For Immediate Release
City Hosts Job Shadow Day Participants

January 29, 2004 - Mayor Bill Haslam said that the City of Knoxville is participating in the nationwide Groundhog Job Shadow Program on Monday, February 2. Mayor Haslam and numerous city employees are hosting 20 students from Austin-East Magnet High School. The program will start with Mayor Haslam's greeting all the students at 9 a.m. in the City County Building's fifth floor atrium, before they leave for a morning of accompanying their designated hosts in their respective activities. After coming back together for a lunchtime review of the morning, the students will depart before 1 p.m.

Participating city employees represent the Mayor's office as well as numerous departments, including Communications and Government Relations, Community and Neighborhood Services, Law, Fire and Police. "We look to these students to be part of Knoxville's future," said Mayor Haslam. "The Groundhog Job Shadow program highlights various occupations that are available within city government. We want to show these young people that Knoxville is a great city in which have a career and settle down."

"We appreciate Mayor Haslam's support," said Dr. Jean Harper, Principal of Austin-East. "As this program gives students an up-close look at the work world, it is motivational academically. The experience shows them that what they are learning in school really will be beneficial in the future."

Knoxville's Promise, Junior Achievement of East Tennessee and UT's Educational Talent Search are local program sponsors. This is the seventh Groundhog Job Shadow Program held nationally.
