Bishop State Community College is one of 24 community colleges across the state that is participating in the Alabama Community College System’s Clean Home Alabama initiative. Governor Kay Ivey signed the official proclamation on Monday, September 16, 2019. Alabama’s community colleges are partnering with residents and community organizations in every county of the state for this college-led effort to help beautify the state’s natural landscapes, growing infrastructure, and expanding communities. In 2019, Clean Home Alabama will take place on November 1-11. Bishop State is partnering with Alabama People Against a Littered State (ALPALS) to participate in its Adopt-A-Mile Program. The college has committed to keeping Highway 90 between mile markers 35 to 36 litter free for one year! The community kick-off clean up will be Friday, November 1, 2019, from 9 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. Those who would like to participate can join us for an interest meeting on Friday, October 18, 2019, at 10 a.m. on the Main campus in the Oliver H. Delchamps Student Life Complex Theater. During this meeting, staff, students, community leaders, and community stakeholders will discuss projects to be included during this year-long cleanup and beautification initiative. Clean Home Alabama was established by Alabama Community College Chancellor Jimmy H. Baker, with the mission of continuing to serve communities both inside and outside of campus walls. “Community is so much a part of what our colleges do each day that it’s even in our name,” Baker said. “Alabama’s community colleges are located within every region of the state, which means we are perfectly positioned to organize and execute an effort of this magnitude to help maintain ‘Alabama the Beautiful’ during our state’s bicentennial year.” If you are interested in partnering with us as we work to “Clean Home Alabama”, please contact Dr. Victoria Perry at (251) 405-7088 or Published Tuesday, September 24, 2019
