Project Discovery meets Senator Chaffin

Project Discovery held our annual meet the Legislators on December 6, 2014 at Southwest Virginia Community College.  This year, our students had the opportunity to meet and talk with recently elected Senator Ben Chaffin.  Senator Chaffin visited with the students and talked about his life and decisions he made in his life that brought him to the point he is at now.  Senator Chaffin talked about the importance of college as a student and a parent sending their child to college.  He talked to them about the hard work and his determination to complete college and achieve his goals. He encouraged them to focus on their future and that they maybe roadblocks, but there is always away to overcome.  Senator Chaffin gave the students a chance to ask questions.  The students asked questions from his role as Senator to topics that concern them such as school lunches, economy, and health care.

 Students also participated in workshops that day which include: college admission, essay writing, social media,  journal writing and study skills.

Project Discovery Community Service

Imagine you are lost, hungry, dirty, and know you are unwanted.  What would you do?

Well, that is the case for many dogs in our area (and cats).  People have abandon them because they did not want them, could not afford them, or other reasons.  Many of these abandon dogs are taken to the shelter, which causes overcrowding at the shelter and animals do get sick.  The shelter has to take steps to reduce the sickness and control the space.

Project Discovery students are coming to their aid.  In conjunction with the Tazewell ARC.  Students will be collecting loose change from family, friends, teachers and the community.  We call it CHANGE TO SAVE .  The Tazewell ARC (Animal Rescue Coalition) is a non-profit organization working with local law enforcement and the animal shelter to decrease the population of homeless dogs and cats in Tazewell County.  The Tazewell ARC is not a shelter.  They work with volunteers who will foster dogs and cats until they are adopted by families.  The organization also transports the dogs and cats to the family either in in-state or out of state.  We will be doing a collection for Tazewell ARC to help pay for transportation cost, food and supplies.

Like most things, it takes money to save these animals.  Student s will be collecting change staring February 3rd through February 17th.  If you would like to help or want more information, please let us know.  Our number is 276-988-5583 and email at
