Clairemont High Students Wrap Up Bus Maintenance Internship

Fleet maintenance staff and students celebrate a job well done.
Keeping a bus fleet up and running is a big job and four Clairemont High students just wrapped up a semester as interns in San Diego Unified's Transportation Fleet Maintenance Department.

The program, now in its fourth year, takes students through tasks such as engine diagnostics, preventative maintenance, upholstery repair, glass replacement and tire repair.

Students Samuel Ramirez, Tanner Camerena, Geovany Lopez, and Simon Rodriguez spent the semester at the districts Transportation Facility in Kearny Mesa, in addition to taking classes Clairemont. If their career path goes in the direction of fleet maintenance, they can use the experience on their resume.
