Students participating showed various areas of interest so a wide variety of shadowing positions were made available to them.

Evelyn Clay, president of the Bainbridge-Decatur County Chamber of Commerce, said, “This year, the Job Shadowing Day changed to encompass the 11th grade class so that the students would gain a greater understanding of what industries are located in Decatur County and the industries would gain public exposure in hopes that the students will return to Decatur County in their future careers.”
