Present for the ribbon cutting were: Jefferson County Commissioner Dale Manuel, Ranson Mayor Dave Hamill, Manchin, state Sen. Herb Snyder, American Public University President and CEO Wallace E. Boston, Charles Town Mayor Peggy Smith, state Delegate Tiffany Lawrence and APUS Chief Financial Officer Harry Wilkins.
