y t f Summer s County Profile ::::::::::::: ::: : ============================================ ,:::: Everette G. Crawford By Sheri Benson Everette G. Crawford hasn't al- ways lived in Summers County. Born in Monroe County, in the town of Ballard, he enjoyed fishing and hunting and horseback riding. Be- fore growing from boyhood, against his displeasure, he moved to town. There he lived with his parents, Willie Norah Crawford and George R.C. Crawford and his younger brother, Francis. They are all gone, now, and he alone reminisces times past. Included is his closest friend and school buddy, Theodore Bailey, visited by memory. Everette attended Hinton Ele- mentary and then Lincoln High School as a child. WV State College readied him for his future. That future became ruling as principal at Lincoln High, sitting in =the room', the one with three front windows observing all goings on. He loved his job, loved the students. =I've been proud of so many of them, time and ... again, going out and doing well m the world.  he said. =I've always had an interest in athletics -- football, basketball; I played college football at WV State College." His deceased wife, Naomi (Dan- dridgo) Crawford was a teacher at the school where he worked. =She came in from Parkersburg," he said. =i miss her." They raised two boys, Theodore and Everette, now living in Washington along with two grand- children. =I've seen economic conditions change a lot in Hinton,  he said. =I'd like to see more work and more col- ored teachers in the schools." Everette G. Crawford is a mem- ber of the Retired Teacher's Associa- tion. He's declinedmembership into other organizations because =I'm not caring for such things much." During conversations, his soft brown eyes and kind face reflect his full attention on what's being said. Pausing, he will carefully consider his words before speaking. From his front porch chair, he daily lives, fo- cusing his attention on the school directly across the street. Gazing easily into the past, he glimpses students long since gone entering and leaving the large double doors of Lincoln High. The school bell rings. Vibrant young girls and boys laugh, chatter and suddenly hush to a teacher's reminding voice. The prin- cipal, Everette G. Crawford still misses nothing, sees all. Only the walk to work has ceased, for him. If you have a profile story, write for an interview to: Sheri Benson, Hinton News, P.O. Box 1000, Hin- ton, WV 25951. Include your name and phone number.

Aug. 13, 1991 Hinton News - 7 Host Families Sought For Student Exchange Program James Ward of Hinton, Local Coordinator for the Academic Year in America high school exchange program, is presently interviewing families in this part of W.Va. to host a foreign exchange student. The cross cultural learning program places teenagers from Europe, Asia and Latin America with American fami- lies for a mester or school year. W.Va. has been host to dozens of foreign students this year. =Spring time is the most exciting time of the program year for these students," says Ward. "They love the prom, yearbooks and class rings." Customs like these, which are part of any' American teenager's experience, are new and different for teens from abroad. The program also gives American thmilies the chance to learn about a. foreign culture. Exchange students bring their holiday customs, their native language, and the special dishes of their homelands into their American homes. =It's like a trip abroad without ever leaving home," notes Ward. =These interesting young ambassadors soon win the hearts of their hosts. They arrive as strangers and become 'sons' and 'daughters' in their American fami- lies. Next year's participants, chosen from hundreds of applicants, will arrive in W.Va. in Aug. They all speak English, are covered by full medical insurance, and have their own spending money. Host families receive a travel scholarship, worth up to $800 off the cost of an AIFS study/travel abroad program. Families interested in choosing a boy or girl to host for the 91/92 school year should contact Ward at 304- 466-0936 to set up an interview, or call regional director Tracey Sonn at (800_ 322-4678.
