Dr. Guy Sims, Bluefield State College Dean of Students, was a guest speaker during the November 6 Mercer County Schools' Dictionary Project at Sun Valley Elementary School.   Through the Dictionary Project, every third grade student in Mercer County received a dictionary, compliments of a unique collaboration between Bluefield State College, Concord University, and the Bluefield and Princeton Rotary Clubs.

Now in its 13th year, the project has awarded over 5,600 books to Mercer County students for their personal use at home. The project’s partners believe it is a worthwhile investment, according to a press release from the Mercer County Board of Education.
