WEST VIRGINIA CABLE TELECOMMUNICATIONS ASSOCIATION WINNER OF ACC BEACON AWARD®
National Organization Cites West Virginia’s Take a Veteran to School Day Program As Among Nation’s Best
The West Virginia Cable Telecommunications Association (WVCTA) has been named as a winner in the 2009 Beacon Awards ® competition for its “Take a Veteran to School Day” program. Sponsored by the Association of Cable Communicators (ACC), the national Beacon Awards competition recognizes excellence in communications and public affairs throughout the cable industry and is celebrating its 20th Anniversary this year.
The West Virginia Cable Telecommunications Association – led by Suddenlink Communications, Comcast and Time Warner Cable – partnered with the History™ channel’s Take a Veteran to School Day initiative, to bring together veterans and high school students and educators in West Virginia. Twelve events were held throughout the state in the weeks surrounding Veterans Day 2008. U.S. Senator Jay Rockefeller of West Virginia launched the project at Robert C. Byrd High School in Clarksburg on November 10, 2008. More than 4,000 students and educators learned about the importance of veterans in their communities, 19 veterans were cataloged for the Library of Congress’ Veterans History Project and over 60 veterans participated in the events. This year, thirteen West Virginia high schools will participate in the program from November 9-19 and more veterans’ stories will be recorded. Senator Rockefeller will kick off this year’s events at Brooke High School in Wellsburg on November 9. For more information, go to www.veteransinwv.com.
