HENRY COUNTY, Va. -

Why do an internship far away when you can have one near your school?

Patrick Henry Community College teamed with two businesses to offer summer internships for Information Technology students.

It's a plan from Bassett Furniture and Bassett Office Supply to let students know they don't have to go far for a job.

It's also the first time the school has paired with local companies for internships in the IT field.
