LAREDO, Texas (KGNS) - Many high school seniors had the chance to take over many ranking positions around Laredo.

Businesses and agencies around town partnered up with the Noon Optimist Club to celebrate Youth Appreciation Day.

Students from LISD, UISD and San Agustin had the opportunity to get some hands on experience throughout the day.

Kids were able to shadow local professionals from the mayor to Border Patrol on their daily duties.

The event is held every year to give kids the chance to get some hands on experience at their possible future career.
