M. B. Kahn Intern Excels, Heads to Clemson June 15, 2020
Congratulations to Aaron James Berry! He receive the Curtis G. Bell Memorial Scholarship from the educational foundation of Lexington County School District One. This scholarship is awarded annually to a graduating senior from Gilbert High School who participates in two sports, is active in their church and community, holds a GPA of 3.0 or higher, and plans to attend a four-year college or university.
Aaron worked for M. B. Kahn in 2019 and 2020 in our student internship program. He was primarily assigned to the Centerville Elementary School jobsite in Gilbert, but also gained a thorough understanding of the planning, marketing, and design sides of construction as well. When K-5 students at Centerville enter their classrooms for the first time in the new school, they will walk through one of the many doorways that Aaron helped to frame – there are over 200!
“This experience has truly solidified my career path,” Aaron said. “I applied to the Construction Science & Management program at Clemson University the third day that applications were open [in 2019], and I received an early acceptance over Thanksgiving.”
Aaron stayed with M. B. Kahn through May 2020. We wish him all the best during his time at Clemson, and hope to see him back at M. B. Kahn once he graduates.
