Goose Creek Memorial HS Students Shadow City of Baytown Employees


New faces can be seen in department across the City of Baytown today. Over 20 students from Goose Creek Memorial High School are exploring careers in municipal government as part as their participation in the GCCISD Global Business Academy. 

Students will be shadowing employees from several City departments including Fire, Parks and Recreation, and City Hall. In the public affairs and marketing office Amariss Alaniz is experiencing different pathways in communication with the city’s residents. Miss Alaniz will be writing press releases and communicating over the city’s social media channels, in addition to learning other aspects in a career in marketing. 

Amariss Alaniz is a senior at GCM and co-enrolled at Lee College studying Logistics. After graduation she plans to finish her Associates Degree before moving on to obtaining a Marketing Degree from the University of Houston. The daughter of Benito and Edna Alaniz, Miss Alaniz plans to become a small business owner here in Baytown. 

Amariss, along with other participating students, will spend the morning with their city employee, and then will have an opportunity to network and talk with other participating departments over lunch, before returning to school for the afternoon.
