Recent New River CTC grad featured by WVU MODIFY program
The West Virginia University Center for Excellence in Disabilities MODIFY (Mentoring with Oversight for Developing Independence with Foster Youth) Program recently featured Paige Rowan, a recent cosmetology graduate, in an email promoting National Foster Care Month.

"My name is Paige Rowan. I will be receiving an Associate Degree in Applied Science and my Cosmetology License May 2022. My career goal is to build up my clientele, be the best hairdresser I can be, and hopefully own my own business in the future. I will be working at a salon in downtown Lewisburg, working on building my clientele and bettering my trade as a hairstylist.

My advice to other youth in foster care would be to never give up, keep pushing towards your goals, and allow all the people trying to help you help. It will be worth it in the end. For other youth in the MODIFY Program, my advice would be to keep up with your grades. Few people get as much financial help with school as we do with MODIFY. MODIFY gives you a real chance to get an amazing head-start on your life. I don’t know where I'd be without it. Everyone I've experienced in the MODIFY program has been extremely helpful, understandable ,and responsive. It is an amazing program along with its staff."

Former nursing student provides care to nursing program employee
During a visit to her doctor, Tina Bryant was cared for by a former New River CTC practical nursing student who provided excellent care. Dennis Snider was a graduate of the LPN class of 2015.

Updates from Dennis Snider, LPN:
“I have had my license since February 2016. My first job as an LPN was at Appalachian Hospital's Psyche center. I then moved to long term care with Genesis and later worked in the jail as a LPN. After that I spent two years working at Jackie Withrow Hospital where I learned so much about Geriatric psyche and being a charge nurse. I soon wanted to advance my skills and went to CAMC on a cardiac med-surg floor where I learned the value of patient care by giving IV medications and assessments on patients. I soon wanted something close to home so I moved to Raleigh General and have been there since 2019. I worked with cancer patients and hospice patients, as well as in an ICU setting. I then branched off into the medical office setting handling wound care and learning all the different types of dressings and what they are for. I currently work in a podiatry medical office.

I recently got engaged and expect my first child in November. My life for the past 6 years has been the best ever. I am planning to go back for my RN within the next year. I owe it all to New River.”
