In January several lucky students went to Richmond to represent New River and to lobby for student issues to our area Delegates. According to Public Relations Specialist Joyce Taylor, there were eight students who participated this year.
Those who went with Dr. Jack Lewis and Dr. Mark Rowh on the first trip were:
Angelin Barker, of Pulaski who is studying nursing, Jason Clemons, of Montgomery County who is majoring in information technology, Jordan Kime, of Radford who is studying science and Michael Sweeney, of Floyd County who is a political science major.
Also along for the trip was Delegate Anne B. Crockett-Stark.
On the next trip in February Dr. Rowh and Dr. Lewis, along with Deborah Kennedy who is the enrollment Management Coordinator, took four more students to Richmond.
Miranda Lucia of Christiansburg who is an Economics/Statistics Transfer student,
Carmel Stowers of Blacksburg who is a transfer student in Information Technology,
Christina Davis of Dublin who is a transfer student in Human Services and
Stacy Gibbs of Pulaski who is in the Elementary Education transfer program.
