Page 4 CLINCH VALLEY TIMES St. Paul, Va. Thursday, June 30, 2016 PluggedInVA instructor success story In this column, I often share student success sto- ries. Readers from the ; region's communities often ) comment to me about how much they enjoy those sto- ries. Today, I want to share ,< a recent unexpected suc- ~cess story which came :;i from Larry Edwards, one : of our PluggedlnVA i (PIVA) instructors. i~ Larry Edwards is 4. Network Administrator for :~Dickenson County Public '~ Schools, and he was the ,;'- information technology .i instructor in four PIVA ? cohorts offered by ' Southwest Regional Adult '~ Education at the Dickenson Center for Education and Research from 20i0 to 2012. Larry agreed to share his story publicly in an effort to further inspire stu- • dents. He commented, "Reaching out to inspire .. students who are struggling or feel overwhelmed at ~ times during their studies is ii~: a great way to help them overcome those road , blocks, and to hear that from a former instructor .i would be great." ) In May 2016, Larry sent ii',i a message to inform PIVA '~ colleagues Vickie Ratliff of • Mountain Empire ii Community College and ~i~ Linda Allen of Southwest ~-Reglonal Adult Education that he had graduated from i.King with his University Bachelor's Degree in -'Information Technology. ,Larry said, "This was a • career path that I deter- even more work. I missed out and sacrificed hobbies that I love over the past two years, but the end result,I, I felt, was very reachable and rewarding." This experience has enabled Larry to relate to his students on a deeper level.

Jones 762-7963 A Tribute to Dr. Ralph Stanley I can remember when I was about 8 years old I saw Carter & Ralph Stanley do my first bluegrass show - What it done to me I'll never know. Since then some 70 some odd years have passed and gone And to me they were the best that ever stood behind a microphone. I'm glad Ralph decided to go on After his brother Carter was called on home. Ralph's playing and singing will forever live on. I guess he's played every state in the USA And many countries far, far away I'm sure he's playing in Heaven today. And if into Heaven we could possibly see - Ralph's probably singing "Heaven's light is shining Yes, it's shining on me" Or maybe "I've just crossed that dark roiling sea." His body's now resting free from pain and this old world of sin His soul's probably singing "Gone away with a friend." He left me with a lot of fond memories Along with some other things But I wish he could have left me What he knew on that ole five string I'd rather to have had that Than a Rolls Royce car Then maybe someday I could have been a star. The Bible teaches we don't know how Heaven will be But I hope He'll give me a home close to Dr. Ralph Stanley I know that would make my heart leap with joy Ralph might even let me be a Clinch Mountain Boy. Well, Ralph, until the Lord sees fit to take me. on home I'll keep playing your music and singing your songs: And I'll always cherish our friendship While the ages roll on.
