Who We Are

WE is a group of women from southern West Virginia who were called upon by First Lady Joanne Tomblin in the Spring 2012, to focus our collective interests and energy on improving educational opportunities for the children of our state. Our founding members include women from fields as diverse as education, law, healthcare, and business. WE held an inaugural lunch on September 21, 2012. This event featured Mrs. Tomblin as the keynote speaker. Mrs. Tomblin charged WE with identifying the greatest needs in our public schools and providing the resources to address those needs.

WE represents a crucial part of the future of education in West Virginia. WE is an organization of people who care about the education of our children. We are mission-oriented, we are doers not watchers, participants not bystanders. WE has made a commitment to student achievement and WE is prepared to translate dollars into action.  As a project fund of the Foundation for the Tri-State Community, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, all donations to WE are tax-exempt to the fullest extent of the law.
