WVOTA News

Thank you to Kelley Ware, past secretary of WVOTA. Kelley has decided to step away from the role of secretary in order to bring more occupational balance to her life -- Kelley will be active in transitioning the role to our new incoming secretary. Per our bylaws, when a position is vacated, the board will appoint an interim to fill the position until the next election cycle. The members of the board acknowledge the duties of the secretary have expanded over the years. To that end, two members have been appointed to fill this important position. We are pleased to announce Jacob Greenfield will be serving as Corresponding Secretary and Amy Wix will serve as Social Secretary. We're up to some exciting work at WVOTA -- if you are interested in volunteering or being more involved in small tasks or ready for more leadership in the state, we want to hear from you!

MORGANTOWN, W.Va (WDTV) - West Virginia University occupational therapy students recently developed a device for a 10-year-old boy from Pennsylvania, who has difficulty using his arms and hands. 

The video of him using this got hundreds of retweets and thousands of likes on Twitter.

Eli Holp doesn't let this disability stop him from doing the things he loves. He was born with the disability that limits the use of his hands and arms.
