Lindsey Riddle participates in Ohio University's Ohio Mentor Project

Vinton County High School student Lindsey Riddle, with guidance from her Patton College mentor Annie Dill, prepared thank you kits for
50 front-line healthcare workers in Vinton County.

Ohio University's Ohio Mentor project serves student's across southeast Ohio through targeted mentoring and service-learning activities.  The program structure consists of 3 components.  
1.  Tutoring
2.  Service Learning
3.  Education/College Pathway

The mentoring sessions include lessons, activities and engagement surrounding topics including:  college and career planning, tutoring in reading, writing and mathematics, financial literacy, service learning, ACT/SAT prep, soft skill development, understanding college options, diversity/cultural competency, and leadership skills.

For the service learning project, mentors work with mentees to identity a service need in their community.  Mentees define, plan, leverage resources and implement their service learning project, with mentors as their facilitators.

These are the questions/answers from Guidance Counselor, Krystal Price and Mentee, Lindsey Riddle.
1.  Why do you feel the mentor program is important?  The OU mentor program  is important because it teaches students how to be a leader and how to get involved with the community and other activities in school.
2.  What have you learned from being in the program?  While in the program I have learned how to help within my community.  I have learned to give back, and i have learned  to not be afraid to try new things.
3.  Why should students get involved in the mentor program?  Students should get involved with the program because you have the chance to meet amazing, new people and you gain many new life skills.  I have met some amazing people while in the program and I have accomplished a service learning project, which was very fun to do.
4.  What does this program mean to you personally?  Personally in the program I've had amazing experiences and the program itself stands for finding yourself as a leader and making memories that will  last a lifetime.

Lindsey is a junior and is in her 2nd year of the OU mentor program.

VCLSD Masking Requirement Effective 9-2-21

After deliberate consideration and a review of current COVID data, Vinton County Local Schools will be requiring masking for students and staff in ALL buildings, beginning Thursday, September 2nd. 

This change is necessary in order to reduce quarantines and keep our doors open for learning.  We want your child(ren) to receive high quality, 

in-person instruction in the safest environment possible.  

While we respect the varied differences in opinion, if your child is wearing a mask during exposure, your child does not need to be quarantined.  

In advance, we thank you for your understanding, cooperation, and support as we navigate through the evolving challenges of COVID.  

We will continue to monitor numbers and will reevaluate this masking requirement on a regular basis.
