WASHINGTON, D.C. — Gauley River first-grader Sophie Mullins says all she does is “work, work, work” at school so she sent a letter to U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin asking for relief.
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?
The senator responded with a phone call Wednesday afternoon. Manchin congratulated Sophie on her work effort and urged her to keep studying hard.
