Forensic science center receives award
HUNTINGTON -- The Marshall University Forensic Science Center has been named as a recipient of the 2014 Visionary Voice Award, a national award honoring individuals and organizations throughout the country doing outstanding work to end sexual violence in their communities.
The National Sexual Violence Resource Center sponsors the Visionary Voice Award in conjunction with Sexual Assault Awareness Month each April. Nominees are selected by state, tribal or territory anti-sexual violence coalitions.
The award was presented April 9 to Dr. Terry W. Fenger, director of Marshall's Forensic Science Center, and Jason Chute, DNA Technical Leader, at the 14th Annual Statewide West Virginia Sexual Assault and Stalking Symposium at the Stonewall Resort in Roanoke, W.Va.
The West Virginia Foundation for Rape Information and Services (FRIS) nominated Marshall's Forensic Science Center for the award in recognition of its outreach projects and contributions in support of victim assistance and addressing sexual violence in West Virginia and its local communities.
