from Secretary Goodwin
Welcome! As the Cabinet Secretary of the Department of Education and the Arts, I am pleased to welcome you to our website. I have the distinct pleasure of overseeing several divisions with vastly different missions, but with one very special thing in common—they each, in their own unique and special way, directly touch the lives of West Virginia's citizens. They do this by performing forms of public service that enrich people’s lives and ultimately improve our communities and our state.
Please take a few minutes to explore the site to learn the many different ways the Department of Education and the Arts touches your life. Let me know if there is ever anything I can do to help you or enrich education and the arts in our great state!
