High School Marketing Class Joins Higher Education Marketing Firm for Day of Job Shadowing


LENEXA, Kan. – (April 17, 2018) Last week, Thruline hosted an eager class of marketing students from JC Harmon High School for a day of fun and learning at their new office space. The marketing class, currently learning about digital marketing, SEO and social media, was able to learn how the marketing practices they cover in class are put to use for real clients in an agency setting.


“Most of these students will be graduating in May, and we have a rare opportunity to encourage them to continue their education and pursue rewarding careers” said Brian Hansen, Social Media Strategist at Thruline who led the group throughout the day. “We are marketers focused on students and they are students focused on marketing; it’s a perfect match!”


The students were met by Chief Marketing Officer, Tracy Kreikemeier in the morning for an introduction and tour followed by a number of trainings and discussions with different Thruline employees. They finished off the day posing for professional headshots for their LinkedIn profiles.


“Hosting the JC Harmon students last week was a great opportunity for Thruline to give back to our community. Sharing the passion for marketing and education with these students hits at the core of our mission and we’re proud to serve as mentors for a younger generation,” said Tracy Kreikemeier, CMO “It was also really fun for them to be the first group we shared our new office space with and see how much they enjoyed it!”
