BY PILA HANSON — When February begins and according to legend, if the groundhog sees his shadow, winter will continue for six more weeks. Since 1996, however, the beginning of February marks National Groundhog Job Shadow Day, a joint effort of America’s Promise – Alliance for Youth, Junior Achievement and the U.S. Department of Labor where students “shadow” in the workplace to experience how the skills they learn in the classroom can be applied in the real world.

Outrigger was proud to host 15 students from Waipahu High School’s Academy of Hospitality and Tourism Feb. 2. This career shadow day is designed to help students understand the importance and relevance of their education and see firsthand the range of knowledge, skills, work ethic and teamwork the workplace demands.

Thanks go out to the properties that hosted the following students: Ma Jhanelle Abella, Sofia Acosta, Karen Agtang, Meagan Apostol, Wilma Calimag, Zaira Cruz, Angelica Graham, Angelica Pingul, Ashley Quicquic, Juliette Rosario, Kathleen Samoy, Karah Tagle, Cassean Tolentino and Erna Villoso.
