Meet the Intern: Chandler Rhodes

Prairie State is excited to welcome Chandler Rhodes as our Plant Maintenance Intern this summer.

Chandler is from Coulterville, Illinois. He is attending Southwestern Illinois College, where he studies industrial electricity. He chose this degree because he likes the risk involved in electrical work, and the field provides job security.

Chandler has previously worked at Zanders Sporting Goods and Pistol City Restaurant. He loves to hunt, play sports, fish, and just be outside.

When asked why he chose Prairie State, Chandler said, “It is one of the biggest opportunities for work around where I live. Since I’m in the electrical field, I would love to turn this internship into a full-time job. It is one of my dreams to be an electrical maintenance employee for Prairie State.”

Chandler is looking forward to learning a lot this summer, so that he can take this knowledge and use it to perform hands-on tasks in the future. He is looking to finish his degree in industrial electricity prior to beginning his career in the field.
