Each year, West Virginia Executive magazine publishes a “Young Guns” list recognizing young professionals in the business community who drive our Mountain State forward. We're proud to share that Tara St. Clair, program director of our Encova Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, made West Virginia Executive magazine's Young Guns Class of 2023! As one of 10 West Virginia professionals, St. Clair was honored to be chosen for this year’s class.
“It was an honor to be recognized among such an esteemed group of folks from across West Virginia,” she said. “I feel grateful to have a job that I am able to serve all West Virginians and make a real impact.”
Through the Encova Center, St. Clair works with West Virginians of all ages to empower them to innovate.
“I help people in West Virginia turn their dreams into reality. Working in an outreach center under our land-grant mission, I am fortunate to serve all 55 counties and people of all ages. As the Center has grown, we have made a bigger push for supporting K-12 entrepreneurship education. I feel it is important to create a pipeline of problem solvers in order to create a better future for West Virginia.”
