Anthony Jones, a senior at Warrenton High School, is getting some hands-on learning, thanks to the support and assistance of Bikes and Beyond manager Scott Lee.
Jones is part of a program called Youth Transition, which is funded through Oregon's Vocational Rehabilitation Department and local school districts. He travels to Bikes and Beyond once a week with Catherine Anderson, the Youth Transition Specialist for Warrenton and Seaside High Schools, and is using his bike to work and learn on. Lee is assisting as needed.
The young man's goal is to learn about bicycle repair and maintenance. He hopes to perhaps become a bicycle mechanic in the future. Anderson said she is grateful that Bikes and Beyond has given Jones this opportunity and is supporting local high school students. She hopes other businesses will help, too.
