Letter to the editor: Thanks for PR-B's Inspire Trades program

I'd like to say "kudos" to Nathan Sauvageau and Matt and Jessie Nornberg along with the Pine River-Backus trades program for developing this new program and running with it with the same passion they each have for their personal lives and personal businesses.

Not everyone needs nor wants to go to college. This is the direction education needs to go for the future. Helping young people understand work ethics, business skills and management, teamwork, respect for supervision, learning from those more experienced, earning their place in the workforce and so many more skills and characteristics will not only better themselves but better their communities and the world around them.

Thank you, Nate, Matt and Jessie and the PR-B Schools.

Penny Olson,

Backus
