Internship

Shepherd University

The West Virginia Channel will broadcast an energy symposium this weekend that was part of the inauguration of Shepherd University President Mary J.C. Hendrix.

The symposium was held earlier this spring, and it brought together leaders in renewable energy fields to discuss ways a university like Shepherd can strengthen opportunities for West Virginia students to find careers in energy.

Shepherd University held a symposium on renewable energy Friday as part of the inauguration of the school’s 16th president, Dr. Mary Hendrix. The symposium featured three speakers Hendrix referred to as “all-star experts” in energy.
