Nu Zeta Chi Participates in The Adopt-A-Highway Program

Athens, W.Va. - Ten volunteers from Concord University’s local sorority Nu Zeta Chi completed a litter cleanup for the Adopt-A-Highway Program. The litter cleanup of Athens Road from Route 14, Melrose Square to Route 104, Crossroads was completed on December 12, 2005. The volunteers worked three hours to pick up the 15 35-pound bags of trash.

Volunteers who participated were: Sarah Jane Rhodes, Montgomery; Crystal Roberts, Webster Springs; Megan Harvey, Princeton; Jordan McMillion, Lewisburg; Krista King, Sinks Grove; Kristin Cook, Beth Lucas, and Julie Delmoro, Shady Spring; Kim Waugh, Covington, Va.; and Sarah Pollock, Clarksburg.

Nu Zeta Chi has been a member of the Adopt-A-Highway program since December 1, 2005. The program is a joint effort of the West Virginia Division of Highways and Department of Natural Resources. Since the program began in 1988, volunteers have removed millions of pounds of litter from West Virginia highways. Nu Zeta Chi adopted a stretch of highway to become more involved with the community.
