Page 4 CLINCH VALLEY TIMES St. Paul, Va. Thursday, October 22, 2015 x Welding and carpentry capstone presentation On Wednesday, September 2, 2015, the PluggedInVA (PIVA) Welding Cohort 1 and Carpentry Cohort 2 gave their capstone presentation at 11:00 AM. This culmi- nating event for the two programs was held on the campus of Southwest Virginia Community College (SWCC) in Davis Hall. These cohorts were the first two in a series of 16 advanced manufactur- ing cohorts to be funded by the Department of Labor's Trade ,Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training (TAACCCT) Round 4 Grant. The pro- grams were provided through a partnership between Southwest Regional Adult Education (SRAE), SWCC, and the Workforce Investment Board of Southwest Virginia. The event began with a welcome and remarks by Dr. Barbara Fuller, SWCC's Vice- President of Academic and Student Services. James Dye, SWCC's Dean of Business, Engineering, and Industrial Technology, spoke about the TAACCCT Round 4 Grant, and Linda Allen, SRAE's Program Manager, spoke about the history of PIVA. PIVA staff and instruc- tors then presented certifi- cates and awards to the stu- dents. Michael Hudson of North Tazewell received an award for having perfect attendance throughout the entire seven-month weld- ing program. Carl Coleman, a carpentry grad- uate, and Miranda Shelton, a welding graduate, addressed the audience and commented about their experiences in the pro- grams. This part of the presentation ended with a slide show put together by Diana Stinson, PIVA Employment Specialist, which highlighted various events, class activities,~and workplace tours that had taken place during the pro- gram. The development of a capstone project is an important aspect of the PIVA curriculum. The completion of such a proj- ect requires students to integrate and apply the knowledge and strategies they have learned from the core content of the pro- gram. The welding cohort's project consisted of mak- ing updates and additions to SWCC's welding lab, and the carpentry cohort built the beginning phase of a restroom facility for the Richlands Section House. The students accompanied guests on tours of their labs and pre- sented their projects. At the conclusion of the tours, a reception was held. After the reception, several employers participated in a career fair for the students. Employers attending the event were Steel Fab Corporation,Swope ConstructionCompany, Electro-Mechanical Corporation, and West River Conveyors & Machinery Company. During these contextu- alized programs, PIVA par- ticipants had the opportuni- ty to earn a GED certifi- cate (if needed), a Microsoft Digital Literacy Certificate, a Career Readiness Certificate, 30 college credits, a Career Studies Certificate, and certificates in First Aid/CPR/AED, OSHA 10, OSHA 30, and NCCER (for carpentry students). Nine students completed the carpentry program, and ten students completed the welding program.

Jones 762-7963 Let the Bible be our guide Back when I was about 7 years old and my buddy was about 9, he came out to my house onemorning and he had got himself a pair of Red Rider gloves. Well, I had a pair of wire pliers, So we went over to the clover field and got us a bag and started catching bumble bees. 'He would hold them while I pulled the stinger out. We caught a bag about half full. Back in those days there was a lot more bumble bees and honey bees than you see today. So we took them to his house. He had 11 broth- es and sisters. I think there was 4 older than him and the rest were younger. So we went in the house and opened the bag and poured out all of those bumble bees. Them youn- gens started running and screaming. The bumble bees was in their hair and everywhere else. Those kids was going under the bed, under the table and behind the stove. When his naother found out what we had done, she went out and got a couple of switches and she came Movie Hotline For Showtimes ! 276-679-4252 Check Showtimes Online : CENTRAL : DRIVE- IN : Btackwood, VA - 276-679-3761 l : ADULTS= ~ CUILOHIEN: ~ : in and whipped us like some kind of borrowed mule or something that wouldn't mind. When she got done whipping us, I took off to the house. You might say, "What did your Mom and Dad say?" My Mom and Dad didn't say anything cause I didn't tell them and I was hoping nobody else would cause that would have been two more whippings I would have got. Boy has things ever more changed since those days. Now you can't even whip your own youngens due to our fine government much less someone elses. I think that's why a lot of children winds up with a bad way of life because they have no discipline. They can't discipline them in school and they can't discipline them at home and they just grow up in a crazy world. Some folks raising chil- dren needs to read Proverbs where it said, "He that spareth his rod hateth MeudRooi~cr, com Call FO~ ~/OIIr Flee hM IMIle~l his son..." It also said if you beat him with a rod, he will not die. Now we would think of that rod in our day of being a piece of steel or some- thing of that sort. I think it was far different back in those days. It was a switch or something of that nature. Whatever the situation was, it needed to be done and it still needs to be done today. I look back over my life and I thank God for my parents and every whip- ping they give me. It prob- ably kept me from growing up and being a heathern instead of a youngen. Folks, if we would go back to the Bible and let it be our guide, it would tell us how to raise our family and many other things that we need to know. It would even tell us how to shun a lake of fire and brimstone should we desire to. And I certainly hope that you're one of those that desire to make Heaven your home. If so, see you there.
