Punxsy Phil wasn’t the only one shadowing this month; eighth graders participated in a day of job shadowing on Friday, February 6.
Twins Lance and Luke Dague spent the day with employees of Bun Air at the Bedford Airport. “Tim Griffith showed us how to inspect planes,” said Luke. “It was a lot of fun, and we learned a lot.”
Their classmate Nick Stillwagon spent the day at the Pennsylvania National Guard in Everett with Sergeant Christopher Clark. Other eighth graders observed a wide variety of employers, from Ginger’s Asian Kitchen in Cumberland to the LaVale Veterinary Hospital.
Hallie Sisk observed dental hygienist Cassie Rock at Family Dental Care in Cumberland. “It was so much fun learning about how the dentists can take care of our teeth,” said Hallie. “This was such a great idea.”
Her classmate Riley McCoy had a similar experience shadowing surgical technician Jeanie Cauley in the operating room at Western Maryland Health System. “I couldn’t ask for a better experience,” said Riley, who appears in the photo above with Ms. Cauley.
The job shadowing was organized by personal development mentor Mrs. Joey Emerick. The guidance counselor said, “It was a great experience for our students to learn about work in the real world, and we’re so grateful to all those businesses and agencies that took in our students for the day.”
