Southern goes purple for Recovery Day

Last week, staff from all campuses of Southern West Virginia Community and Technical College, showed their support of “Collegiate Recovery Day” by wearing purple.

The West Virginia Collegiate Recovery Network (WV CRN), a program of the Marshall University Research Corporation’s Alliance for the Economic Development of Southern West Virginia. WV CRN collaborated with schools and organizations across the state to celebrate National Collegiate Recovery Day on Thursday, April 15.

“It is important for us to do more for our students facing substance abuse and mental health challenges,” said Dr. Pamela Alderman, President of Southern. “We are proud to be partnering with a network of collegiate professionals who are working together to increase access to recovery programs in support of students’ health and educational success.”

“On Collegiate Recovery Day, we recommit ourselves to the critical mission of making sure our students have the support they need to complete their college education and secure a brighter future for themselves and their families,” Alderman said.
