:Page 4 CLINCH VALLEY TIMES St. Paul, Va. Thursday, April 7, 2016 Paraoptometric participant The following reflection was written by Sierra Rife of Swords Creek, a partici- pant in the PluggedlnVA Paraoptometric program, which ran from January 5, 2015 to August 12, 2015. During the program, the PluggedInVA Paraoptometric and i'Phlebotomy Technician cohorts spent a cultural ',afternoon in Abingdon, i Virginia. As part of the stu- dents' training in business , etiquette, this field trip pro- " vided an opportunity for the students to practice many of their newly i acquired professional skills. It was a special event hosted by Southwest ~ Regional Adult Education ~ for which students wore their business attire, which had recently been pur- chased with a clothing allowance provided by the program. The afternoon's events began with a visit to Abingdon's historic Barter Theatre where the cohorts watched Southern Fried 'Nuptials, a comedy by ' Osborne and Eppler. "'Following the play, the group traveled further down Main Street to enjoy dinner at JJ's Restaurant. More Than Just an Education by Sierra Rife I am so blessed to have been a part of the PluggedlnVA program at Southwest Virginia Community College. I became a student in this wonderful program in January 2015. I am tra'ming to be a certified paraop- tometic. I absolutely love this program, and it has helped me begin my col- lege education. The teach- ers are great; they have really helped me under- stand the information at a fast pace. Not only has this program been a great expe- rience, it has also changed my life forever. I have been offered and have accepted a job as a paraoptometric at Envision Eye Care. This alone is well worth all the time and hard work that I have put into continuing my education. Along with all the hard work, my classmates and I have also had lots of fun times. For instance, about midway through the pro- gram, as a class, we went to the Barter Theater and out to eat. To start the evening out,' we all met at the Barter to watch a com- edy called Southern Fried Nuptials. Linda Allen, Program Manager for Southwest Regional Adult Education, gave us our tickets, and we got seated. The play was absolutely wonderful. This is one of the funniest plays that I have ever watched. After the play, we all went to eat dinner at JJ's Restaurant. The food was awesome. (I had a delicious steak). It was super fun to eat dinner with my classmates and teachers. I really enjoyed the entire evening. I had a great time, and I am so thankful to PluggedlnVA for letting us have this wonderful experience. I leave this experience not just with a college educa- tion but with fond memo- ries and great friends. While in the program, Sierra earned a Career Studies Certificate in Paraoptometric by com- pleting 28 college credits. She also earned a Microsoft Digital Literacy Certificate and a Career Readiness Certificate. Sierra is currently employed full-time as a paraoptometric at Envision Eye Care in Cedar Bluff. She has recently added scribing to her professional duties. Sierra says of the program, "PluggedlnVA saved me; it is the best pro- gram ever. I was ready to learn something and go to work. It really worked out well for me:" Sierra is scheduled to take the CPO (certified Pamoptometric) exam on May 14, and she and some former class- mates have formed a study group to prepare for the exam.

Jones 762-7963 "Thank God, I'm free" Back when I was just a young man my landlord told me, "Tomorrow we have to go to Big Moccasin and get the bull and bring him over to this farm., Big Moccasin was about 35 miles away. Well, we went over there, loaded the bull in the truck and he picked up a couple of passengers which was his mother and his brother. That was all that could ride in the cab so I had to ride in the back with the bull. So they fled his head down to the frame of the truck and instead of standing in the comer, I said, 'Tll just ride the bull." So that's what I done. All that distance I throwed up my hands and waved at people. I was a , cowboy having a blast. So we got home and loosed and unloaded the bull. We turned him out on the pasture and he was free again. However, the next morning, me and my friend was walking through the pasture field and I said, "Would you like to see me ride that bull?" He said, "Yeah, I'd like to see you do that." So I jumped up on his back but he was no longer in the truck nor did he have his head tied. About the second buck he made, he threw me about 100 feet. When I stopped rolling down the hill, I looked like I'd been in a plane crash. A few years went by and I found out that I was a prisoner to sinand was being rode by the Devil. I was lost and on my way to hell. But there was light at the end of the tunnel. One night I allowed Jesus to come into my life and set me free, No longer was I bound by the powers of the devil. I took off the saddle of sin and put on a spiritual saddle. I didn't quit drink- ing I just started drinking from another fountain. I didn't quit dancing, I just changed partners. One of my favorite songs is "Thank God, I'm free."
