Introducing: Kyle Hunter

By Tammy Hunter, Kyle's mother

My five-year-old son, Kyle, is in Beth MacCombs' preschool class at Beacon.

I was born and grew up in Athens and have always known Beacon was there. I knew that it was for students with special needs, but I had never had any personal experience with it and, to be honest, didn't fully understand what the school was like or what they did there. Now that Kyle is in his second year of preschool, I feel blessed that such a wonderful place is so accessible right here in our own community.

Athens On Demand Transit

Athens On Demand Transit now available to aid people in need of accessible transportation

For people without a vehicle, finding available transportation in Athens County can be difficult. Finding accessible transportation is even more problematic. Coordination and collaboration between agencies, government officials, and local community members can be a solution to helping people in need of specialized transportation get to work, medical appointments, social services, leisure activities and shopping.
