Members of the CAWV Workforce Development Task Force are currently working with the general and his staff on expanding construction-related curriculum at the guard’s facilities at Camp Dawson in Kingwood and at the former Hobet mine site in Boone County. General Hoyer will share with CAWV his actions goals to rebuild West Virginia to create a skilled and qualified workforce for the construction industry.
