Throughout the week of February 25 to March 1, the 8th-graders at  Nemaha Central Middle School shadowed some careers they were interested in. The months leading up to the job shadow the students were taught skills that would help them succeed not only during their job shadow but also in life. Some of these skills were how to greet others and give a formal handshake. Students also had the opportunity to choose where they would like to shadow. With the help of Mrs. Niehues, the students were able to schedule the date and times of their shadows.

Addy Holthaus said, "It was very fun and exciting and it was a great hands-on experience."

Monday through Friday students were shadowing from 8-10 or 10-12. Students shadowed from a whopping 24 businesses, most inside of Seneca, but some out of town. Some locations in Seneca were the Emergency Medical Service station, The Law Enforcement Office, O’Keefe Law Office, and Young Backhoe and Trenching. A few students also went to Schenck Processing in Sabetha, the Baileyville Vet Clinic, and the K-State Insect Zoo in Manhattan. Job Shadowing was a great opportunity for the 8th-grade class to experience careers they would like to pursue, and they hope it will continue on in the future.

"I had a great time and I was in awe during the whole experience," said Jaden Thomas.
