Wheelchair Body Builder Nick Scott Speaks to Sophomore students at Rio Grande University
The Gallia Vinton ESC was instrumental in bringing Nick Scott to the campus of Rio Grande to meet with sophomore students and speak of Making the Right Choices. Students from Jackson, Wellston, Gallipolis and Vinton County schools joined together for a Transition Camp. The purpose of the camp was to encourage a smooth transition from high school to the workforce or higher educational opportunities. Following the morning session with Mr. Scott the students enjoyed a lunch at the Rio Grande Cafeteria followed by additional 30-minute sessions regarding Advocacy, Money, Job Preparation, Communications, Teamwork, Professionalism, Problem Solving, and Attitude.
Students were met by Rio Ambassadors who led different groups throughout the day. Each student received a tote, fidget cube, earbuds, notebook, pen, McDonald Gift Card and pencil. At the end of the day student prizes were drawn. A drawing was held for each district and prizes of two (2) - RCA Android 7 inch Tablets and three (3) iTune Gift Cards were awarded to students from each school district.
