News & Views: Another impactful job shadow with Chicago agriculture students

News & Views: Another impactful job shadow with Chicago agriculture students: Following a successful maiden voyage in February 2017, we were pleased to be able to coordinate our second day of job shadows for students from the Chicago High School for Agricultural Sciences on Tuesday.

We had 30 juniors and seniors paired up with 15 local hosts, including Pearl Valley Farms, Hunter Haven Farms, Pearl City Elevator, Alliance Nutrition, Adkins Energy, Berner Foods, CoreFX Ingredients, Stephenson Service Company, Scheidairy Farms, High Plains Pork, Citizens State Bank, Compeer Financial, Lena Veterinary Clinic, New Hope Veterinary Clinic and Holland & Sons Equipment. Our terrific hosts immersed their student guests in the functions of their respective businesses, and the students got a first-hand look at a number of professions that they may have only read about previously.
