A few college interns have found themselves taking part in chemical demilitarization history while cultivating new skills on the Bechtel Pueblo Team.
“The Pueblo Chemical Agent-Destruction Pilot Plant is one of the last stockpiles of chemical munitions in the country, so the interns are essentially a part of the history as we work to destroy mustard agent,” said Michael Deltondo, project human resources specialist and intern program coordinator, PCAPP.
Deltondo said buddies and supervisors guide and mentor the students while providing insights to the chemical demilitarization program. The students return to their respective colleges, located across the country, with new skills.
“I didn’t know what to expect coming to PCAPP, but I am enjoying my time here and loving the hands-on work I am able to do,” said DeShanda Frazier, human resources intern. “I have the opportunity to work closely with employees, help coordinate the intern program and learn from amazing mentors.”
During their 10-week internship, the students are able to see the PCAPP mission, One Team, One Mission, One Goal, actualized.
“I want each intern to know that their role will have an impact on this company,” said Deltondo. “They need to make each day count.”
