WASHINGTON, D.C. - Sen. Joe Manchin made a personal phone call Wednesday to a Nicholas County first grader after he received a letter that asked for his help.
The letter read:
My name is Sophie Mullins. I live in Craigsville, West Virginia. I am in the first grade at Gauley River Grade School. All we do is work, work, work. I need a break. Can you please help?
In Manchin's call to Sophie, he encouraged her to continue working hard in school because receiving a good education is the best way for all young students to succeed when they grow up.
