Vaccination Sweepstakes CL News

It’s always nice to see frontline workers get love, even if it’s by the luck of the draw. Last week in West Virginia, Gov. Jim Justice surprised a young man at his job at Greenbrier West High School with a life-changing opportunity today through his “Do it for Babydog: Round 2” Vaccination Sweepstakes.

The Governor and Babydog arrived at the school to surprise Waylon Gilkeson from Rupert, a custodian at GWHS, with a full-ride college scholarship.

The full four-year scholarship to any public college or university in the state, includes room and board, tuition, and books. The prize is valued at over $100,000.

Gilkeson says he plans to go to college with hopes of becoming an educator himself one day.
