Grand Island Shadow Dayby jmaloni
The students of Grand Island High School had the unique opportunity once again to "shadow" a career for a day on Tuesday, April 3.
Beginning the day with breakfast and inspiration from guest speaker, the Hon. State Supreme Court Judge Henry Nowak, the students were prepared for a peek into the world of work. Locations this year included: the Buffalo FBI office, 98.5 WKSE radio station, Sweet Beginnings Bakery, Cannon Design, and local Grand Island schools. This unique program continues because of the efforts of teachers Sandy Burns and Cheryl Chamberlain in conjunction with the Grand Island Chamber of Commerce and the Grand Island School and Business Alliance.
Career readiness is a large part of the new education initiatives in New York state, and Grand Island High School prepares students for the demands of the workplace through programs such as Shadow Day.
