COPPERAS COVE, TX (KXXV) -

CCISD's summer hires have proven they're no strangers to hard work. Copperas Cove High School students Carly Nelson, Abi Baker and Matthew Aquino are working in the school district's warehouse facility and are doing the work of nearly double the staff, said Frank Aguilar, CCISD records, instructional materials and surplus specialist. 

“They have done the job that usually takes five summer hires plus myself to do in order to prepare the district for the new school year with all required and newly adopted Instructional materials,” Aguilar said. 

Under Aguilar’s supervision, the team of students has delivered approximately 17,269 of instructional materials to all campuses within the district. They have also assisted in the shredding over 400 boxes of business and student records that have reached their retention date and were now eligible for destruction.

This is the second year that Nelson has worked during the summer for the district. Already familiar with the process, she provided leadership and work skills that she to her fellow student coworkers.

“The most rewarding thing about this job is being thanked after helping someone even if it was just something small,” Nelson said. “I have learned what the expectations are for a real job and gotten experience for future jobs.”

Nelson hopes to work for the district again next summer.
