We enjoyed celebrating our Mid-Ohio Valley Center board member – Mario Liberatore’s well-deserved recognition tonight as he received the Governor’s Award for Lifetime Achievement. Thanks very much to Charles Lanham for his leadership in organizing Mario’s nomination, we were proud to support the nomination and to help celebrate the presentation tonight at the awards ceremony in Charleston. Secretary of the Arts, Kay Goodwin, and Gayle Manchin, former first lady of WV and current WV Board of Ed chair, presented tonight’s awards at an impressive dinner in the Civic Center. Congratulations, Mario!
