Project Discovery meets Senator Chaffin

Project Discovery held our annual meet the Legislators on December 6, 2014 at Southwest Virginia Community College.  This year, our students had the opportunity to meet and talk with recently elected Senator Ben Chaffin.  Senator Chaffin visited with the students and talked about his life and decisions he made in his life that brought him to the point he is at now.  Senator Chaffin talked about the importance of college as a student and a parent sending their child to college.  He talked to them about the hard work and his determination to complete college and achieve his goals. He encouraged them to focus on their future and that they maybe roadblocks, but there is always away to overcome.  Senator Chaffin gave the students a chance to ask questions.  The students asked questions from his role as Senator to topics that concern them such as school lunches, economy, and health care.

 Students also participated in workshops that day which include: college admission, essay writing, social media,  journal writing and study skills.
