West Virginia University at Parkersburg’s student Peer Coaches are hosting a Christmas tree lighting to celebrate the season and begin collecting donations for the Humane Society of Parkersburg. The event, “A Doggone Meowy Christmas,” kicks off Thursday, Nov. 10 from 9 to 9:30 a.m. in the college’s student lounge.

Peer Coaches assist student with social and academic integration with the goal of increasing student success.
“We hope that this event brings faculty, staff, students and the community closer together while supporting a great cause,” said Peer Coach Paige Flanigan.
