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.
