School system receives
School Improvement Grant

By Shirley Shuman
Superintendent David Dilly announced last Friday that the local school system has been awarded a School Improvement Grant to foster improvement in various areas of Braxton County High School. Of 24 school systems who applied for this grant, Braxton was one of four who received it. “We analyzed the needs of the school in three areas,” Dilly noted. “We looked at the instructional programs, the school leadership, and the school infrastructure and found room for improvement in all three,” he added.
To fund improvement in the areas found lacking, the superintendent, Kim Dennison, and other supervisors from the central audience wrote and submitted a grant. “We selected interventions for the school that are aligned to the identified needs and, of course, included that information in the grant we submitted,” he said. He also explained that some basic plans were specified in the written grant, but added, “Of course those will be expanded as we develop the final plans.”

National magazine publishes local
woman's quilt pattern

Cottrill has been quilting since she took her first quilting class in the spring of 1992. Asked how many quilts she has made since that time, she replied,” I’m not sure just how many I’ve made, Actually, I haven’t completed a lot, but I certainly have a lot to complete. I may have close to 100 in progress.”
Perhaps she has been too busy to complete many of the quilts she began. In addition to working for the United States Postal Service in postmaster relief, she has also taught quilting in various venues. Cottrill began with “a few classes in Glenville,” where they “ended up in Town Hall because there were too many for the original site.”
