A community leader, former teacher and member of many community service organizations, Emogene Puckett Burton Chandler passed away at Thursday…
With the recent graduation of the Big Sandy Community and Technical College’s 2018 class, we are reminded that it is important to honor those who have worked so hard to further their education.
For many, graduating high school can sometimes be a difficult feat to accomplish. But for those pursuing their GED that difficulty can sometimes be ratcheted up — especially when considering that some of these folks haven’t been dealt the easiest hand in life and many of them struggle to continue their education against all odds and for many different reasons. Many of these graduates had to work one, two or maybe even three jobs and raise children while attending classes, but still managed to put in the hard work and do what was necessary to ensure their children weren’t left to the same fate. That is commendable and should be rejoiced by the community as an example of the spirit that emboldens the people of our city, county and region to constantly improve and create a better future for our children.
