The Randolph County Commission has pledged to support an after-school program for middle-school-aged students throughout the community.
Elkins Parks and Recreation Commission is partnering with county organizations like the family resource network to offer an educational and fun program. The county commission is donating $5,000 and hopes the program will become a network of locations throughout the county.
“We also want to see this program expand to all areas of the county, not just here in the Elkins area, and we’re hoping the citizens up there will want to participate in such a program,” said Commission President Michael Taylor.
Officials hope to begin the program shortly after the start of the 2018-19 school year and plan to offer a unique community service.
