We, too, are Appalachia

GLENVILLE, W.Va. – On Thursday, Nov. 15 Jessica Lilly will visit Glenville State College as a part of the ongoing “We, too, are Appalachia” project.

The series of performances and presentations, made possible by Glenville State College and the West Virginia Humanities Council, are an exploration of identity and place regarding rural West Virginia.

Lilly covers southern West Virginia for West Virginia Public Broadcasting and is the host and co-producer of Inside Appalachia. She can also be heard weekdays on West Virginia Morning, WVPB’s daily radio news program.

Lilly graduated from Concord University in 2007, where she was named Concord University’s Reporter of the Year and Producer of the Year.

Concord chose her as their Alumnus of the Year in 2015. She was instrumental in launching Concord’s first FM radio station, WVCU-LP FM in 2015. Born in Bluefield, West Virginia, she grew up in the coalfields of Wyoming County.

The event is free and open to the public and will take place beginning at 1:30 p.m. at The Pioneer Stage, GSC’s Bluegrass Music Education Center located at 10 East Main Street in Downtown Glenville.

The “We, too, are Appalachia” project is presented with financial assistance from the West Virginia Humanities Council, a state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Any views, findings, conclusions, or recommendations do not necessarily represent those of the West Virginia Humanities Council or the National Endowment for the Humanities.
