Courtesy photo/Sen. Jay Rockefeller’s Office Sen. Jay Rockefeller visited the area prior to the opening of the National Boy Scout Jamboree. In Beckley, he met with a group of Scouts, troop leaders and officials with the Citizen Conservation Corps of West Virginia and the National Park Service. Rockefeller said the Boy Scouts’ Community Service Initiative is an ideal fit for West Virginia, where public service is a way of life. Later, he traveled to Glen Jean to meet with West Virginia National Guard members, pictured, who are providing support to the Jamboree. The senator’s visit was part of his “Summer of Service” tour of West Virginia.
