Dear Editor: 
It is with great gratitude that we write this letter on behalf of Carbondale Middle School eighth-graders and their teachers to the many businesses in the valley that allowed students to gain an extremely memorable real-world experience in various careers on Friday, May 12th. 
Over one hundred eighth-graders from Carbondale Middle School participated in a “Career Shadow” in the Glenwood, Carbondale, Basalt, and Aspen communities. Students researched future careers, called various businesses, set up their own jobs for the day, and went to work to participate in real-world training. 
The support of our communities is truly amazing. We have so many businesses that embraced this day, welcomed our students, were amazingly flexible, and were true role models for our students. Each year, we are in awe of how supportive our communities and businesses are. The students return from this day with positive stories and gigantic smiles!
Thank you again to all of the businesses that participated in Carbondale Middle School’s Career Shadow program.

eighth graders
