They touched on the exciting projects unfolding in their community. Upper Kanawha Valley is in on the move with such initiatives as: KVC purchasing the former WVU Tech facilities, Bridgevalley continuing to offer top-notch vocational training, YMCA rededicating and opening the former Baisi Center in an 88,000 square foot community and athletic center, police force growth, and many others.

We also talked with Jennifer Lanham, Innkeeper at the Glen Ferris Inn. Jennifer has returned to her home state after spending time in Florida and is relatively new in her role as Innkeeper. She spoke excitedly about her plans for Glen Ferris Inn. She is working closely with officials from West Virginia, Kanawha & Fayette Counties along with local chambers to reinvigorate the operations at the Inn. She spoke so proudly of the staff, the restaurant, and the overall experience guests receive from staying in one of the oldest Inns in WV.
