Courses offered at Wayne County Schools helped connect her education to her career. 10 Teen Court Offers Chance At Success The Teen Court program gives juveniles an opportunity to learn from mistakes through volunteering and discipline. contents T he Progress edition is designed to take an in-depth look at Wayne County and where its people, economy, education, health industry and military are going. This year's theme is all about connections because it is rarely possible to make progress or improvements without them. The fabric of the Wayne County community is woven into tight-knit relationships that, when in cooperation and in sync, become a recipe for individual success of each entity. From Peggy Seegars Senior Center offering programs to seniors to Communities in Schools offering second chances to juveniles through the Teen Court program, connections from one group to another improve the quality of life in the community all the way around. Connections in industry have also become a necessity for success. Uchiyama Manufacturing taps into the Wayne County workforce, while agriculture becomes a key driver in the manufacturing industry and the cornerstone for many families. This year's Progress edition is divided to focus on five drivers in the county — education, business and agriculture, health, military and community. And though it is divided, connections are ever-present and thread each section together, much like the community in which we live.
