Four Hartford-area high school students spent the day with State Comptroller Nancy Wyman as part of the national Groundhog Job Shadow Day mentoring program.

The students who participated in the Job Shadow Day with Comptroller Wyman include:
Comptroller Wyman said, "I am honored to participate in this year's observance of Groundhog Job Shadow Day and hope it opens a window into the world of work for these young people. This has been a great way to begin to provide them with the knowledge and skills they will need to achieve their dreams.
