NHS program extends thanks to businesses

Monday, May 30, 2011

To the Editor:

The Transitional Work Experience Program at Northview High School would like to express appreciation publicly for businesses personal interest, support and endeavor.

We would also like to thank the businesses who have provided a monetary donation to this program, which provides my students a paid/incentive to do their best at their jobsite and give the student motivation into their transition from school to work.

This year, the following businesses have provided our students with the opportunity to receive on-the-job training at their facility, which will help them make a better transition from high school to the adult work life: Berea Church, Brazil Head Start, Clay County Transportation, Clay City Elementary, Clay City Head Start, Cloverleaf Healthcare, County Junction, Dollar Tree, East Side Elementary, Exceptional Living Center, Forest Park Elementary, Goodwill, Head Start, Humane Society, LEAAP Center, Lynch's Nursery, Northview Custodial, North Clay Middle School, Page's Food Store, Wallace Disposal and the Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology.

Business partnership with Special Education students can and does make a difference.

Work Program Coordinator/Teacher,
