Community Service

Pierpont takes great pride in its community, and as a local community college, we understand the importance of giving back to the community members that we serve. That is why Pierpont has launched Pierpont Serves.

Pierpont Serves is an initiative that gives members of the Pierpont Pride the avenues to give back to the communities of North Central West Virginia.

Pierpont Serves: Day of Service (February 2)

On Friday, February 2, Pierpont is holding an additional Day of Service. We encourage all to join us in a day of volunteering and serving our community and giving back to those who need it most. 

“Everybody can be great…because anybody can serve.You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love”.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
