"fq : Page 4 CLINCH VALLEY TIMES St. Paul, Va. Thursday, June 12, 2014 30 million adults have bel a high school I educ The United States Census Bureau's 2010 American Community Survey states that nearly 30 million adults in the U.S. have below a high school- level education and over 24 million have English lan- guage training needs. Even for those adults with a high school diploma, basis skills deficiencies have a detri- mental and long-lasting impact on our nation's families and economic growth. Adult education plays a critical role in the economic opportunity of adult learners each year who use these services to earn a high school-level credential, increase basic and employability skills, or improve their English lan- guage proficiency. Adult education pro- motes economic opportuni- ty and helps workers access higher-paying jobs. Workers without a high school diploma are nearly twice as likely to be unem- ployed than those with at least' some college, and they have significantly lower wages. The National Reporting System docu- ments that in 2009-2010, 165,506 students were able to successfully achieve a high school equivalency through adult education programs, and 184,704 adult learners retained or entered employment dur- ing the midst of a devastat- ing job market. Adult education helps Educ on Co:rme n :emt workers become economi- cally independent. Workers with at least some college are less likely to be on gov- ernment support, saving states and the federal gov- ernment money in the longer-term. Adult education improves economic oppor- tunities for adults and their children. Studies show that the economic benefits to adults include higher salaries and benefits, enhanced employment opportunities and stability, higher savings levels, improved working condi- tions, and personal and professional mobility. Furthermore, parental edu- cation has a strong and long-lasting impact on the educational levels of chil- dren. The National Coalition for Literacy reports that a mother's reading skill is the greatest determinant of her chil- dren's future academic suc- cess, outweighing other factors such as neighbor- hood and family income. Adult education pro- gramS are the on-ramp for many adults with low basic skills to further education and training. Economists predict that by 20i8, 63 @ percent of jobs will require postsecondary education. Transition pTograms, such as Pluggedh VA in our region and o:her programs across the naion, are help- ing adult stadents transi- tion from a0alt education to postseco]dary educa- tion. Recent data on the effectiveness of transition programs shows that stu- dents, in such programs are 56 percent more likely than regular adult education stu- dents to earn college credit, 26 percent more likely to earn a certificate or degree, and 19 percent more likely to achieve learning gains on basic skilts tests. Adult education could be your on-ramp to a better future for you and your family. If you didn't com- plete high school, contact Southwest Regional Adult Education at 866-581- 9935.

Gospel Singing in Georgia Some few years ago, I received a phone call ask- ing if me and my band would come to Chatsworth, Georgia, for a gospel singing. Well, we booked the singing. It was on a Saturday night. So, we left out on Saturday morn- ing, drove to Chastworth, Georgia, found the place where the singing was tak- ing place. The first thing, one of the guys had received some kind of award, that they presented to him there that evening before they started the singing. Well, it wasn't an awful big crowd. We was the first group there. They was some others came in and they brought all of them one group at a time to the stage and they sung. And they said, "We've got a group here out of Virginia. They'll be com- ing on next." Well after another group or two sung, "the group from Virginia will be coming on next." Well, after all of them had sung, they started around again. Hadn't got to us yet. So, I told one of my band members, "If we ain't got to sing by 12 o'clock, we're going to leave out of here." Well, it came 12 o'clock and they were still singing. So, we loaded our instruments back on the bus, and headed home. I let one of the band members drive the bus back that night. I guess everybody was kindly napping and when we come off of 40 onto Interstate 81, he failed to make the turn. After a while, I got to looking at some of the places, and I said, "Don't remember see- ing these places before. We might ought to stop and see exactly where we are." Well, pulled into a serv- ice station, asked exactly where our location was and they told us that we was on the highway to Cincinnati, Ohio and we had gone about 100 miles out of the way. So we had to turn around, come back and hit 81..Got home the next morning at about 5:30. Me and one more of my band members was all that was able to show up to church that morning. All the years I have traveled for the Lord, that was the worst trip I can ever remember. But I did remember that the Bible said in Romans 8:28, ."And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his pur- pose," So I never questioned God about that situation. Neither did I question the ones that invited us to come and sing. I just learnt from that experience that everything that shines is not gold. Everything that glitters is not a diamond. And everything that rings is not a bell. I just know that Ecclesiastes said there is a time and purpose for everything under Heaven. 14549 Bull Run Road Coeburn VA 24230 276-395-2"102 Clinch River Farmers Market Saturday 8 am - 1 pm The Farmers Market is open.
