For schools whose students complete WV eMentoring, The Education Alliance wants to recognize them for their hard work and participation. When schools reach a certain completion level, they will be eligible for the WV eMentoring Honor Roll Program.
Students at Hedgesville High School were recognized as a WV eMentoring Honor Roll School during a celebration at their school last month. These students participated in WV eMentoring over a ten week period and successfully completed all activities within the program.
These students had opportunities to speak with mentors in various fields, including education, nursing and journalism. During a debriefing session, students shared that their mentor relationship was one of the most valuable aspects of the program.
“The most valuable thing about WV eMentoring is being able to talk to someone who understands what you’re talking about and asking. The questions you ask get answered in a great way and that’s easy to understand,” said one student. Another student answered that the activities gave her a clearer picture of what programs are available in her community.
During the celebration, a Kindle Fire drawing was held. Danielle was the lucky winner! She is a sophomore at Hedgesville High School who has been inspired to pursue a career in the medical field. Danielle picked Patti as her mentor, and for several weeks they exchanged messages about Danielle’s goal to become an anesthesiologist. Congratulations to Danielle for winning the Kindle Fire and many thanks to her mentor, Patti, for taking time to talk with her!
Congratulations to Hedgesville High School for their participation in the WV eMentoring program! We thank the students and their instructor, Christi Heaton, for their hard work and cannot wait to come back next fall!
