West Virginia Selects WIN Learning Career Readiness System as Essential Tool for All High Schools, Career and Technical Education Programs within State

Kingston, Tenn. – June 10, 2013 – As the labor market transformed during the knowledge economy era of the last 50 years, getting a high school diploma has become ever more important.
