Good Shepherd Episcopal Church program ends first year on high note

From West Virginia-

After eight weeks, a group committed to provide positive reinforcement to area children ended its first year on a high note with plans to expand the program in 2017, its second year.

In June, two groups - the Neighbors group in the Parkersburg City Council Fourth District and the Friends of Parkersburg's Parks - launched the Neighborhood Youth Academy at Good Shepherd Episcopal Church at 903 Charles St. in Parkersburg.

For the past eight weeks, the children have seen presentations by firefighters, police officers, EMTs, nurses, people from the U.S. military and even beekeepers and bicycle mechanics as to what kinds of careers they could possibly look to in the future, said the Rev. Marjorie Bevans, rector of Good Shepherd.
