Whereas, Those twenty-one to forty-five years of age in West Virginia include more than 600,000 of our State's population and represent our State's future base of workers, dreamers, innovators, educators, entrepreneurs, leaders and most importantly our hope for a successful future; and
Whereas, These young leaders are not just the future of our state, but the rising leaders of today who will make it possible for West Virginia to compete successfully with the world; and
Whereas, By working to make our State attractive for young talent, it is possible to prevent the historic "brain drain" from continuing and build a strong future for our State to become a global leader; therefore, be it
