Andrea Scales, Lincoln College Preparatory Academy Class of 2021
Andrea Scales

Andrea Scales wants to pursue her degree in business and then to go law school. She’s been getting very practical experience as a member of the Kansas City Youth Court, which requires participants to study and pass a “bar exam” before they are allowed to help adjudicate misdemeanor cases involving other youths. But she’s also been working as an intern at J.E. Dunn Construction Group in Kansas City thanks to the Real World Learning initiative. Though she’s not working with lawyers yet, Andrea has learned a set of new skills that will serve her well whatever she chooses to do in her life. 

“I’ve had an amazing experience with some really amazing professionals at J.E. Dunn,” she said. “It’s really opened my eyes to the fact that I need to jump at any opportunity like that, because you just don’t know what you’re going to learn, who you’re going to meet and how that’s going to help you. You have to think about the long term, and that’s what I’ve started doing.”

Andrea is currently a senior at Lincoln College Preparatory Academy.
