In 2020, you defined West Virginia Strong.

This has been a year unlike any other—unprecedented, unparalleled, challenging—but West Virginia has risen up to the challenge. With vaccines becoming available, there is cause for cautious optimism for the days ahead. To get here, and through the days ahead, it would not be possible without the incredible work of those who helped keep our University, our state, and our country moving.

As we head into 2021, we recognize the heroic efforts of every person who helped us provide education, provide care, and provide hope for West Virginians. From the facilities staff who keep the buildings operating, to those who kept us safe in our facilities, to the frontline workers who give dignity, care, and respect to so many patients. Thank you. May we continue that dedication and service into the next year.
