The Appalachian School of Law is on a presidential honor roll for community service.
In 2008, ASL continued coaching “Lego Robotics” teams at the Mountain Mission School for underprivileged children. ASL students took part in the Buchanan County Community Christmas Collaborative to bring holiday cheer – clothing, a winter coat and toys – to the children of underprivileged families, and put on a Halloween carnival so local children had a safe place to have fun. ASL also fielded several volunteers for Court Appointed Special Advocates to advocate in court for children in the custody of the Social Services Department.
These efforts earned ASL a place on the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll for exemplary service efforts and service to America’s communities, according to the school’s Web site.
