Job Shadow a great opportunity

Posted: Thursday, March 11, 2010

The Kenai Chamber of Commerce and Kenai Central High School hosted its 16th Annual Job Shadow Day on March 3. This year there were more than 100 students in the junior class that went out into local businesses for a half-day job shadow experience. We had 13 students shadow different departments at Central Peninsula Hospital, five students at the Kenai Police Department and about 15 students in the oil and gas industry with various companies such as Tesoro and Marathon.

The Kenai Chamber of Commerce wishes to extend a sincere thank you to all of those involved in making this program a success year after year.

All the food for our luncheon was donated by McDonald's, Arby's, Paradiso's and Coca Cola. Thank you to our volunteers, Tim Navarre, Kenai Rotary, Kenai Chamber Board of Directors, Chamber Ambassadors, Chris DesOrmeaux, Terry Eubank, Mayor Pat Porter, and especially to all of our business hosts that participated this year. Also, thank you to the Kenai Christian Church for providing a venue for our luncheon.

This program offers great opportunity for not only the junior class of KCHS, but the local businesses as well. What a great chance to educate our youth and lead them down the path to being your next candidate for hire! This program opens doors for today's youth and we appreciate the communities involvement. We're looking forward to continuing the program's success in future years to come.
