Students learn ropes job shadowing
Morrison Elementary School student Rylee Higgins job shadowed Southern Standard reporter Lisa Hobbs on Friday. Higgins wants to major in English and minor in creative writing in college. She is an avid reader and loves to write. They are pictured in front of the newspaper press.
Punxsutawney Phil didn’t see his shadow Tuesday, but local professionals did on Friday as eighth-graders participated in job shadowing.“I’m trying to help students find a career they are happy with doing,” said Eastside Elementary guidance counselor Shawn Palombo, of the job shadowing experience. “It’s bad when you have to go to work every day and you hate what you’re doing. You have to be happy with what you are doing.”All 52 of the eighth-graders at Eastside participated in job shadowing.
