NEWS RELEASE ISSUED BY PITTSBURG COMMUNITY SCHOOLS

Pittsburg, Kan. (February 24, 2014) – On February 26, 2014, the Pittsburg High School sophomore class will be seeing what it is like to be in a career they might have an interest in pursuing. This will be an all day event with students spread across the city.

Almost 50 businesses or organizations are helping these students get a glimpse into the “real world”. These include transportation, law enforcement, medical, education, journalism, and many other careers.

The annual job shadow day is made possible through the partnership of businesses and the Business Education Alliance or BEA.

“It is great to be able to bridge education and businesses together to help provide students with the opportunity to see what it is like in a potential career,” Anna Gudde, BEA Co-Chair said.

“This gives our students a bigger outlet to explore the many careers this community has to offer,” Superintendent Destry Brown said. “Job Shadow Day gets them beginning to think about their futures.”

For more information, contact Anna Gudde at the Pittsburg Chamber of Commerce (620)231-1000.
