Hutchins’ birthday wish to feed the hungry in Clay County

January 23, 2013

If Elliott Hutchins gets his birthday wish, there will be a lot of hungry people fed in Clay County from now until March.
The Church Hill Elementary First Grade student will turn 7 on February 8, and he recently told his mother, Felecia Finley, something a lot of parents do not hear.
“He told me he did not want any birthday presents this year,” Finley said. “He wants people to donate canned goods for the hungry instead.”
Hutchins says that his inspiration came from commercials he saw on the Disney Channel.

Health Science classes prep students for healthcare careers

Just about everyone in Darlene Blaylock’s freshman Health Science class at the West Point School District’s Career and Technology Center wants to enter the healthcare industry in one capacity or another.
Who can blame them?
A degree in radiology alone can fetch six figures at the right healthcare facility. Doctors stand to make even better money over the course of a lifetime.
