During last week’s State of the State address, Gov. Jim Justice introduced the West Virginia Invests Grant Program to universal applause as the pathway to good-paying jobs and economic growth. It creates a program designed to provide free community college tuition to every high school student who wants to further their education.
The governor credited Senate President Mitch Carmichael, R-Jackson, with the idea for Senate Bill 284, which is designed to eliminate the financial barrier to receiving an education at West Virginia’s community and technical colleges.
