“Being a hard worker, being honest, really caring about people and animals and trying to help them … those were the things I took away from those 18 years living at home in Roane County.” That’s what West Virginia means to Rustin Moore, a 1986 WVU graduate who helped save hundreds of horses following Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Read more about Moore in this story from the latest WV

Take a look back at a busy spring sports season in the latest edition of the WVU Magazine. We’ve got everything from a 5-year-old’s dream come true to ANOTHER rifle national title (did someone say dynasty?). What was your favorite sports moment from the spring? 
This season we welcomed 5-year-old basketball player Nicholas Wince, said goodbye to legend Hot Rod Hundley and bagged a few championships.

We followed Saira Blair, WVU student and the youngest legislator in the country, around for a day in February. Check it out.
Some days she’s in class at WVU. On other days she’s in her office as the nation’s youngest legislator.

Last week, WVU awarded eight scholarships to support the future careers of some of the most exciting young scientists in the country. Congrats to these students!
It was old home week for Jordan Hallow and Katherine Bomkamp, one a student at West Virginia University and one an alumna, as they returned to the Intel Science and Engineering Fair, known as ISEF - the world's largest pre-collegiate science competition - held last week in Pittsburgh.
