Acasha Enthusiastically Accepts Position with Philadelphia Water Department!

A picture is worth a thousand words and Acasha’s photo next to the job board says it all! We are so proud to announce that we now have the second job placement of this month at the Philadelphia Water Department! Along with Fran, Acasha Mann will also be joining the team as an Engineering Aide.

Acasha explains the job with elation and animation, “The job entails that I will be learning the ins and outs of one of Philadelphia's sewage plants. I will be learning how to run tests, and work in teams to collect and relay data, like a science project, just on a daily basis!”

She also anticipates the potential new career opportunities that will inevitably come her way through this position. "This new job could potentially open several avenues for me. I'm excited about being in the lab again as I was back in school. I also look forward to the opportunity of being a scientist!”

We cannot express how thrilled we are to have supported Acasha up to this point, and continue supporting her as she navigates this new career path. Congratulations Acasha, and good luck!
