' /I From The Governor s d ;: A weekly column by Gov. Joe Manchin Companies Continue to Have Faith in the Mountain State My optimism in our state's ability to grow has not waned one bit because we continue to attract investments that will help our citizens improve their quality of life. West Virginia has not steered away from its essen- tial building blocks for a better future, which are: Our location, our skilled, dedicated work force and a commit- ment to grow. This past week, I was pleased to join Wirt County officials and repre- Sentatives from Mustang Survival Manufacturing to recognize the company's 10th Anniversary of do- ing business at their plant in Eliza- beth. In addition to Mustang's anni- versary, the company also made an- other significant pledge that will in- crease their business investment in West Virginia. The company plans to hire up to 100 people to operate their newest facility in Spencer. The lon- gevity that Mustang has had speaks volumes of not only the faith that they have in West Virginia, but it says more about the workers who bring quality to the company each day. Mustang is committed to using West Virginia workers. Mustang produces and manufactures various life sup- port, rescue, and protective clothing for marine and aviation environments including hypothermiaprotection, fire resistance, flotation devices, antigrav- ity and other aviation apparel. Also helping to expand the state's business and tourism infrastructure this week was AirTran Airways. ! joined state and local officials, along with AirTran company representa- tives to welcome their inaugural flight service into Charleston from Orlando, Fla. A great deal of time, hard work and planning went into bringing this new flight service to West Virginia, and now we can finally say that the hard work has paid off. AirTran, too. showed faith in the Mountain State and I am confident that our partner- ship will continue to grow. Tri-State Racetrack and Casino also gave the state's tourism industry a "shot in the arm" by fulfilling a com- mitment to expand its facilities. Re- cently, I had the opportunity to "turn some sand" with company officials to mark the beginning of construction on a new hotel that will add a new dimension to the track. All ol'this new business activity has taken place, despite our tough na- tional economic times. I havc said that West Virginia is not going to wait - we will continue to find ways to create new opportunities for our citi- zens. We will continue to grow by maintaining a sound work ethic, stay- ing optimistic and being innovative in the face of adversity. Education Reform Senator John D. Rockefeller IV, introduced the 21 st Century Skill In- centive Fund Act. Senators Olympia Snowe (R-ME) and John Kerry (D- MA) have signed on as original co- sponsors. This legislation would provide matching federal funds to states that offer students curriculum options be- yond the core requirements, includ- ing financial, economic, business and entrepreneurial literacy,civic literacy, and health and wellness awareness. The bill would appropriate $100 mil- lion a year to the U.S. Department of Education to administer matching grants to states that integrate these 21st Century Skills into existing courses at their schools. "West Virginia students need to master the 3 R's, reading, writing, and arithmetic, but they must do more if they want to be ready to compete in the global economy. We live in an increasingly technologically-driven society, and our students must have critical thinking and problem-solving skills that cover a broader area-par- ticularly one that includes financial, economic and business literacy," Rockefeller said. "I've traveled around our state and seen firsthand how tech- nology in the classroom can promote critical thinking, and I want to make sure more students have the same opportunity." This legislation was developed us- ing ideas generated from West Vir- ginia educators and the Partnership for 21st Century Skills, which re- searched and surveyed the skills stu- dents need in the classroom to remain competitive for the future. The Part- nership was developed in 2002 with the support of a U.S. Department of Education Grant and leadership from educators and high technology busi- nesses. Since then, ten states have voluntarily adopted the more com- prehensive set o f skills and standards. Current states are: Arizona, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Massachusetts, New Jersey, North Carolina, South Da- kota, Wisconsin and West Virginia. e J  WE NEED NEW LISTINGS.
