Students get chance to be job shadows at Beekmantown Central School.
The six students who visited Perkins and Legends prepared 28 lunches for the staff of this event and their fellow classmates.
Sophia Rible was interested in forensic anthropology but wasn’t sure that she would be able to find a job shadow opportunity in this area. To Sophia’s surprise, she was able to spend several hours with three professors from SUNY Plattsburgh’s Anthropology Department, where she held four human skulls and was asked to accompany the professors for local research projects this summer due to her impressive interest and education on the subject.
Although they haven’t yet reached high school, the students in Dawn Finley’s 8th grade Home and Career Skills class at Beekmantown Middle School are preparing for their future now and seeing exactly what happens when you step out of the classroom and into the office.
