Southern Plans Anniversary Celebration
Southern West Virginia Community and Technical College hits a milestone this year, and the local college plans on kicking things off in grand style on Monday, September 13th.
Southern is kicking off a year-long celebration with a special meeting and press conference in the Savas Kostas Performing Arts Center on Monday, September 13th at 11am. President Dr. Pam L. Alderman says several big announcements that affect the school’s students, employees, and the local community will be made at that time.
It’s no secret that the school has been working on re-branding the institution with a new logo, colors, and messaging. The front sign near the road entrance on the Logan campus has been covered with tarps and ropes indicating a change is coming. The branding reveal is expected to be taking place in that meeting.
“Several of us have been keeping secrets,” Alderman said. “Frankly, we’ve been waiting on approval for several things before the official announcements could be made. We are extremely excited to finally share this information with everyone.”
Students, faculty, and staff are invited to attend. There will be giveaways for everyone in attendance. “We want to give ownership of the new branding to folks,” Director of Communications Bill France said. “We have some nice items that we will be passing out.”
“We plan on making this more than just a typical announcement,” Alderman said. “We are celebrating. So expect fun, surprises and of course cake! We look forward to seeing everyone there.”
After the September 13th meeting in Logan, school officials plan to bring the party to its other campuses as well. “We will be bringing cake and freebies to our other campuses in the near future,” Alderman said. “This celebration is for all our campuses.”
