Job Shadowing very visible on Tuesday; Job Corps students worked in town

There was a lot of shadowing going on during Ground Hog Day on Tuesday. Even though our Lander Lil didn't see her shadow on that very cloudy day, the Wind River Job Corps Center sent out 34 students throughout the community on a "Job Shadow" event.

Simms at his welding company. "They did a good job. I showed them stuff one time and they were mentoring each other, especially those who had enrolled earlier were helping the newer students. They did an awesome job building a fire pit project I had. In the short time they were here, they got 60 percent of the job completed, and it was a good size job."
