Students from San Diego High School of Business's Academy of Finance have been honored for completing six-week internships at companies this summer.

The 24 students worked at 18 companies, including as the Omni Hotel, Boys and Girls Club and AXA, gaining valuable experience during their 120 hours of work.

The now-seniors are participating in a program that integrates academic and career technical education, business partnerships, mentoring and internships. It is funded through a California Partnership Academy grant through the state Department of Education.

The Omni Hotel hosted a reception for the students, their parents/guardians, internship hosts and academy supporters recently to salute the students’ achievements and thank their fellow hosts for their contributions to San Diego’s schools.
