Please welcome our summer intern Jalen Ward who is a Senior at Henry Ford Academy: School for Creative Studies. After high school Jalen plan's on studying at Michigan State University and majoring in either Mechanical Engineering or Construction Management.

 "These last couple of weeks at White Construction has been great and I’ve learned many different things in and outside the office such as having to create project proposals, and not getting every project that has been offered. Also, I have learned about having many different important roles to have a successful company.

 So from having my internship here, I will gather as much knowledge as I can to make me have the best future for myself."
