Thank you Stella Foster of Stella’s Column in the Chicago Sun Times for recognizing our work supporting the Chicago High School for Agricultural Sciences. Groundhog Job Shadow is one of the biggest activities of the year at CHSAS as it gives the junior and senior classes an opportunity to “shadow” a successful business person.

For 2008, we are so honored to have Dr. Carla Pugh of Northwestern Memorial Hospital and Northwestern University Medical School as our special guest for Groundhog Job Shadow Day. Dr. Pugh will be hosting students at her lab at Northwestern next Thursday and then will come out to the school to speak to the students on Tuesday, January 29th.

A recent study found that the number one career choice for young woman was being a doctor. Dr. Pugh has achieved great success as a surgeon, researcher and educator. It will be a great experience for students at CHSAS to hear her inspirational story and the great success that she has achieved through
hard and a commitment to education.
