Two Cheatham County Central High School students are gaining some valuable on-the-job experience by participating in a unique opportunity at the school district’s transportation facility.

The school district has partnered with Workforce Essentials in Ashland City to provide seniors Jacob Lingner and Michael Tobitt with a paid work experience.

As part of this opportunity, the two work with mechanics at the transportation facility on Thompson Road in Ashland City in the afternoons from noon to 4 p.m. They started April 2 and will work through the end of the school year.

“We are excited about this partnership with Workforce Essentials and the assistance we received from Renea Rosson to make this possible,” said Cal Blacker, the district’s maintenance, transportation and custodial director. “The real-world experience that Jacob and Michael are gaining will offer them a significant boost to their career success.”
