Lawson State Assists Jefferson County Storm Site

BIRMINGHAM, AL - In the aftermath of the recent tornadoes and storms, the Lawson State family, including President Perry W. Ward and approximately 100 faculty, staff, and students volunteered on Thursday at Scott Elementary School with relief efforts in devastated Pratt City.

“Our community is our family. Those impacted by the recent storms are people that we know – co-workers, loved ones," said Dr. Ward.  "It is not only our mission but our duty as able bodied individuals to enhance the quality of life for the people in our area. It’s important that we all come together to assist in this lengthy recovery.”

 "Center directors were pleased with the assistance and noted that the Lawson State group had offered the largest team assistance to date," said Geri Albright, director of public relations and community affairs.

 Though Thursday served as just one opportunity to help, members of the Lawson State family expect to continue their participation in emergency shelters and other volunteer sites in the coming months.
