News Outlook Your Hometown Newspaper April 04, 2013 - 5 i / Article and photos submitted by Kelly Wilson For two weeks the halls of the Bath Coun- ty Middle and High Schools have been filled with, not only the famil- iar faces of students and staff but also, gladly, the faces of community volunteers from Bath and surrounding coun- ties who invested their time to prepare our stu- dents for their future. Operation Preparation is a state wide initia- tive handed down from the Kentucky Depart- ment of Education in collaboration with the Department of Work- force Development in which every eighth and tenth grade studenl in the state is to be matched with a commu- nity volunteer who will advise each student on the process of plan- ning for college and/or a career upon gradua- tion from high school. It is beneficial for the student to engage with someone less familiar and who has a common interest and for the stu- dent to be exposed to professionals outside their home or school. The community advi- sors help bring a differ- ent point of view to the student and remind our future citizens that it's never too early to start planmng for them to reach their potential. Free of pressure, our Bath County 8th and 10th grade students spoke with one of more than twenty profes- sionals over a nine day span about their career aspirations, whether Lainey Mattox of Northeast AHEC talked with a stu- dent at the middle school about a future in Health Sciences while another student waited and listened Joe veeneman, ., Kentucky State Police spoke with two sophomores, Tyler Bromagen and Eli Hubbard, about a future in Law Enforcement peration Preparation ~|~~~~~~g~ the student has been taking the courses rec- ommended to prepare him/her for success and whether the student is on target with his/her grades. Many students were surprised at the process and felt that the effort was valuable. Stephanie Mann Crouch, parent of 10th i choice ." = Jamie Clark, a corn- -= munity volunteer from KCTCS said, "I'm im- - pressed with these kids. _-= A lot of them are asking - questions and have an - idea about what they - want to do. Many of - them already know -=_ what they want and - just have a few ques- == grade student Jesse tions on the next step." - Mann called to say, With volunteers Jesse came home from ranging from doctors school today excited to artists, Bath County about his career choice students were . fortu- - and his future in law enforcement. He said he had been matched by computer as a good candidate for the pro- fession and then he was able to speak with a Kentucky State Police- man. He feels like he will definitely explore that option now and is confident about his nate to have an array of professionals who care about the future of our students and our community. Preparing students to be College/ Career Ready through Operation Preparation advising has been time well spent both for stu- dents and advisors.

Telephone April 1,2013 Dear Cooperative Member: Annually, since March 1989, Mountain Rural Telephone Coop. Corp,, Inc. has been distributing Capital Credits to our custom- ers. As you know, Mountain Telephone received a $78 million award ($38.3 million grant & $39.8 million loan) which we continue to use toward our Fiber to the Home Project. This funding a.k.a. Broadband Stimulus Funding was made possible by the Ameri- can Recovery & Reinvestment Act of 2009. This money is allow- ing us to build our customers a highly sought after fiber network, which many of you are now experiencing with Mountain Tele- phone TV and increased Broadband Internet speeds. The Federal Government, through the USDNRUS requirements, CLOSELY RESTRICTS DISTRIBUTION OF CAPITAL CRED' ITS until 75% of the project construction is complete and Moun- tain Telephone meets set standards of financial strength AND stability. Mountain Telephone expects to meet these require- ments and resume distribution of capital credits in a few years. During this time of non-payment, your Capital Credits are con- tinuing to accumulate. We are so excited about our fiber accomplishments and what it is meaning to our customers! We feel this is a small price to pay for the technological benefits our families will receive when the project is complete. Sincerely, Mountain Telephone
