On April 11, about 120 Kettle Run High School
(KRHS) students participated in Career
Shadowing Day, spending time in local
businesses that are aligned with the students'
potential future careers. Four of those
students, Maddie Green ('20), Annie Hunter
('20), Javier Mendina ('19), and Abby Spota
('20), arrived at the Discovery Publications
offi ce at 9:00 a.m. Sharing an interest in
marketing and/or graphic arts, the foursome
was ready to learn!
Publisher Kathy Harper, along with two graphic
designers and a writer, offered a soup-to-nuts
overview of the many elements involved in
producing a dual-market publication, including
what it takes to sell and design ads as well
as the steps of crafting editorial copy and the
constant communication required among all
stakeholders to ensure both accuracy and
satisfaction. The Discovery Publications staff
shared a few of the challenges (deadlines,
quick turnarounds) and rewards (relationship
~ Nancy Griffi n-Bonnaire
building, helping businesses) of their
jobs, and the students asked some
insightful questions.
Director of guidance Sue Harmon
brought the career shadowing
program to KRHS when she arrived
there six years ago, but she notes
she worked on it for many years prior
at Liberty High School and it has grown and
evolved over time.
"I can't thank the community members
enough," Sue says. "Year after year, some
of them immediately tell me they will take
a student, and we always have fi rst timers
each year too. Without the community's
involvement, career shadowing would not
exist. What I love the most is to hear the
stories that the students (and some parents)
tell me about their experiences." She also
points out that through the years, the program
has enabled students to get part-time jobs,
apprenticeships, and even full-time jobs after
graduating from high school and colleg e!
"It was fun responding to the students'
questions and gratifying to witness their
positivity about the challenges ahead," Kathy
says. "I was pleased to meet four wonderful
students who will be our future leaders."
