“West Liberty University has a proud history of educational excellence, and once this new health science building is completed, it will add to the distinction found on this beautiful campus. Today’s groundbreaking event is not just about the construction of a new building; it’s about building a foundation of investment—investment in your students, investment in your faculty, investment in your staff, and investment in your community. Once this project is completed, West Liberty University will showcase the commitment it has to our state and this region. Thank you to President Robin Capehart and the Board of Governors, as well as the students, faculty, and staff. I applaud the hard work of everyone involved in this project and sincerely appreciate your commitment to providing West Virginians and students across our nation with the quality education they deserve.”

“I’m thrilled to see West Liberty expand courses in the science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) areas. Increased focus on these disciplines will positively influence the future both locally and globally. Also, the concentration on STEM subjects is sure to accommodate tomorrow’s job market and allow West Virginia graduates to live and work at home after college. I’m excited by the addition of the health science facility, and I consider the efforts of those involved to be inspirational. With this kind of progress, West Liberty University is sure to continue on its present path to success.”
— West Virginia Governor Earl Ray Tomblin
