U-Haul High School Internship Program Makes the News
The ambitious second-year high school internship program that U-Haul pioneered in conjunction with Brophy College Prep is the subject of business reporter Russ Wiles’ latest piece for the Arizona Republic and azcentral.com.
Wiles visited the U-Haul corporate towers on July 28 to see what the program was all about. The article appeared online Aug. 3.
Four of the 11 Brophy students to land U-Haul internships this year – Amir Khawaja, Brenner Nathan, Garrett Pedicini and Martin Rodriguez Nunez – met with Wiles, as did Executive Vice President Stuart Shoen.

The group shed light on the program, explained how high school students are helping an industry leader thrive, offered details on some of their duties and outlined a few of the reasons why each of them became involved.
Shoen expressed optimism about the future of the program and challenged fellow Phoenix-based companies to follow suit and find “real work” for high school students, who can bring an infectious energy and a new perspective to the workplace.
