Thomas B. Dunn Leadership Academy Held at WV Wesleyan

Posted: Updated:

Nearly 40 students from across the state are at West Virginia Wesleyan for the three-day Thomas B. Dunn Leadership Academy.

Students have toured different facilities in the area, from coal mines to gas pads.

Organizers said they want students and the public to see what jobs are available in the industry and how it's changing.

"The people that come out on location to steer the well and make us drill horizontally, no one heard of that 10, 15 years ago. There are jobs today that didn't exist ten years ago, and I'm sure that there's going to be jobs ten years from now that don't exist today," said Dennis Xander, of IOGA.

The camp will wrap up Thursday.
