Four Area Youths among WVU's 2015 Class of Bucklew Scholars ; Capital, GW, Valley High School Students Achieve Academic Distinction


For the 2015 West Virginia University class of Bucklew Scholars, attending their state's flagship university is all about opportunities to become cardiologists and engineers, to study abroad, to discover, research, learn and grow. It isn't only the opportunities that WVU offers these 20 top-achieving West Virginia high school seniors in the classroom and beyond that will influence their decision about calling WVU home for the next four years.
