To The Editor,

The school year for 2017-2018 is coming to an end. On behalf of the Special Education Department of Wetzel County Schools, we express our sincerest appreciation to some area businesses that have contributed to the education of several of our students. The Community Based Work Program is an opportunity for many students to learn valuable work skills in an actual community business setting, thus utilizing the business as a "classroom." With the generous support and donation of quality time provided by these employers, our students have gained many important skills such as organization, time management, self-confidence, work ethics, and self initiative. These skills have added greatly to their employability in the "real world."

Participating businesses this year were: New Martinsville Health Care Center, New Martinsville School, Valley Towing, Wetzel County Hospital, Wetzel County Center for Children and Families, Wetzel County Board of Education Office, Little Lambs Pre-School at New Martinsville United Methodist Church, New Martinsville Parks and Recreation, First Christian Church, Community Breakfast at The Lighthouse Church, WV Extension Office, Wetzel County Courthouse, Save A Lot, Subway in Walmart, Hundred Farm Supply, Tennant Funeral Home, and Union Bank in Hundred.

Again, thank you. It has truly made a difference in these students' lives. If your business would like to participate in this worthwhile program, please contact me at 304-771-0878.
