Senior Karsten Brown spent his day shadowing Lt. Colonel John Hensz at the Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base-New Orleans in Belle Chase, Louisiana
On Tuesday, February 19 and Wednesday, February 20, each CHS senior spent the day job shadowing a professional in a career field of their choice. Once the day was complete, seniors were asked to complete a reflection assignment about their job shadowing experience. The mentors were also given an opportunity to evaluate their student and comment on the Job Shadowing Program.
The purpose of the program was to give every senior a chance to get an insider’s view of daily life in the world of work. This experience can help them decide on potential college majors and career paths.
