Introducing the Young Guns Class of 2024


Adaptability in the face of adversity, commitment to community and a knack for helping their fellow West Virginians are all qualities shared by the individuals that make up West Virginia Executive’s Young Guns Class of 2024. Not only are these qualities present among the honorees in this Young Guns class, but a desire to propel West Virginia forward and defy the stereotypes of its people also exists.

Ten exceptional West Virginians are recognized each year for their ongoing work to improve the world around them. From Southern West Virginia to the Mid-Ohio Valley all the way to the Potomac Highlands, this year’s Young Guns share a passion for serving their communities and proudly call the Mountain State their home.

Each Young Gun honoree must live and work in West Virginia, be 43 years of age or younger at the time of induction, excel in their career and be an active participant in their community.
