TRIO programs to welcome participants to Huntington campus Feb. 17

The five TRiO programs at Marshall will be hosting “TRiO Day” Monday, Feb. 17. Participants from the programs will learn more about Marshall and take part in a tour provided by the Office of Recruitment. The Army ROTC will also have the STEM Experience for TRiO participants as well as the university community to enjoy.

All TRIO events will take place in the Campus Christian Center on the Huntington campus, according to Scott Robertson, counselor in the Heart of Appalachia Talent Search (HATS) program. The day will begin with a tour of the campus followed by a presentation from the Office of Recruitment and Student Support Services. Lunch will be provided by the Office of Recruitment.

At 1:30 p.m., a celebration of TRiO Programs will take place in the Christian Center, where President Stephen J. Kopp will address those in attendance. The university community is invited to attend the celebration to learn more about the federally-funded TRiO Programs at Marshall and the impact the programs have on the lives of students. Robertson asks that any Marshall faculty or staff members who are alumni of any of the TRIO programs contact him so that they can be identified.

A small reception will be held during the celebration, Robertson said.
