Students tour The Globe

Marysville Junior High School students visited The Marysville Globe printing plant and offices last week to learn about the news business as they examine their career and educational opportunities. They learned how different organizations gather and disseminate information and how the publishing world deals with the opportunities and challenges posed by electronic media from websites to blogs and everything in between. Here teacher Jim Strickland poses with four of his students; from left are Kyle Scholl, Clyde McBean, Preston Dwoskin, Strickland, and Wade Abuan. Strickland is on a mission to get his students involved in the larger community and tours many local businesses with students to whet their appetite for vocational and educational planning. Past tours involved Les Schwab tire stores, where students shadowed a mechanic for part of the workday to see if that line of work was up their alley. Other tours range from beauty salons to espresso shops and Strickland welcomes input from area businesses who might want to explain just what they do to his eager students.
