Page 4 CLINCH VALLEY TIMES St. Paul, Va. Thursday, September 8, 2016 Lr Part 2 ' : Southwest Regional ,~" Adult Education (SRAE) ii~has an outstanding teach- i ing staff that is dedicated to seeing adult learners in the !~:region achieve success. ~ Last week, as part of a series of articles called ii "Meet Our Teachers," you ~ met Wanda Lawson of !~,~ Richlands, who teaches ~" classes at the Richlands Business Incubator. I con- ducted an interview with Lawson about her experi- ence in adult education. As you read on, you will learn more about her work in Part 2 of last week's article. What would Lawson like the public to know , about adult education? "GED classes are FREE," stated Lawson. "Students can begin at any level and take as long as they need to complete. Students are given the opportunity to work inde- pendently, at their own pace, either on the comput- er or with direct instruction :S from the teacher. Students are encouraged to succeed, chase their dreams, and accomplish their goals." ' When asked about transformative experiences ,'~ witnessed in adult educa- tion, Lawson commented, "The most transformative ;, experience is seeing adult ,* learners who have been out : ?~ of school for many years" ": achieve their GED and :~ continue their education at the college level or go into vocational training to secure a better, higher-pay- ing job." She continued, "One former student returned to complete her educational experience because it was 'unfinished business.' She dropped out of school in the 1930's and returned to achieve her high school equivalency while she was in her 80's. It was her dream to finish her education." Issuing an invitation for adult learners to come to her class, Lawson com- mented, "If you have 'unfinished business,' have dropped out of school, and want to complete your edu- cation, I am available to help you reach those goals. You will be taught in an encouraging and support- ive environment at your own pace. If you are unable to make it to class and Internet access is available in your home, you can also do coursework from home. The GED program is a wonderful opportunity to possibly change your life and the lives of your fami- ly members." Thank you, Wanda Lawson, for sharing your thoughts on adult educa- tion. Lawson's day class at Wanda Lawson the Richlands Business Incubator meets on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday each week from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM, and her evening class meets each Tuesday and Thursday from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM. All you have to do to join a class is just show up at the appointed time, and Lawson will use her expertise to direct you on a path toward success.

I fighting a fire and thought would like to see a Holy Ghost and fire revival break out somewhere in some of our churches and the conviction power of God be there. I would like to see sinners come into repentance and people see- ing their healing. According to the Bible these things can still be. And after a week or so, maybe about time it would be finishing, wouldn't it be nice to hear that this revival has moved over here to another one of our churches and everybody just worked together to see an old time revival one time more. Folks, that's what this country needs. And what's more than that I think that's the only hope left. Well, you've probably heard that the Spirit will connect from breast to breast. Well, you will not find that in the King James Version of the Bible but in one of the 14 books that we know as the "Last Books of the Bible" that statement was made back then in one of those books. The bottom line is'. this country needs a revival. Items of Interest...
