Page 4 CLINCH VALLEY TIMES St, Paul, Va. Thursday, November 27, 2014 Learning business etiquette PluggedInVA Crime Scene Technician began on May 30, 2014 and will run through December 12, 2014. The cohort meets on the main campus of Southwest Virginia Community College (SWCC) three evenings each week. PluggedlnVA is a cur- riculum framework that seeks to provide motivated adult' learners with a con- textualized GED pro- gram integrated with tech- nical training as a means to develop essential work- place skills for entry-level jobs in targeted industries. An important part of the curriculum is learning pro- fessional soft skills, which includes business etiquette. One text studied by the class is The Etiquette Advantage in Business, 2rid Edition written by eti- quette experts Peggy Post and Peter Post. The Posts point out, "As today's workplace becomes increasingly com- petitive, knowing how to behave can make the dif- ference between getting ahead and getting behind." In this book, the Posts explain how to handle both everyday and unusual situ- ations that are essential to both professional and per- sonal success. The business etiquette book includes chapters that cover a plethora of topics including proper dress and grooming for the work- place. As a class project, PluggedlnVA participants are given a business cloth- ing allowance and commis- sioned to shop for attire that would be suitable for job interviews, the work- place, or special events that take place during the pro- gram. Students then com- plete the assignment by giving a presentation before their class to show how the money was spent and how the clothing can be worn for different pro- fessional occasions. The crime scene technician stu- dents gave their presenta- tions on October 16. Gladys Ingram, a stu- dent in the program, com- mented, "To make our edu- cation more fun, every stu- dent was given a $150 allowance for clothes shop- ping. The clothes had to be / Gladys Ingram's display Jason Banks' display fit for a job or a job inter- view. We all had so much fun displaying our items in class and seeing our learn- ing experience burst into life." Jason Banks, a student who is a veteran, remarked about the project, "They say that clothes make the man; I, for one, say that's true especially after going over etiquette and proper dress for a business atmos- phere with Karen in the PluggedInVA program. Some things I knew as a veteran, but others I was clueless on. In today's society with changing trends and styles, the prop- er knowledge of dress and etiquette is powerful indeed. So, if knowledge is power, then what is the means to use that knowl- edge called? Amazing, that's what! The .clothing allowance allowed me to add to my current regiment of clothing and arm me for the business world a sec- ond time." As the group's business etiquette instructor, I look forward to this special project. It is amazing to see what the students are' able to purchase with the $150 that each is given. The clothing allowance enables every student to leave the program equipped with the clothing needed to dress for success when going to a job interview or entering the workplace. Throughout the program, students work toward developing effec-- tive communication skills along with a professional image, and their new cloth- ing helps to give them con- fidence in many different situations. There are nine participants who are sched- uled to complete this pro- gram in December.

Jones.762-7963 I write just what I feel Well, I'd like to say a special thanks to Clinch Valley Times for publish- ing my articles that I've been writing for a number of years now. I have no help with anyone telling me what to write in these articles. I've been blessed to write a lot of gospel songs in my time. Someone said we love your songs but you write some of the saddest songs that I have ever heard. I said, "Some people writes what they like, oth- ers write what they think will sell. I write just what I feel." And the same way with these articles in the Clinch Valley Times. If you have any problems with the Topics of Truth, I will take 100% responsibility for what is written in the paper. If you're having a problem with the Topics of Truth, there are 3 things that you can do. 1. You can contact me at any time. 2. Just quit reading this part of the paper. 3. Keep your mouth shut. Back in the book of Genesis when the Lord questioned Adam about eating the forbidden fruit, he passed the buck on to Eve. When she was ques- tioned, she passed the buck on back to the serpent. When things don't go well, our politicians are always ready to pass the buck onto someone else. Even in my ministry, I have no one to pass the buck on to, so I will stand on my own two feet should I have to stand alone. I won't have to stand alone, Jesus has promised that He will be with me. br VaCa~taa ~t/dtnm, ~C R ,s,by Hab CRANBERRY SAUCE 1 pkg. fresh cranberries 1 cup cranberry juice cocktail 1/2 cup orange juice 1/2 cup sugar orange zest Bring cranberry juice, orange juice and sugar to a boil.
