'Clean Home Alabama' Nov. 4-7
October 14, 2019
LBW Community College in Andalusia is participating in the Alabama Community College System’s “Clean Home Alabama” initiative in support of Alabama’s bicentennial by adopting a mile of roadway beginning Nov. 4-7, 2019.
“LBW will participate by adopting a mile section of U.S. 84 adjacent to the Andalusia campus and the LBWCC Nature Trail through the ALPALS (Alabama People Against a Littered State) organization,” said LBWCC Dean of Student Affairs Jason Jessie.
Jessie and Peggy Linton, dean of instruction, are coordinating the event for the College.
“Our kick-off project will take place each afternoon during the week of Nov. 4-7 with employee and student volunteers,” he said. “If anyone in the community wishes to help with this initiative, please get in touch with us as soon as possible so we can process releases in time.”
The initiative, announced by ACCS Chancellor Jimmy Baker, is a statewide college-led effort to help beautify the state’s natural landscapes, growing infrastructure, and expanding communities. The mission is to continue serving communities both inside and outside campus walls, according to Baker.
“Community is so much a part of what our colleges do each day that it’s even in our name,” Baker said. “Alabama’s community colleges are located within every region of the state, which means we are perfectly positioned to organize and execute an effort of this magnitude to help maintain ‘Alabama the Beautiful’ during our state’s bicentennial year.”
The “Clean Home Alabama” initiative runs statewide Nov. 1-11, 2019. For more information about LBWCC’s involvement, contact Jessie at 334-881-2245 or Linton at 334-493-5337.
