Imagine! Your Career WorkReady Student of the Week ...

Dasia J.

Meet Dasia J., the inaugural Imagine! Your Career WorkReady Student of the Week.

Dasia is a 17-year-old student at West Mifflin Area High School interning this summer in operations at Peoples Natural Gas.

Her supervisor, Shelli Brugh, says Dasia "is hard working and is always striving for knowledge and achievement."

The Imagine! Your Career WorkReady Student of the Week, sponsored by the Citizens Bank Foundation, honors the young man or young woman who shows what it means to be work ready. Resourceful, eager to learn, contributing and dependable, the Imagine Your Career WorkReady Student of the Week goes above and beyond his or her internship responsibilities. Selected interns receive prizes including Kennywood Park tickets or movie passes.

Brugh lauded Dasia's eagerness to learn new things and willingness to accept more responsibility on the job.

"She has a positive attitude and arrives daily with a smile that is contagious," Ms. Brugh said. "(Dasia) is definitely a determined young lady with a bright future ahead of her."
