American Winds Receives Excellence Award for New Internship Program

On April 11, 2018 American Winds College of Aeronautics was honored by the Northeast Ohio Council on Higher Education (NOCHE) with an Excellege Award for New Internship Program. American Winds relies on student interns for a wide range of tasks, from washing airplanes to office work to special event assistance. No task is to small or unappreciated.  Chief Denise attended a luncheon to accept the award on behalf of American Winds.

Since 2011 NOCHE and Contempo DESIGN + COMMUNICATIONS have presented The Expys, NOCHE’s annual awards program recognizing and celebrating the best-of-the-best in Northeast Ohio’s internship and experiential learning ecosystem.
