2017 Summer Tour: Goal! WVU reinvigorates its land-grant mission in McDowell County

June 16, 2017

It was intended to be a one-day youth soccer clinic in southern West Virginia. But before it was over, a 220-mile trip from Morgantown to Welch became much more than just kicks for WVU athletes, students and leaders.

Since returning to WVU in 2014, President Gee has visited McDowell County each year.

“There's no place that I have visited in the three-and-half years I've been at the University that means more in terms of that confluence of opportunity and spirit and hope and inspiration than this place right here,” Gee said.
