Chesapeake College goes purple Sept. 13
WYE MILLS — As the go purple movement spreads across the Mid-Shore and the Delmarva Peninsula, Chesapeake College also is going purple with an event set from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 13.
“With over 2,000 credit students, 5,000 non-credit students and over 400 faculty and staff representing all five counties we provide a central spot to reach many,” said Lucie Hughes, vice president of Institutional Advancement at the college. “We offer a unique opportunity for all five counties to be in one place and get out the educational messaging.”
Hughes said the college will share educational messages both on its website and on its U.S. Route 50 sign each day. They also plan to create a landing page on the college’s website, with links to each county’s sites and Facebook pages.
The event also includes a take-back component, in partnership with the college’s second-year nursing students, the college’s public safety department and Queen Anne’s County Office of the Sheriff. Naloxone training for some of the college’s faculty and staff also is planned.
