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 Forest Park, Brazil Head Start, Clay County Bus Transportation, Carol's Creation Hair Salon, Dollar Tree, East Side Elementary, Exceptional Living Center, Forest Park Elementary, Goodwill, Humane Society, LEAAP Center, Lynch's Nursery, Northview Custodial, Northview High School, Page's Food Store, Wallace Disposal, YMCA and Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology in the Departments of Maintenance, Mailroom, Housekeeping and Aramark Foods.
