First Student Hosts Junior Achievement Job Shadow Day

IMG_8863CINCINNATI— Cincinnati Public School students enrolled in the Junior Achievement program at Woodward Career Technical High School recently had the opportunity to learn more about First Student, the company that provides student transportation for the school district. First Student hosted a Junior Achievement Job Shadow Day at its headquarters in downtown Cincinnati on Friday, March 20.

The Woodward students spent a half-day touring the corporate office and meeting First Student executives from nearly every department within the business, including operations, human resources, marketing and accounting.

“We are proud to support Junior Achievement,” said Dennis Maple, First Student President. “We also recognize the importance of education as the foundation for children to lead productive, meaningful and happy lives. Job Shadow Day gives students a reference point that can help guide their future choices by seeing first-hand the range of knowledge and skill a job within our industry requires.”

Junior Achievement is dedicated to educating elementary, middle and high school students about business and economics through hands-on experiences that help students plan for their future.

First Student realizes the positive impact it can have on students extends beyond the bus stop. The company is proud to take an active role in the lives of children in the Cincinnati community. First Student transports more than 16,000 Cincinnati Public School students daily.
