More than 40 Chaloner Middle School 8th Graders spent the day Thursday shadowing local business professionals.  Students got a behind the scenes look at law enforcement, firefighting, business, photography, medical, and other service careers. 

Ethan Sledge who wants to pursue a career in accounting spent his time working with City of Roanoke Rapids Finance Director, Leigh Etheridge.  Sledge said, "This was a great eye opening experience."    

The program was organized through the Roanoke Valley Chamber of Commerce's Business Education Partnership.
