As a relative newcomer to the Shenandoah Valley I get frequent, pleasant, surprises when I learn about activities and programs taking place here. Monday’s photo story, “AirCare helicopter offers students up-close lesson,” illustrated two career preparation programs at Handley High School and talked of two more. Our son is a firefighter paramedic who got his start as a high school volunteer in the Burke, VA, Volunteer Fire Department. He would have been thrilled by an opportunity to get that start within his high school experience. Thank you, and congratulations Handley. Keep up the good work.
