Stillman Signing

By WVUA Digital Reporter Anneliese Taggart

Stillman College and Young Women Choosing Action are partnering up to develop a multi-purpose facility on the school’s campus.

Thursday morning, a memorandum of understanding was signed at Stillman and fundraising will begin soon. Once constructed, the facility will provide childcare, health care and recreational services to not only Stillman students and faculty but also to residents. The proposed facility would replace King and Williams halls, which are dormitories that are no longer in use.

“YWCA was founded for young women to thrive to create their own future,” said YWCA CEO Elisha Rhodes. “Partnering with (Stillman College President Dr. Cynthia) Warrick and Stillman College also creates an opportunity for us to move forward the legacy of this organization and also bring the resources that this community desperately needs in a time of crisis that we all face in this country.”
