FREDERICKTOWN, Mo.—Cap America hosts Southeast Missouri State University students from a job shadowing experience organized by the university’s President’s Leadership Academy. The group featured 20 students with degree programs ranging from international studies to finance.
As part of the event, students toured Cap America’s facility in Missouri and then split off into different groups. Students shadowed company employees in various departments such as human resources, finance, marketing, graphic design, overseas operations, production, and purchasing to learn more about each job.
“The promotional products industry is a wonderful career field that many young students and future leaders are not aware of,” states Mark Gammon, president and COO of Cap America. “By hosting this business learning community, we [can] educate these future professionals about the industry we all know and love.”

Following the shadowing activities, students joined company executives for a Q&A session and refreshments before returning to campus.
“This opportunity is an excellent way for these students to learn about our industry as well as possible internships in the near future,” adds Sarah Burgin, human resources director at Cap America. “Our company is growing, and we look forward to welcoming young, new talent to our team and into our industry.”
