I I IG a o tSeFrbm eGv] Governor Gaston Caperton announced today two awards from the partnership for Prog- ress Challenge Fund to southern West Virginia for tourism devel- opment projects initiated by the Area Five and Six Partnership councils. Area Five, which includes Fayette. Greenbrier. Mercer, Monroe, Nicholas, Raleigh and Summers counties received $25,000 for a Tourist Informa- tion Delivery System. This project, matched with $35,000 in local support, will produce a map of area attrac- tions, highway signs and bill- board flags for the visitor infor- mation station, and training for "step-on tour bus guides" in co6peration with Theater West Virginia coach tours. Dr Jerry Beasley, chairman of the Area Five Council and presi- dent of Concord College, said, "This grant enables us to solve a problem and encourages us to promote tourism regionally, rather than locally." Concord College and West Virginia University are collabo- rating on the creation of an Ap- palachian Regional Tourism Center for research and develop- ment and will capitalize on the resources available through Concord's Travel Industry man- agement degree program. This furthers our goal of re- gional tourism promotion across the region," Dr Beasley added. Governor Caperton an- nounced in May the creation of the $500,000 Challenge Fund to be matched locally by money or in-kind services for use by the I~artnership Councils to achieve their goals. Doug Maddy, partnership co6rdinator for both Areas Five and Six, said, "Tourism in Area Five is already an Important part of the economy. It Is very excit- ing to see innovative and crea- tive projects like both of these build on this existing industry." The :Partnership for Progress program is administered through the Governor's Office of Commu- nity and Industrial Development.
