Oneida Junior Lands Prestigious Internship at SU
Posted on 05/08/2019

An Oneida Junior will be heading to Syracuse University this summer to take part in a prestigious research internship at SU’s College of Engineering. Jamie Jones will focus on biomedical engineering during her time at SU.


Jones attends the Engineering Program at Madison-Oneida BOCES. “I chose to go into Engineering at MOBOCES because my brother went through the program and he really loved the teacher,” said Jones.  


Jones is the first student ever from BOCES to be accepted into this program. “I was checking my email for a month after I applied to see if I got in and once I found out that I got in and got into the program I wanted, I was ecstatic, I was in the car with my mom and I could not believe it, I emailed Mr. Hale right away, I was so excited.”


"Look what happens to students who try hard to change their future and change the world. As an educator, I love the passion that this kid shows," Dave Hale, Engineering Instructor at Madison-Oneida BOCES.


Hale credits the combination of her work at BOCES and her skills developed at Oneida for her success. “We take students from Oneida who are strong in math and science and apply those skills to real world engineering solutions. We further use our strong partnerships with top-50 Universities to bring about unprecedented opportunities for Oneida students.”


 “I will be working with undergraduates, graduate students, and professors, in researching a certain topic and I chose the biomedical branch so I am going to be researching how we can better understand the blood flow path to the brain to cure disease like Alzheimer’s,” said Jones.


The internship begins at the end of June and lasts for six weeks.  “I feel like I am opening the door for other kids and I know I am so lucky to go there. I can’t wait for other kids like me to get these opportunities,” said Jones.
