I appreciate it, and it makes me feel like I'm doing my work and working hard,” he said upon receiving this award.
Austin works at Ace Hardware located in Monroe. He does multiple things around his workplace. He explained, “I drive forklifts, move pallets, run the cashier, help customers, anything they need or want me to do.” His job is very different compared to other jobs normal highschoolers would have. “Most people work fast food. My job is more outside, moving stuff, cleaning up and stuff like that.”
Austin was not interested in working at Ace Hardware at first. “I wasn’t really interested in working at Ace Hardware at first, I thought about working at Chick-Fil-A, but I didn’t want to work at fast food.” He decided to go just fill out an application and see what happened. “They reviewed my application, they gave me a call, told me to come in for an interview, I came in for an interview and told me they wanted me to hire me on the spot.” Not a lot of people get hired on the spot, so that really means something.
WBL is a great program/class to help students like Austin get ready to go to work after high school. Austin has big plans for the future. He said, “I plan on being an electrical lineman after high school.” His future looks bright.
