Ahead of the Seafair Festival in Seattle, Boeing’s high school interns came together to watch the Blue Angels practice their maneuvers last week.

The event was not only a chance to see one of Boeing’s most impressive products in flight, the F/A-18, but also served as an opportunity for interns to reflect on their time with the company as the summer winds down.

“Growing up in Mukilteo and Everett, I’ve always had Boeing in my sights,” said Anshu Arora, a rising senior interested in computer programming. “As an intern, I finally get to see what it is like to be an engineer here and to build amazing airplanes.”

Aaron Banh was similarly grateful for his Boeing experience. “As an intern this summer, Boeing has taught me life skills that I’ll need in the future as I begin my career.”

Pam Valdez, director of Boeing’s high school internship program and Air Force Services vice president, stressed the importance of high school interns to the business. “For Boeing, we are working to attract the best and brightest to our team. This is about investing in the future leaders of our company.”
