The Worcester County Health Department invited all 8th grade Worcester County Public school students who are transitioning to high school next year, and their parents or guardians to the 8th Grade Transitional Event. The event was held at Shad Landing on May 20, 2021 under the Manokin Pavilion. Since 2011, Worcester County Health Department has hosted an annual Father-Daughter Dinner with the goal of highlighting the relationship between young women and their fathers, or other role models. This year, the invitation list was expanded to include mothers/ mother figures and sons. Parental figures have a powerful impact on many aspects of their child's life in areas such as academic achievement, avoiding teen pregnancy, and being self-confident and self-reliant.
