Snowshoe Mountain looks for ways to get people to work

Marlinton, WV – Snowshoe Mountain’s Human Resources Director has a vision of a recruitment and training center that she says could be open in Marlinton as early as next spring.

Tracy Samples says it’s an idea they’ve been working on since 2003, but the idea has grown into a comprehensive center to address the needs Samples believes keep people from going to work, among them an obvious one: Transportation.

Thursday morning, people from a number of social services and employment agencies sat down in a meeting room together at McClintic Library, to explore the idea.

Samples talked with us after that meeting.
