City of Indio Providing Hands-On Work Experience for Summer Interns

This summer, Josue Huerta was given the opportunity to intern for the City of Indio through the Migrant Education Program (MEP). Josue was born in Indio and grew up in Thermal. Josue is an incoming senior at Desert Mirage High School. In his spare time, Josue likes to play tennis, soccer and make music. It is a dream of his to one day become a music producer. The MEP is designed to help families of field workers expose their children to college and give them opportunities to further their education. During Josue's internship under the direction of the City Clerk Administrator, Sabdi Sanchez, he learned about local government, the importance of maintaining city records, and the process of city council elections. Josue is very pleased to have worked with the City Clerk's Office and it has opened his eyes to a new path that he had not considered prior to his internship. Josue is planning to go to college after graduation from high school and hopes to return to city hall to further his knowledge in city administration.
