This summer Randolph-Henry High School (RH) welcomed an intern for the very first time, and that intern was a former graduate.

Kendrik Goldman, a 2017 graduate of RH, spent five weeks working alongside the school administration staff leaning the ropes and helping out where needed.

“He was a tremendous asset,” said RH Assistant Principal Chris Holt. “There was no job too big or too small for him while he was here. Some days we just needed someone to answer the phones, and he was right there to do it no questions asked.”

Currently, Goldman is attending the University of Lynchburg where he is majoring in Sports Management and minoring in Business.

Goldman put his business mindset to use while interning at RH by suggesting ideas for the school’s new attendance incentive program that will begin this fall. “During my internship, I assisted Mr. Holt in gathering information for potential policies that may be implemented in the future,” said Goldman “Also, I helped organize data and statistics regarding all Virginia High School League (VHSL) sponsored sports and activities at RH to help improve the success of students academically and athletically.”

Also during his internship, Goldman attended a Regional Athletic Directors meeting where he observed several athletic interviews, which he said, all contributed to a very informative and educational experience.

“I believe that professionalism, leadership and passion are three of the primary qualities that I took away from this internship.” said Goldman.”

Asstistant Principal Holt said, “I think he’s going to get out there and do great things.”
