Intern Spotlight: Ethan Rodgers
It’s officially fall, and to kick off the autumn season, we’re introducing you to our new intern, Ethan Rodgers. AM Transport has been working with interns for years now. We have so many great young people in Richland County. Our internship program is a great way for us to get to know them. And we love teaching them about the transportation industry. Did you know that transportation and transportation-related industries employ 13.1 million workers in the United States? That’s 9.1% of the workforce. And that’s why we’re always happy to welcome young people into the transportation and AMT fold.
Ethan Rodgers is 18 years old and a student at Olney Central College. He’s started at AM Transport about three weeks ago
