KMC students investigate careers

***image1***Whether or not Punxsutawney Phil sees his shadow this
year is still a mystery. But, hundreds of KMC servicemembers will see
shadows from 8 a.m. to noon Thursday as young people shadow them at
work. Job shadowing lets kids get an up-close look at “real jobs” and
how the skills they learn in school can be put into action.
