West Virginia University at
Jackson County Center celebrating addition of an administrative and technology facility.
CONTACT: Pam Braden, director of Jackson County Center, 304-372-6992.
The Jackson County Center of West Virginia University at Parkersburg began in 1974 with two classes on a stage at Ripley High School. Today more than 800 students from Jackson, Roane, Mason, Kanawha and Wood counties attend the Center at 105 Academy Drive, Ripley.
In response to the Centerís growth, WVU Parkersburg has purchased a building adjacent to JCC to renovate and house administrative and technology operations. The building acquisition was made possible by a $500,000 legislative appropriation secured by State Senator Oshel Craigo.
An "Expanding Our Education" celebration, open to the public, will be held at 5:30 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 23, in the lobby of the Center. Among those participating in the celebration will be David C. Hardesty Jr., president of West Virginia University; Erik Bitterbaum, president of WVU Parkersburg, and State Senators Craigo and Karen Facemeyer.
A reception will follow a short program and a "key exchange" ceremony.
