TVHS March Intern of the Month - Anthony "Tony" Gorgone

Anthony “Tony” Gorgone is Twin Valley High School’s Intern of the Month for March. Gorgone is interning with Nature’s Accent Taxidermy in Narvon. Nature’s Accent is dedicated to making high quality sculpts of their customers’ hunting trophies. Gorgone says he very much enjoys his internship, saying that “It’s ALL real fun”--unable to choose a specific aspect that he likes the most. His mentor, Ben Lapp, seems to enjoy his help as much as Gorgone enjoys volunteering there. “[Tony] has a great attitude and good work ethic; he is a fast learner…” Lapp said. He is clearly getting a great and unique experience from this internship. When asked about what happens on an average day at Nature’s Accent, Gorgone said that Lapp shows him how to mount specific animals in the customer’s desired way, and he quickly and easily does it. Lapp was clearly not exaggerating about Gorgone’s ability to learn quickly, and this gift with his hands could prove very useful in the future. A fun and challenging hands-on job such as this can provide a great real-world work experience, and clearly has left a mark on Gorgone. Tony Gorgone appears to be doing great with his internship. We wish him the best in the future!
