WVNCC Community Service Outstanding

The Intelligencer / Wheeling News-Register

Here in the Ohio Valley we are blessed with several colleges and universities where encouraging community service is a priority. One of them, West Virginia Northern Community College, has established quite a record for doing so.

WVNCC, with campuses in Wheeling, Weirton and New Martinsville, once again has been named to the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll. The local institution is the only two-year college in West Virginia to receive the honor.

This is not the first time, either. It happens to be the sixth straight year WVNCC has been recognized by the president’s honor roll.

In announcing the honor, WVNCC listed some of the community service activities involving its staff, faculty and students. It is a very impressive record. For example, WVNCC’s involvement in the Military Mail Call program resulted in more than 18,000 letters being written to military personnel.

And here’s another of our favorites: Last Christmas, WVNCC’s "Secret Santa" program provided gifts to more than 200 children of students in need.

Good for all involved! Encouraging and facilitating community service is an important role of higher education.
