West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine
Amid the opening days of classes at WVSOM, first- and second-year students set aside their textbooks to clean, paint, perform yardwork and help with other physical labor during the school’s Day of Service, a program hosted in partnership with the United Way of the Greenbrier Valley. Students helped beautify Greenbrier River Trail and Greenbrier State Forest; cleaned bleachers, painted fences and raked leaves at the grounds of the State Fair of West Virginia; assisted with weeding at Montwell Commons; aided with cleaning at area schools; washed cars at Gateway Industries; sorted books at Greenbrier County Public Library; and walked dogs at the Greenbrier Humane Society, among many other tasks. In all, 204 students, nine faculty members and two graduate teaching assistants volunteered at 17 sites in Greenbrier County.
