School honors community members for their service

Posted:

BECKLEY, W. Va (WVVA)-- The University of Charleston's Beckley Campus is honoring members of the Beckley community for their good works.

The school teamed up with the Beckley Area Alumni Council to induct five community members into the hall of achievement. Many of them are alumni.

Those honored include Delegate Linda Sumner ()the Amanda Marcella Adkins Spirit Award), Sherrie Hunter (the Community Service Award), Frank Wood (the Career Achievement Award), Daniel Bickey (Distinguished Service Award), and Mona Wiseman (Distinguished Friend Award). 

UC reps say they're all role models for current students.

"These inductees are great examples for our students," said Director of Alumni and Parent Relations Bridgette Borst. "[Our students can] recognize these inductees as leaders and say, 'Hey, that could be me one day.'"

These inductees include others already in the hall of achievement, including Senator Robert C. Byrd and Governor Hulett C. Smith.
