Teaching, Learning and Living in Appalachian Ohio
Faculty, staff, students and community members are invited to join the Appalachian Learning Community (ALC) at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 9, in the Friends of the Library Room in Alden for a presentation by Bill Price, environmental justice coordinator for the Sierra Club in Central Appalachia.
Faculty and staff from across the university developed the ALC several years ago to raise awareness, their own and others, about what it means to be teaching, learning and living in Appalachian Ohio.
This year a series of speakers will bring to campus their vital perspectives on health, culture, education and the environment.
Price will speak on the Injustice of Coal and its Impacts on Appalachian Communities. His presentation will include information about mountain top removal, the cycle of coal, coal’s impacts on Appalachian communities, as well as, the current impacts of present and future power plants.
Bill was greatly affected by mountain top removal in his home town of Dorothy, W.Va. This led him to become an activist and educator.
