Readers of the Lincoln Herald are no doubt familiar with our occasional articles about high school students who have received scholarships to play sports in college.  What could be better?  Perhaps signing an agreement like the one Cameron Allen did with Bosch.

While most of those high schoolers who play college sports won't make a career from their athletic endeavors, Cameron's agreement with Bosch is directed toward giving him a career with a major company.

On June 8th, 2019, Cameron graduated from West Lincoln High School.  There's a lot of excitement and celebration that comes with graduation, but also decisions that need to be made concerning the future.  Some students are fortunate enough to earn college scholarships--some for their athletic abilities and others for their academic achievements.

Luckily for Cameron, on February 25th, Michael Rhodes, who is the CDC Coordinator at the school, arranged for a presentation from Bosch Tool Corporation and the Apprenticeship 321 Program.  There Cameron was introduced to Bosch and an apprenticeship program at Gaston College. He was eager to learn more about a program that would pay for his tuition and books at Gaston College where he would obtain a two-year degree, while also paying him a 40-hour weekly salary. After attending an open house at Bosch on May 23rd, he realized this is a wonderful opportunity for him to receive a paid degree in Industrial Mechanics while also beginning a career at a thriving company.  On June 3rd, Michelle Miller, the Human Resource Manager at Bosch, visited West Lincoln High School where she offered him a full-time job/apprenticeship. Cameron accepted and is eager to begin his journey with Bosch. College classes will begin in August. On days not in the classroom, he will begin working at the company--learning hands on. Cameron is thankful for the opportunity and eager to get started.

You won't be seeing his name on the sports news, but he'll be happy having it on a degree and a paycheck.

4 - Lincoln Herald - Interns Wanted

Back in 2012, the late Larry Dellinger, having spent over half a century in the newspaper business, saw that the times had changed.  People were getting their news from the internet--more and more every day.  That's when he decided to start the Lincoln Herald.  

While much of what we do is similar to newspapers, there are differences:  Unlike most newspapers, you can read the articles the Lincoln Herald publishes FREE.  We even post links to all of them on Facebook and Twitter; and when you sign up for our FREE email service, we'll send you an email every day with links to our articles posted since the previous day's email.  That way, you won't miss the latest news, obituaries, sports and other items of interest for Lincoln, Gaston, Catawba and Cleveland counties. 

We also don't have a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, etc. edition--our news is 24-7, 365 days of the year.  We often post articles in the middle of the night and sometimes in the middle of the day.  We do our best to keep our readers informed. 

To make sure you get the latest updates, also like our Facebook page at and follow us on Twitter @LincolnHerald20.
