Parkersburg, W.Va. (April 18, 2023) – West Virginia University at Parkersburg is pleased to announce the return of Take Your Child to Work Day, which is in connection with the National Take Your Sons and Daughters to Work Day.

On Thursday, April 27, 2023, WVUP employees are encouraged to bring their child, or a special child in their life, to celebrate the many career, educational and entertainment events we offer right here at WVUP!

“As a parent, it is always a delight to showcase your workplace and the responsibilities of your job to your family,” said Dr. Torie Jackson, interim president of WVU Parkersburg. “Having an opportunity to engage our children in campus activities allows them a peek into their parents’ work lives and helps promote the fun of WVUP.”

This annual event highlights the college’s support for its employees, their families and all WVUP community members. WVU Parkersburg will host tours and activities geared towards kids ages 6-18 allowing them to explore areas like The Riverhawk Farm, the Criminal Justice Lab, and the nursing department.
