The 3rd Annual “Telling Oxford: An Evening of Stories and Songs“—an event that provides support for Ole Miss students in recovery from addiction—is scheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 16, at The Powerhouse.

Tupelo native Adrian Dickey, a longtime favorite singer/songwriter on the Oxford music scene, will share his story and perform. The event includes students and members of the Oxford recovery community who will also share their stories of hope and healing.

The event supports the Collegiate Recovery Community (CRC) at Ole Miss, which will become a part of the William Magee Center for Wellness Education that plans to open on campus in 2019. David Magee, the father of the late William Magee whom the center is named after, is the Telling Oxford master of ceremonies.

Tickets are $25 (or $10 for students with a student ID) and are available at the door. Coffee and desserts are provided, and doors open at 6:30 p.m. with the program beginning at 7 p.m. 

The Ole Miss CRC began in 2009 with a 12-step meeting on campus and weekly meetings with the University Counseling Center staff. The weekly meetings provide support for students’ academic success.

In 2015, the CRC Advisory Board distributed the first CRC Scholarships awarded to students on the basis of being clean and sober and active members of the CRC. Money raised from Telling Oxford will help provide scholarships for students.
