GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.  — Students will be able to explore careers for 60 minutes on the first Virtual Groundhog Shadow Day Kent ISD reports.

On Feb. 5, 2021 students 9-12th grade are invited to explore various careers through Zoom. The virtual fair is organized into three sessions 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m., 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m., and 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m.

“The opportunities for students on Groundhog Shadow Day are tremendous,” explained Ron Koehler, interim Kent ISD superintendent. “The chance to explore a potential career field, see and hear what the work is like and observe people actively engaged in it can make a real difference for students. This experience might well launch them on their career path. We are grateful to all of the employers connecting their workplaces to students.”
