Welcoming new way to explore Beckley WV



Our community took a ride to Downtown Beckley for the Grand Opening Open House & Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for the new Beckley Welcome Center - Information & Volunteer Hub / Bike Share & Rentals

Located on Prince Street at the Robert C Byrd Drive Intersection (across for McDonald's) the new Hub Center will operate as a welcoming place to greet visitors to our area with information and soon bike rental opportunities for exploring our area along the adjacent McManus Trail.

BECKLEY, W.Va. — A ribbon-cutting ceremony and open house took place in Beckley on Friday for the grand opening of the city’s new visitor center and bike sharing service.

The site on the corner of West Prince Street and Robert C. Byrd Drive originally was a Studebaker shop in the 1930’s and had been vacant for several years.



In addition to information and brochures about the Beckley area, the facility will provide a bike rental hub, beginning next spring, for visitors and residents who want to ride nearby McManus Trail, which has an access point directly across the street from the welcome center.

Mayor Rob Rappold said the opening of the center goes hand in hand with the city’s ongoing downtown revitalization effort, which includes the recent opening of a state-of-the-art police headquarters and construction work currently taking place at a nearby vacant lot that, over the years, has become known as “the hole.”

“Our Board of Public Works did a beautiful job. We totally rewired the building to make it safe, and it’s ADA (Americans with Disablities) compliant,” Rappold told MetroNews. “I wish I could take credit for it but this is (Beckley Welcome Center Volunteer Director) Vickie Webb’s vision. All the colors and all the decorations that you see were because of her efforts.”



For the time being, the center will be staffed by community volunteers but Rappold said a city employee may be part of the mix by next spring, when the number of visitors and the frequency of bike rentals for the trail are expected to increase.



The access street adjacent to the property has been renamed Naff Lane, in honor of the building’s original owner.

Among those partnering in the development and operation of the welcome center are the Downtown Beckley Business Association, the New River Gorge Regional Development Authority, Active Southern WV, the Beckley Art Center, Visit WV and Piney Creek Watershed.

High School Business Students
Open Businesses Across West Virginia



Business Students from Independence, Liberty, Shady Spring and Woodrow Wilson High Schools combined together to build businesses - actually build a business from nothing to a store replica in just four hours in the High School Business Symposium.

Held at Academy of Careers & Technology each year, the Symposium is organized for High School students to learn more about the process of running a business and developing a new one. Students compete through a fast-paced workshop designed to introduce them to marketing, finances, teamwork and problem solving.



Beckley-Raleigh County Chamber of Commerce member business representatives act as the “Board of Directors” (Judges) through the business campaign development. Students are advised, critiqued and awarded through the stages of the process as they develop a complete business and marketing plan.

This Fall Session of the Symposium featured a new business concept theme different than those from previous years. Organizers wanted to see what ideas would come from a focus on coming up with an idea for a business that would be located in one of West Virginia’s tourism regions and that would benefit that area of the state. Some of the business ideas included a watercraft customizing business in Summersville, a Harpers Ferry Museum, a Morgantown Blue Lot Food Truck and Apparel Shop, a Bobsled riding park and more



We appreciate partnerships through our Education Committee with the Academy of Careers & Technology and Raleigh County Schools that offer opportunities for our education and business communities to work together to help our area students learn skills for their future.

Thank you West Virginia University Institute of Technology for sponsoring the Symposium for 2019 offering area High School students the opportunity to learn about the possibilities for future entrepreneurship.

We also thank these business members for their involvement in the 2019 High School Business Symposium:
