We're fortunate here in the Valley to have a President and First Lady who take an active interest in the well-being of our students. An event set for tonight is just one example.
At 7 p.m. in the C.W. Pettigrew Center, First Lady Betty Rivers will host an evening for Lady Wildcats. She and several campus notables, including Police Chief Brenda Jones and Director of Health Services JoAnn Nobles, will conduct open, honest discussions about health, safety, and emotional well-being.
The Sip-n-Chat is a semi-annual event designed to help the young women on Fort Valley State University's campus prepare for their futures in ways that classes might not. If college is a student's "home away from home," this event is like sitting down with "mom away from home."
