The 8th grade students in Mrs. Janet Baker's Journey to Careers class participated in job-shadowing experiences on April 15. This experience helped them learn about many different types of careers. Mrs. Baker and the class would like to thank the following individuals and businesses who allowed them to have this opportunity:
Karen Applegate, Pam Hunter, Paula Wright, Cissy Masingill-Teachers at Sarepta High School; Amy Howard-Teacher at Shongaloo High School; Judy Maxwell-McConnell & Slattery Law Firm, Springhill; Jennifer Kennedy, Melissa Madden-Minden Medical Center; Amber Teague-Salon, Springhill; Captain Scott Johnston and Sgt. Major Donald Hemphill-Youth Challenge Program, Camp Minden; Sarah Roussel-Starbucks, Bossier City; Dr. Abhi Mane-Towne South Animal Hospital, Shreveport; Graydon Kitchens, Jr, Anna Speer-Webster Parish Office of the District Attorney, Minden; Ashley Haehn-McMahen's Veterinary Clinic, Springhill and Dawn Bergeron-Bayou Dawn's Snowballs, Sweets, & Eats, Springhill.
The students completed writing assignments, interviews, and evaluations of the experience. This activity was part of the Webster Educational Endowment Fund grant "Oh, the Places You Will Go."
Mrs. Baker would also like to thank the parents who provided transportation for their children to have this opportunity to learn outside of the classroom.
