School’s Ag Department Pilots Internship Program

This past school year the Escalon High School Agriculture Department has been piloting a new Agricultural Internship Program geared towards placing juniors and seniors in agriculture related jobs within the local area. The current students in this program have gained valuable industry experience that has helped shape their future career path and goals.

Internships this past year have been in multiple agricultural pathways including Animal Science, Ag Mechanics and Welding and Production Farming.

“We are currently looking to build partnerships with new businesses that would be willing to take on an intern for the 2023-2024 school year,” said ag teacher Gypsy Stark. “These internships are meant to be educational and an opportunity for students to learn while working for the business they are placed within.”

The current EHS Ag Internship interns include Gracie Bracco, Constance Belger, Mackenzie Mendes, Victor Romero, Ricardo Castro, Zack Smallwood, Wyatt Waller, Molly Terpstra and Haylee Castro.

If a business is interested in being part of this program, contact Stark at the Escalon High School Agriculture Department for further details, her email address is

Those businesses included: Escalon Small Animal Veterinary Hospital, Barton Ranch, Pioneer Equine Hospital, Main Street Garage, JLG Enterprises, Western Erectors, Micro Grow, JM Romero Construction, Lionudakis Orchard Removal and U3 Borba Ranch.
