The inaugural Governor’s School for Tourism (GST) will launch in the summer of 2024. GST will provide selected 9th and 10th grade students with opportunities to tour West Virginia for 10 days, learning about the tourism and hospitality sectors of our economy through hands-on experiences and introducing a wide variety of career paths in one of the state’s fastest-growing industries. Students will stay at multiple state park lodges and visit historical and other significant landmarks across Almost Heaven. This exciting experience is being planned as a collaboration between the West Virginia Department of Tourism, West Virginia University, and the West Virginia Department of Education. https://wvde.us/gov-schools/tourism/
