[ARCHIVED] Las Cruces Utilities Internship Program Signs Two Students

Gerardo R. Carrasco

Las Cruces Utilities (LCU) is helping two students to further their career in water technology and growing the utility department's workforce.

On Tuesday, August 10, Gerardo R. Carrasco and Irvin M. Villa received full scholarships to complete the Water Technology Program at Doña Ana Community College and New Mexico State University.  The two students were recognized at a signing ceremony on August 10 in Council Chambers at Las Cruces City Hall.

The scholarships can be valued to as much as $65,000 when considering the cost of tuition, housing, food, books, other fees associated with the program, and certifications. Additionally, Carrasco and Villa will be provided with as much as 20 hours of paid work a week and tutoring with the water utility. Each student has made a commitment to work with LCU after graduation.

The LCU Internship Program has been operating for about three years and has developed a handful of graduates. The scholarships help to ensure the continuation of reliable, safe drinking water for the City of Las Cruces, and reliable wastewater service for the future.
