“Give it a Try”

Christmas soon will be here
and just so we don’t regret
think of all the many presents
that for our family get.
 
Yes add that puzzle book for Tommy
and a doll for his sister Sue
perhaps you’ll realize at least this year
that all their other gifts will do.
 
Just make a list of the take aways
that they can do without
then think of all the disaster victims
in and around about.
 
Yes many people all around us
were waiting for Christmas too
yet the perils of a lifetime struck
and there was nothing they could do.
 
Now we cannot change what happened
but now so many will have none
unless we do the right thing
and from Tommy’s and Sue’s list take back one.
 
Explain to them the reasoning
and the most will understand
yes and you will feel better too
for lending all a hand.

SVCC Career Coaches Are Vital to Students

The Virginia Community College Systems High School Career coaches are a network of community college employees who are based in secondary schools across Virginia. They help high school students define their career aspirations and to recognize community college and other postsecondary programs, including apprenticeships and workforce training that can help students achieve their educational and financial goals.

The fundamental objective of the Southside Virginia Community College High School Career Coach Program is to empower students to make informed decisions about their career and educational plans and to prepare students for success in postsecondary education and training.  The career coaches bring college to high schools!

The SVCC service region spans ten counties and one city and there are 11 Career Coaches that work with students in these areas.  SVCC’s team is dedicated to inspiring and leading students in the right direction for a successful future.  

 

The SVCC Career Coaches are (Front row, Left to Right) Krisha Jones, Brunswick High School, Kate E. Locke Tharpe.
