We are so excited to announce that we are sponsoring a program that we feel is really going to make a difference in our community!
Billy Blount and Jill Buell put their minds together to create the "Work Is Good Initiative." The "Work Is Good Initiative" is an addition to the already popular Senior-Out-of-School Experience (SOSE) class offered in many area high schools.  What is unique about the "Work Is Good Initiative" is that we will be helping to pair up young adults with someone in their interested field of profession! This will provide the young adults with firsthand knowledge and understanding of a variety of work place environments by giving them access to those work places and the people who own or manage them. During the first year of the program, the "Work Is Good Initiative" has partnered with Central High School seniors to then be paired up with area employers. They are provided some interview questions to stimulate dialogue. The students will then discuss his/her findings with their SOSE teacher and a William Blount & Associates employee to help him/her process the experience and discuss with their whole class later in the semester.

Our underlying belief of the "Work Is Good Initiative" is that, not only do we need work to survive, but it's through work that we discover our own unique gifts and abilities. Through work we understand how to make ourselves useful to others and help to develop our own sense of dignity and worth. 

We are excited to announce the gracious business partners that were excited to interact with these students shortly!

As this program rolls out, if you would like to have more information or have any ideas that you think would help this program succeed, please let us know by emailing Jill Buell at
