Free HS Diploma Program
Offered at SP Public Library
SCOTCH PLAINS – TheScotch
Plains Public Library is offering qualified adults the opportunity to earn an
accredited high school diploma and
credentialed career certificate through
Career Online High School (COHS),
a program brought to public libraries
by Gale, part of Cengage Learning.
Part of the world’s first accredited,
private online school district, COHS
is specifically designed to reengage
adults into the education system and
prepare them for entry into post-secondary career education or the
workforce. Currently, more than 15
percent of adults in Union County
lack a high school degree or equivalent.
Scotch Plains Public Library will
award scholarships for COHS to
qualified learners looking to earn a
high school diploma and advance
their careers. Once enrolled, COHS
pairs each student with an academic
coach, who assists with developing
an individual career plan, offers on-
going guidance and encouragement,
evaluates performance, and connects
the learner with the resources needed
to demonstrate mastery of the course
material. Classes are supported by
board-certified instructors and students have 24/7 access to the online
learning platform. Coursework begins in one of eight high-growth,
high-demand career fields (across a
wide spectrum from child care and
education to certified transportation),
before progressing to the core academic subjects. Many students are
able to graduate in as few as four to
six months by transferring in previously earned high school credits.
Residents can learn more about
COHS at the Scotch Plains Public
Library or by visiting the library’s
web site www.scotlib.org.

Paul Jackson Fund Reps.
Visit Woman’s Club of WF
WESTFIELD – At a recent Home
Life Department meeting of the
Woman's Club of Westfield, members welcomed Mary Jackson and
Mary Doherty, representatives of
The Paul Jackson Fund. Mary Jackson is the sister of the late Paul
Jackson and Mary Doherty is Development Director of the fund.
Paul Jackson, diagnosed with a spinal chord tumor at the age of twenty
eight, was left paralyzed from the
chest down and lived the rest of his
life in a wheel chair. After surgery,
there was much need for extensive
rehabilitation and also much need
for financial assistance to help pay
for the uninsured procedures.
A group of friends made up of
former Westfield High School fellow football players along with parents of little leaguers Paul had
coached got together, the seed was
planted and The Paul Jackson Fund
was born. Paul was so touched by
their giving and generous spirit that
when he became physically able,
he took the helm of the fund and
began to work and pass on good
will to others who had no one to
turn to in time of crisis and worked
toward "giving hope to people without hope."
Many have been helped and many,
many more will be helped in the
future by this charity of last resort
for families with great need. The
WCW ladies present found this
story of tragedy that turned to good
will a real inspiration. Paul has
passed away yet he continues to
live on touching the lives of others
at times when a helping hand is so
needed.

Geisow at (908) 233-2339.

Family Science Night
Held by Edu. Fund
WESTFIELD – The Education
Fund’s Family Science Night on October 16, was a STEM adventure.
Over 600 parents and students worked
together to hone their science, technology, engineering, and math skills.
The highlight of the evening was the
robots in action. Both the Westfield
Robotics Team and the Union County
Vocational Tech School demonstrated
the robots’ capabilities. These high
school students also showcased the
wonders of the 3-D printer and helped
many children learn how to program
a robot.
The science wing at the high school
was bustling with hands-on experiences that highlighted the STEM program taught in Westfield’s schools.
Paper tables structured by parents and
their children were able to hold up to
thirty books. Pennies were cleaned
with the chemistry of vinegar. Marshmallows and spaghetti created strong
structures, and straw boat engineering
helped to design watercraft that could
float on the “high seas.” Geodesic
dome builders and elephant toothpaste
creators were filled with great curiosity as they worked with their parents.
Even Fred, the gummy worm, was
saved by engineering.
Thanks to Westfield’s incredible
teacher volunteers, the event was both
fun and educational.
The Education Fund will use donations from this event to fund teacher
grants and to help with STEM supplies for all ten schools. If you would
like to help with this endeavor, visit
[email protected] We also invite you to join the Education Fund’s
team.
