Page 4 CLINCH VALLEY TIMES St. Paul, Va. Thursday, January 28, 2016 PluggedlnVA Paraoptometric program participant The following article was written by Kristi McCowan of Pounding Mill, a participant in the 2 PluggedlnVA Paraoptometric program, which ran from January 5, 2015 to August 12. 2015. This PluggedlnVA program was offered through a part- nership with Southwest Regional Adult Education and Southwest Virginia Community College. Part of the PluggedlnVA cur- riculum is focused on the development of digital technology skills, which are needed in the work- place. In her article. Kristi talks about the value of learning computer skills as related to her fieM of study. Computer Applications and Concepts by Kristi McCowan The course titled "Introduction to Computer Applications and Concepts" has been one of my favorite classes in the PluggedlnVA program. As a paraoptometric, I will be expected to be knowledge- able of current computer programs, so I am thankful that I now know how to navigate Access. Word, Power Point, and Excel. Because of this course. I ana now better equipped to meet my career goals. I am now confident that I can schedule and make appointments, update patient records, and bill for the appropriate services. In addition, I know that I can graphically display needed information by using the Excel program. I am ready for the challenges that await me as a paraoptomet- ric. Although my computer class has been the highlight of my college classes, I am incredibly pleased with my whole PluggedlnVA expe- rience. I am very satisfied with this program because, overall, it has helped to give me direction. I am tak- ing responsibility for my own future and meeting lots of interesting people along the way. I know that all of my efforts will be worth the end result as I begin a career in a field I love. While in the program, Kristi earned a Microsoft Digital Literacy Certificate and a Career Readiness Certificate. PluggedlnVA is an inno- vative education and work- force training program. It delivers a six-month, inten- sive curriculum that inte- grates GED test prepara- tion, Career Readiness Credential preparation, digital technology skills. industry-specific skills. professional soft skill& and 21st century skills.

Jones 762-7963 Romans lO: 9-13 Well, I'd like to say a special thanks to all of my readers who read the Topics of Truth but espe- cially to those who I have come in contact with by mail or phone calls. Arkansas. Florida, Maryland. Richmond and especiallyDelaware and our long time reader from Indiana that left us in 2012 leaving no forward address. That's the sad part. I know that one of my Topics of Truth inspired him to know about Jesus. If this column has helped you to find peace of mind or maybe receive yot/r heal- ing we would love to hear from you, not that we would get any glory because all of the glory belongs to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. And if not. please just keep pray- ing and believing. He will come on time always. I know there's a lot of sickness out there in the land a lot of chronic dis- eases. I know too that we have good doctors and good drug. stores and good pharmaceutical people who can prescribe a medicine that will help with some ill- nesses but not all of them. There is a sickness that everybody has if they have reached the age of account- ability. That sickness is Called sin. No doctor, no drug store has the prescrip- tion to take care of this sickness. But it's not all doom and gloom. I do know there is a prescrip- tion. It is written in the Holy Bible in the book of Romans 10:9-13. That's your prescription. It is guaranteed to work and best of all, there's no charge. Please take time to read these four verses. You might say, "I don't have a Bible." Send me your name and address and I'll be sure to send you one. Maybe I've never met you in this walk of life but it will give me an opportu- nity to meet you in Heaven. Please be there.
