Walk for Awareness Held Sept. 6 at Appalachian

BOONE–“Can You Hear Me Now? We’re Clear, No Static” is the theme for this year’s Walk for Awareness, an event to raise awareness regarding assault. The theme is to remind members of the campus community of the need to communicate with others about issues regarding violence and sexual assault.

Members of the Appalachian State University and Watauga County communities are invited to gather on Tuesday, Sept. 6, at 9 p.m. on Appalachian’s Sanford Mall to begin the silent walk through campus. The walk will cross Rivers Street and end at Kidd Brewer Stadium.

Speakers for the evening are Martha McCaughey, director of Women’s Studies at Appalachian, and a representative from the university’s Counseling and Psychological Services Center and the student body.

The Walk for Awareness began in 1989 following the abduction and murder of university employee Jeni Gray. It has since evolved into a memorial to Gray and a reminder to campus and community members to always be aware of their personal safety.

The Walk for Awareness is supported by the Appalachian Parents Association and University Highlands.
