Boys tennis team defeats Aberdeen Central By Miranda Rios and Tyler Versluys Varsity boys tennis team members defeated Aberdeen Central 5-4 Monday in Mitchell. In singles, junior Nate Ackert, freshman Elliot Hartwig and junior Cole Benson all had wins. Hartwig remains undefeated at No. 2 singles. Coach Eric Weisser said he is happy about the victory over Central.
“The stars of the day were definitely Cole Benson and (senior) Ethan Elbers,” Weisser said. “The No. 2 doubles team saved three match points en route to their tiebreaker win to clinch the match. Aberdeen Central is turning into one our biggest rivals. They beat us last year, so it was nice to get a win against them.” The team will host Madison Thursday.

Finding out what you want to do. . .
Job shadowing provides high school students with opportunity to preview possible careers By Alison Rollag From teachers to firefighters to psychologists and many other careers, job shadowing offers students at WHS and in other Sioux Falls schools an opportunity to see what a job is really like before committing years of their lives and thousands of dollars to preparing for it. With over 250 careers to choose from, and more added all the time by request, there is no reason for all students to not complete a job shadow before graduation. ShadowEd provides Feature structured job shadowing opportunities for Sioux Falls high school students where they will get one-on-one time with someone in an occupation of interest to them and can see firsthand what a particular job entails. Each shadow opportunity is three to four hours in length, and is an excused absence from school. ShadowEd in the Sioux Falls Public Schools is a program sponsored by Forward Sioux Falls and coordinated by Linda Rodman, who visits WHS every Thursday during lunch periods to meet with students who wish to take advantage of the program. Since the program started in 1997, ShadowED has arranged more than 5,500 shadows with the help of more than 200 business partners in the Sioux Falls area. Rodman said the process need not be a complicated one for students to get involved in. “All of us go and buy shoes,” Rodman said. “Just as you would try on shoes, a job shadow lets you try on a job for size.” Rodman said job shadow experiences also answer ques-

tions about whether a career would be a good fit for a student and explains parts of what various jobs entail that students might not consider. Junior Becirt Kebede was proof of this point when she got a first-hand look at a career in human services recently. “I did a job shadow because I am not exactly sure of what I want to do when I graduate, and I wanted to have a glimpse of what it would be like to be a humanitarian to see if I would like it or not,” Kebede said. For her, the Job shadow proved to be very beneficial, Kebede said. “After my job shadow, I am even more interested and hope to volunteer for the Red Cross soon,” Kebede said of the positive experience. During her job shadow, Kebede was educated about what it was like to work in a job that is supported by and encourages philanthropy, she said. “I learned more about the Red Cross, like what they do and how they do it,” she said. “I also learned a lot about the volunteers because they make up about 95 percent of the people that are in the Red Cross.” Kebede agreed that all students should take part in the ShadowEd program during high school. “I recommend job shadowing to everyone because it is an awesome opportunity to decide which careers you want to have in the future,” Kebede said. The ShadowEd coordinator is available every Thursday in the WHS counseling center from 11:15 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. Students—especially juniors and seniors—are encouraged to stop by and get information about ShadowEd and learn how a job shadow can be arranged for them.
New Orleans falls to North today in 1862 History.com (MCT) Union troops officially took possession of New Orleans, completing the occupation that had begun four days earlier, on April 29, 1862. The capture of this vital southern city was a huge blow to the Confederacy. Southern military strategists planned for a Union attack down the Mississippi, not from the Gulf of Mexico. In early 1862, the Confederates concentrated their forces in northern Mississippi and western Tennessee to stave off the Yankee invasion, leaving only 3,000 militia, two uncompleted ironclads, and a few steamboats to defend New Orleans.
Our History The most imposing obstacles for the Union were two forts, Jackson and St. Phillip. In the middle of the night of April 24, Admiral David Farragut led a fleet of 24 gunboats, 19 mortar boats, and 15,000 soldiers in a daring run past the forts. Now, the river was open to New Orleans except for the ragtag Confederate fleet. The mighty Union armada plowed right through, sinking eight ships. At New Orleans, Confederate General Mansfield Lovell surveyed his tiny force and realized that resistance was futile. Crowds cursed the Yankees as all Confederate flags in the city were lowered and stars and stripes were raised in their place. The Confederacy lost a major city, and the lower Mississippi soon became a Union highway for 400 miles to Vicksburg, Mississippi.
