Job shadows learn more, thanks to community's help

Posted: Friday, March 06, 2009

The 15th annual Job Shadow Day took place in Kenai on Feb. 24. The efforts of the Kenai Chamber of Commerce, Kenai Central High School, Peninsula Job Center, Kenai Rotary and all the community volunteers are the reason for the programs continued success. From our local business professionals who took time out of their day to spend with the students in their workplace, to the food and venue sponsors and the coordinators that make it all happen, this occasion would not be possible without their support.
