All recent West Virginia high school graduates, have been automatically accepted into their local community and technical college. "Our high school graduates are the future of West Virginia. They embody our hopes and dreams for our beloved state. West Virginia's community and technical colleges want them to know they have a future here," said Chancellor Sarah Tucker.

The result is an affordable education leading to jobs that keep young people in West Virginia.
