Pee Dee Students Gain From McLeod Apprenticeship Program

Eight students from throughout the Pee Dee region celebrated signing day with family and staff at the McLeod Medical Plaza Monday.

Students from Mullins High School, Marion High School, Lake City Hight School, Darlington High School, The Kings Academy, Virtus Academy, J Paul Truluck and Mayo High School for Math, Science, and Technology join the McLeod team this summer to gain valuable work experience through the S.C. Technical College System Youth Apprenticeship Carolina program.

McLeod Workforce Development Coordinator Jernasia Gaskins said she is excited about the program.

“I think it’s the first of its kind,” Gaskins said. “We’re really excited to be bringing in new talent at such a young age. There are many more opportunities but this is an awesome opportunity to start.”
