This week, Bob Wise, former governor of West Virginia and current president of the Alliance for Excellent Education, celebrated the fifteenth anniversary of the funding of the PROMISE scholarship, signed into law by Wise during his first year as governor. The PROMISE scholarship is a state-sponsored, merit-based scholarship program that enables eligible West Virginia residents to attend any public or private college or university within the state. Wise, West Virginia University (WVU) President Gordon Gee, and several current and former PROMISE recipients gathered on Tuesday for a roundtable discussion and cake-cutting celebration at WVU to mark this milestone anniversary.
