The UVa-Wise Theater Department presents their adaptation of “Top Girls” as their second production of the season. This is a cultural activity credit event.
Free to UVa-Wise students & employees / $5 for public
Synopsis of “Top Girls” by Caryl Churchill – Marlene has been promoted to managing director of a London employment agency and is celebrating. The symbolic luncheon is attended by women in legend or history who offer perspectives on maternity and ambition. In a time warp, these ladies are also her co-workers, clients, and relatives. Marlene, like her famous guests, has had to pay a price to ascend from proletarian roots to the executive suite: she has become, figuratively speaking, a male oppressor, and even coaches female clients on adopting odious male traits.
CVC History Night is an annual celebration of the Department of History and Philosophy to honor retired faculty Bill Maxwell and Glenn Blackburn, and the late Buck Henson and Stan Willis.

Crowder American Prodigal Tour with special guest Jimi Cravity and introducing The Young Escape.
Crowder originally hails from Texarkana, TX where he honed his skills as a musician. Just as life sometimes does, Crowder says about his hometown, “you can stand there with one foot on one side of the line and one foot on the other and be in two states at the same time. I’ve stood right there, with my feet on either side of the divide, and you know what? I couldn’t feel a thing….as I grew up, the Prodigal story never really evolved or developed much more nuance than how I first heard it in Sunday school. Seemed like a prodigal was someone who left home and acted out in rebellious ways until thoroughly depleting any and all means of acting out in rebellious ways, at which point the prodigal returns home to a welcoming, ever loving father who is running toward him with open arms, party in tow. Which is pretty darn beautiful. But I think the real story, the one worthy of an italicized title designating the start of a new allegorical tale as told by the Son of God in the middle of a gospel, The Parable of the Prodigal Son, is way more indicting than just calling out a rebel. Turns out the word ‘prodigal’ is an adjective meaning ‘lavish’. At the very beginning of the story, which may be the most puissant, the father bestows his inheritance on both of his sons. Both are lavished upon by the father. To find our place on this planet, here in such a land of blessing, what shall we do with what has been placed upon us?” Deciding on a solo career, Crowder eventually moved to Atlanta, GA a few years ago to fulfill his dream of entertaining others. Crowder’s American Prodigal Tour kicks off in July and his last stop winds up in Wise, VA on November 16 at the Prior Center.Ticket Prices:

Five Cavaliers finished in double-figure scoring, led by Bianca Lockamy who came off the bench to net a team-high 13 points. Lockamy did most of her damage at the free throw line where she went 7-for-8 to aid her team to a 32-for-44 showing at the stripe.

The post “Agile vs. Waterfall: Application Development Methodologies” appeared first on UVa-Wise.
UVa-Wise partnered with law enforcement, mental health leaders, state officials and others Wednesday to sponsor a summit designed to help the region combat the opioid abuse in the region.
The event, “Taking Our Communities Back: Synthetic Narcotic and Opioid Abuse Prevention Summit,” was held at the Southwest Virginia Higher Education Center in Abingdon. The summit drew law enforcement from as far away as Virginia Beach. Officials from various state agencies and mental health professionals attended as well.
UVa-Wise Chancellor Donna Henry welcomed the nearly 300 people to the summit. She said the College is committed to the region, and the summit would highlight the great work many in Southwest Virginia are doing to address the serious opioid challenge.
Delegate Todd Pillion, who received the Virginia Rural Health Lawmaker of the Year award Wednesday for his legislative work in the Virginia General Assembly, said addressing the opioid crisis will be a priority again in Richmond this legislative session. He said opioid addiction is destroying communities, but Virginia is becoming a leader in addressing the problem.
“We will remain vigilant,” he said.
Chad Napier, the Prevention and Education Coordinator for Appalachia High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area in West Virginia and Virginia, urged those attending to work together in the opioid fight.
“We are in the middle of an epidemic,” he said. “We have got to work together if we are going to make a difference.”
While law enforcement will always be key, Napier said addressing the reason people use the substances must also be a part of the mix. He outlined several successful programs that focus on helping children, helping addicts recover, and apps that help law enforcement monitor and predict where drug overdoses and deaths occur.
Those attending also had an opportunity to network and discuss what is working and what can additionally be done to combat the crisis. The Healthy Appalachia Institute, UVa-Wise Office of Economic Development and Engagement, and UVa-Wise were among the summit sponsors.
