ASA Poster for Print2Marshall is hosting the Appalachian Studies Association annual conference on the Huntington campus March 28 through 30.

One of the program organizers, Dr. Linda Spatig of the College of Education and Professional Development, said approximately 800-1000 people are expected to attend. Anyone can register and attend.

“We have a terrific program lined up and lots of scholarships available for people who need them, including students,” Spatig said. In addition, Marshall students who are not presenters (those who ARE presenters can get scholarships) can attend any conference event free of charge just by using their Marshall IDs.
