Williston Area Students Get to Work

For Job Shadowing Day, high school juniors visited with career professionals.

Cutting class is usually frowned upon.

But for National Job Shadowing Day, Williston area students got a hall pass.


"It's a day off, basically, to be honest," says Kendra Davis, a Williston High School junior.

Instead of reporting to school, they showed up for work and got to work-learning more about the professional environment and potential careers.

"For me, personally, it helps me understand what it is that maybe I'd like to do in the future," says Williston high school student Paolo Pinto. 


With everything they learned, maybe school was still in session.
