SHEPHERDSTOWN, WV — Shepherd University and Follett Higher Education hosted a ribbon cutting and celebration of Shepherd’s newly-renovated bookstore on September 25. Follett took over management of the bookstore in March. Over the summer, Follett renovated the space and brought in new merchandise.
“Follett’s involvement in the bookstore is really special,” said Greg Kirby, Follett regional manager for sales and operations and a Shepherd alumnus. “We offer savings for the students with our robust rental program, along with digital offerings and Shepherd apparel and gifts.”
