Thanks for organizing scholarship run
The staff and students at South Charleston High School wish to thank the Kanawha County schoolmasters and George Aulenbacher, principal of George Washington High School, for organizing the Trecia Peterson Scholarship run at St. Albans High School.
The turnout was great, and we appreciate all the people who came to support this worthwhile event.
Trecia was a long-time educator in Kanawha County Schools, most recently the assistant principal of curriculum at SCHS. She lost a long battle with breast cancer this past fall. Through it all and especially at the end, she exhibited a strength and will that is a true inspiration to everyone who knew her. She never left her job or her "children" of the Black Eagle family. The scholarship in her name supports a South Charleston High School student who has overcome adversity and wishes to continue their education by attending college.
Trecia is missed every day, but the legacy of her commitment to her profession and her strength and dedication will last in our hearts and minds for years to come. For those of us lucky enough to have known Trecia, it is a great tribute to an outstanding educator.

Reader supports sensible gun laws
Please continue to help "We the people" in the fight for sensible gun legislation. I recognize, because the NRA propaganda, that many feel that their right to gun ownership is being infringed. Anyone who reads and cares knows nothing is further from the truth. We are a family of gun owners. Many think it is a first step in confiscating their guns. We know, those who read, that is inaccurate and cannot happen under our constitutional rights. Keep up the good work and thank you from all who care about the slaughter of innocents.
