Stay Out Stay Alive

Union Local
Elementary School
Belmont County, Ohio

On April 12, 2005, Mike Snyder of MSHA's Approval and Certification Center provided a 'stay Out Stay Alive´┐Ż presentation at the Union Local Elementary School located in Belmont County, Ohio. The students shown in the photo are from Mr. Turvey and Ms. Smolenak's fifth grade class. Sam Haverty was "Mike's Miner Buddy" and donned his underground gear to demonstrate to the class just some of the equipment a miner has to carry to work underground. The class also examined various rocks and minerals through a hands on exercise and did some prospecting on the kids section of MSHA's homepage.
