From time to time, the Roundup sponsors students who wish to job shadow a reporter to satisfy the requirements for the Rim Country Middle School career class. All seventh grade students participate in the career class, which prepares them for life after school — from a pretend marriage to creating a household budget and managing a job. The students get a flavor of what adults grapple with day to day. The job shadow allows students to explore an on-the-job experience.
