To the Editor:

The Transitional Work Experience Program at Northview High School would like to express appreciation publicly for our business partners' 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 gives my students motivation during 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, Bob & Angie's Restaurant, Bob Bowen Ford, Brazil Forest Park, Brazil Head Start, Clay County Bus Transportation, Carol's Creation Hair Salon, East Side Elementary School, Exceptional Living Center, Forest Park Elementary, Goodwill, Harmony Diner, Humane Society, LEAAP Center, Northview Custodial, Page's Food Store, Wallace Disposal, YMCA, Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology in the Department of Maintenance, Mailroom, Housekeeping and Recycling and Aramark Foods.

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