Junior Achievement (JA) of the Michigan Great Lakes High Schools to Tour
Northview High JA will visit March 5, Union High March 6
Grand Rapids, MI -- (March 4, 2013) -- During two half-day, on-site
opportunities, students from Northview and Union High Schools participating in
Junior Achievement will be provided an up-close look at a day-in-the life of
claims professionals at Farmers Insurance. It is part of the annual "JA Job
Shadow Blitz" where students will shadow employees from Farmers Insurance who
will teach them about the world of insurance claims.
On Tuesday, March 5, Northview High School's freshman class will tour Farmers.
"They will split into three groups to rotate through three sessions on the
claims operations here at Farmers," said Tom Johnson, HR Specialist, Farmers
Specialty Group. "We have a great teaching facility in a new building that we
think the students will enjoy and learn a lot during the day."
"Providing Greater Grand Rapids-area high school students with the opportunity
to explore career options, experience workplace etiquette, and learn the value
of education through Junior Achievement are the main objectives of our job
shadow programs," said William C. Coderre, III CFRE, president of Junior
Achievement of the Michigan Great Lakes.
