Welcome Back Students

Welcome Students To Southern WV Colleges, Universities
Southern West Virginia Education Gateway

Through the BRCCC Education Committee we continue to work with our Educational Institution Members to determine how our businesses can best be involved in education in our communities. The committee meets monthly to discuss education topics such as; public school assessment and evaluation processes, preparedness of students, drop out rates and attendance, simulated workplace programs, higher education funding, technology integration, professional development for educators, teacher recruitment, counseling for students and more. We understand the importance of being an educational hub area that attracts students from around the world to West Virginia. Quality education is vital to our community at all levels. We're training our citizens and workforce for the future.

Looking Forward to Seeing You in Beckley

Scouts Working In Our Communities During #Jambo2017

Boy Scouts attending the National Jamboree have been working in our West Virginia communities on their Day of Service Projects. As they did during the first Jamboree at the Summit, Scouts again this time went out into our West Virginia communities to help many groups and organizations complete service projects of many kinds. Scouts were also introduced to all the West Virginia has to offer including area attractions, historical sites and our people across the State. We appreciate their time, effort and enthusiasm to work and learn during one of the most exciting adventures of their Scout Life.

Thank You Scouts for all you've done for West Virginia! Looking for seeing you during the next Jamboree.

Thank You Citizens Conservation Corps of West Virginia
Citizens Conservation Corps of West Virginia again coordinated the 2017 Initiative coinciding with the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) National Scout Jamboree 2017 at the Summit Bechtel Reserve.  This time, Citizens Conservation Corps (CCC) worked with community leaders to develop projects in all 55 WV Counties.
