Dan Taylor here, Program Coordinator for the Hub’s Energizing Entrepreneurial Communities program.
As part of this program, we have been working with some great community members in the Madison – Danville area of Boone County.
In looking for avenues to boost the local economy and support small business growth, recreational tourism has been on the minds of many, with the Hatfield McCoy Trail system and the Coal River watershed both as opportunities.
One group that is looking to take full advantage of these opportunities is the the Adventure Tourism class at the Boone County Career and Technical Center, taught by Bobby Miller.
This past fall, Kyle Mills, an outdoor educator with Experience Learning from Spruce Knob and Wayne County native, wrote this great piece about a trip with the class.
