In February of each year, schools in Walker County, Sumiton Christian and the Jasper City systems observe Groundhog Job Shadow Day for all 10th grade students. These students have the opportunity to explore the “world of work” through a job shadow experience with local business and career fair activities at the Community Health Systems Building.
Groundhog Job Shadow Day demonstrates the connection between academics and careers, exciting students to learn by making their class work more relevant, builds community partnerships between schools and businesses that enhance the educational experience of all students, and introduces students to the requirements of professions and industries to help them prepare to join the workforce.
If your business is interested in shadowing a student please contact Linda Lewis at:
