On March 20, 2015, Strauss Troy participated in Junior Achievement’s Job Shadow Day by hosting 10 students from Shroder High School. Job Shadow Day is an initiative to actively engage students in the world of work by giving them the opportunity to experience a “real job” up close.
Strauss Troy Attorney Jim Heldman, who serves on the Board of Junior Achievement of OKI Partners, Inc. shared, “As part of our ongoing commitment to helping our community, Strauss Troy was excited to provide an opportunity for high school students to observe how our profession works.”
Strauss Troy Attorneys Jim Heldman, Emily Supinger and Erinn McKee Hannigan together with Ryan Smith of the firm’s Information Systems Department and Marsha Weaver-Butler, Strauss Troy’s Director of Communications/Facilities, planned the event and made presentations to the students.
This is the 18th year for the program, which is sponsored nationally by Junior Achievement, America’s Promise, U.S. Department of Education, and the Taco Bell Foundation.
In 2014, Junior Achievement provided job shadow opportunities for more than 2,700 students in Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky. More than 132 tri-state companies participated in the event.
