Several high school juniors and seniors will participate in the first session of the Tom Dunn Energy Leadership Academy, taking place July 9-10 at West Virginia Wesleyan College.

College officials recently announced that 37 participants are expected to attend an Energy Career day, where students will learn about employment opportunities in the energy sector.

The event is held in conjunction with IOGA's sixth annual West Virginia Oil & Gas Equipment show, which takes place July 10-11.

On the last day of the academy, students will have the chance to visit the exhibits in this show and interact with industry employees.

The Tom Dunn Energy Leadership Academy honors Buckhannon residents and local businessman, Thomas B. Dunn, a 1964 graduate of West Virginia Wesleyan College.

Dunn was a former president of IOGA, a recipient of IOGAWV's "Gunslinger" Award, and was West Virginia's Oil and Gas Man of the Year in 1982.
