A local college has earned an award for its work in the community.
West Virginia Campus Compact has named Alderson-Broaddus College the winner of its Engaged Campus Award.
It earned the honor after building up its outreach with places like the Code Blue Youth Center in Philippi.
A-B said it's come a long way in a short time to receive such an award.
"it just is so exciting for Alderson-Broaddus to win something like that, because three or four years ago, we weren't even anywhere close to winning any awards for our community involvement, so that fact that we're being recognized for our efforts is really exciting," said Sarah Geist, campus outreach coordinator.
As part of that outreach, A-B students and staff will spend a weekend in early April working on projects around the community.
