Rotarians provide Workforce Ready Job Shadowing
MFISD- Job Shadowing Day

Marble Falls High School Juniors are out in the community Thursday Job Shadowing with Marble Falls Rotarians during their 2015 Career Day.  The Job Shadowing activities help students further define their career goals at a time when they are making important decisions about where to apply to post-secondary universities, colleges, certification programs, and trade schools. 

Rick Stacy and Bobbie Walker Co-Chaired this year’s Marble Falls Rotary event.  Both were highly complimentary of the efforts of the 56 Rotary volunteers who arranged and hosted 31 different career pathway tours for 215 students from Marble Falls High School and Faith Academy. In addition to the career exposure, Rotarians provided the students with a free lunch and the opportunity to network with community leaders.

The Job Shadowing Day is part of MFISD’s Career and Technology Education (CTE) initiative to produce Workforce Ready graduates.  The CTE programs in Marble Falls ISD provide students the opportunity to explore various careers, career training, and university learning pathways.  Students work through their career pathways with the goal of graduating from Marble Falls High School with a senior level practicum and at least one industry standard certification.

“I’m thankful for the wonderful relationship that we have with the Marble Falls Rotary to give our students these real life learning experiences in their career explorations,” said MFHS Principal, Manny Lunoff.  “Through the donation of their time and resources, the Rotarians are tearing down classroom walls to make a real connection with students’ coursework and workforce ready skills that they will need in future careers.  This partners is incredibly beneficial to our students and the community."
