To culminate the Summer Jobs Student’s program, the BBA hosted a ceremonial event to congratulate the 64 Boston high school students on their hard work this summer. While the students still have another week of work at their internship before they head back to school, the ceremony brought together the students, their families, and their employers to celebrate their achievements. Summer Job star Ben Haideri spoke about his experience interning at the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office during the past two summer, and keynote speaker, Christina Miller, the Chief of District Courts and Community Prosecutions for the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office, gave the students advice on how to continue to build their professional careers after this internship ends.
