Southern West Virginia Community College Foundation to Sponsor Live Telethon for Scholarships

The Southern West Virginia Community College Foundation will sponsor a Telethon on Sunday, April 29, 2018, 2:00 PM - 6:00 PM at Southern's Williamson Campus Television Studio. Nate Siggers, the host of "Relate With Nate" which airs on Southern's Channel 17 and Eastern Kentucky Broadcasting, will host the Foundation's Telethon as it reaches out to raise funds for student scholarships to help those in need of financial assistance.

Through the generosity and support of many donors to Southern's Vision 2020, Major Gifts Campaign, the College and Foundation have been able to quadruple the number of scholarships provided to students. More than $145,000.00 in financial assistance has been awarded to approximately 130 students during the 2017-2018 academic year.

The upcoming Telethon, broadcasting live on Sunday, April 29th from 2:00 PM to 6:00 PM, will feature selected performances from throughout Southern's service area by local church choirs and individuals, as well as student testimonials from Southern Foundation scholarship recipients. This is a tremendous opportunity to showcase local talent, while helping students obtain their educational goals.

If you would like to volunteer to help with the production of the Telethon or wish to perform during the Telethon, please contact Ms. Rita Roberson, Director of Campus Operations, at rita.roberson@southernwv.edu or 304-236-7648.
