For the third year in a row, CHSAS hosted the the Chicago Public School’s kickoff for Ground Hog Job Shadown Day. This is a national celebration
encouraging high school students to “shadow” local business people and other professionals to get an idea of career opportunities. In Chicago, the Job Shadow
is sponsored by the Education to Careers Office headed by Jill Wine Banks, which is committed to promoting careers in vocational education and college prep.
We were fortunate to have Lt. Governor Pat Quinn as our special guest for the CHSAS kickoff. We are fortunate to have a long term relationship with Lt.
Governor Quinn which dates back to 1992 when he was a special guest at our bakery when we hosted then Governor and Mrs. Clinton for a tour of Eli’s and to
learn more about Eli’s U.–our onsite GED training center held in connection with Wright College.
We are very grateful to the Henson Robinson Zoo of Springfield, Illinois for loaning us their Ground Hog for the day. CHSAS is getting its own baby Ground
Hog in the Spring so the students and the community can join in the fun.
