City Hosts Students for Junior Achievement Job Shadow Day

Posted: 03/07/2014
Nine students from Austin-East High School spent the day with City representatives for the Junior Achievement Job Shadow Day Program.

The program allows a group of middle or high school students to spend part of a day at a work site with employees. Job shadowing helps students understand the relevance of their education and they will see firsthand the range of knowledge and skills a job requires, regardless of the job or its location. Last year over 1000 students throughout Knox, Blount, Loudon and Anderson Counties participated in the challenging and rewarding practicum of the Junior Achievement Job Shadow Day.
