Fourteen Carrollton High School students spent Tuesday morning learning about various professions during the Rotary Club of Carrollton’s Job Shadow Day. The club sponsors this activity every year and the participating students join Rotarians for lunch to share their experiences at the club’s regular noon meeting.
Students shadow sponsoring Rotarians or their designees at their places of business. This year, Hana Anderson shadowed Galen Hobbs at Smalltown Bank; Taylor Gray shadowed Carroll County Commissioner Michelle Morgan; Vivian Brownson and Kevin Rios shadowed at Office Ink Plus; Stephen Hirvela, Austin Richie and Caleb Ayers shadowed the IT team at SMI; Josh McLaughlin shadowed attorney Stacey Blackmon; Ally Denney shadowed Carla Duncan at Tanner Foundation; Alex Rodriguez shadowed Carroll EMC CEO Tim Martin; D’Ovionne Davidson shadowed Dr. John Godard at Carrollton Eye Clinic; Samantha Pope shadowed the marketing department at Tanner Health System; and Will Anthony shadowed Rotary President John Jackson at his law practice.
“This is a wonderful experience for our students,” said Sally Ingui, CHS Career Center specialist. “They learn so much and are grateful for the opportunity.”
