Elisha Boone grew up all over New York City – Brooklyn, Queens and Long Island. He decided to get away for a while and started looking at schools outside of the state. He found out about Tech and thought he’d just drop by to check it out.
The WVU Tech Forensic Investigation program will host a Crime Scene Investigation Community Workshop on Saturday, November 4 from 9-11:30 a.m. on the WVU Tech campus in Beckley.
With any venture, sometimes getting started is the hardest part. Johann Goethe, an 18th-century statesman, author and scientist, famously said that “what is not started will never get finished,” and that simple concept has been the driving force behind some of the best businesses and inventions of the modern world.
Sometimes, it just takes that first step to build something big. That’s where the LaunchLab at WVU Tech comes in.
WVU Tech students come from all walks of life. The student body represents nearly every county in West Virginia. They represent 30 states and come from as far away as Alaska and Hawaii.
