MURRAY, Ky. — Murray State University and West Kentucky Community and Technical College will co-host a Nonprofit Connections event at the Murray State Paducah Regional Campus on March 5 from 11 a.m to 3 p.m., offering students a chance to meet with nonprofits and to explore potential employment, volunteer and service learning opportunities.

This fair-style event will provide an excellent opportunity for nonprofit representatives to share firsthand information about the needs and issues that drive their missions, while providing details about how interested students can become involved in their important work.

The event will bring together students, faculty and staff from Murray State, WKCTC and area high schools with nonprofit leaders from Paducah and McCracken County and the surrounding area. Through Nonprofit Connections, the Paducah community will become more aware as to the needs in the region, as well as engage in volunteering/employment opportunities and new career pathways. Faculty are encouraged to meet with nonprofit representatives to make connections for class projects or other partnerships.

“We are excited about the partnership on this event between the nonprofit leadership studies program, the Murray State University Paducah Regional Campus and WKCTC,” said Dr. Kelly Rogers, associate professor of nonprofit leadership in the Department of Community Leadership and Human Services, which is co-sponsoring the event. “This event brings together, and gives a voice to, local nonprofits to share information about the great opportunities to serve in the community.”

“This event will allow students in the region to explore area nonprofit agencies as well as expose those agencies to new talent,” said Dan Lavit, executive director of the Murray State University Center for Adult and Regional Education.
