Library education praised

Although we have been blanketed again throughout the county by snow, good things happening throughout the county.

Here are some of the highlights for this week.

• Several days of each of each week, the Briggs Lawrence County Library offers a time of learning for preschool age youngsters. A program that allows the attending children to learn in an environment that they can relate to is important. This is a time when children can begin developing those educational skills as well as social skills interacting with others. We applaud the library and organizers of these events for providing a foundation of learning. The events run on Monday-Thursday at the Ironton, Proctorville, South Point, and Chesapeake branches.

• Last week, Mashawna Hamilton received the 2014 Elsevier Leading Star Award. Hamilton is an assistant nursing professor and nursing skills lab coordinator at Ohio University Southern. She helped realize the Electronic Health Records (EHR) documentation simulation at the university, and was chosen for the award out of dozens of nominees from across the country. We congratulate Mashawna on the award as a result of her hard work and dedication to the nursing education program at Ohio University Southern.

We also want to remind readers to submit items that would be fitting for the Good Day Tuesday editorials. If it is something good happening around the county, we want to know about it.
