Long-time donor provides lead gift in construction of bridge at WVU Jackson’s Mill

Each year thousands of West Virginia youths and other visitors travel to West Virginia University Jackson’s Mill to participate in 4-H camps where they learn valuable leadership and mentoring skills, while forging lifelong friendships. Part of that journey includes participation in the West Virginia State 4-H Camp Council Circle, a symbolic center of spirit for campers.

For the past century, getting to the Circle has meant traversing along a wooded trail, with no direct access to the area. Through a generous donation of $100,000 from long-time 4-H and Jackson’s Mill supporter, Jack M. Tyree, campers will now travel to the Circle via the Jack M. and Helen S. Tyree Bridge.

“A bridge is a symbol of connections and progress in our lives. At Jackson’s Mill, our young people will build attitude, knowledge, and skill – important bridges with their friends, their community and their future,” Tyree said.
