It's Job Shadow Day, and students from Valdosta High School had the chance to follow city department heads.
In observance of Georgia Cities Week, students then had to give a presentation on what they learned to the Mayor and other city leaders, as well as their classmates.
The students that participated in the day are a part of the Advancements via Individual Determination (AVID) program in the high school. The goal is to show students a sliver of what happens in local government and to inspire them to work in public service.
"I got to see how police officers work, and it was good to see that police officers are not scary they are just normal people and I'm more comfortable," said Valdosta High School student Jordan Jackson. "I had a really good time."
The city will conclude celebrating Georgia Cities Week with the Art After Dark event on Friday, April 12.
