East End Main Street director Ric Cavender is among the outstanding young West Virginians honored in the State Journal’s 2010 “Generation Next: 40 Under 40″ issue.
In his two years with the Charleston Area Alliance and EEMS, Ric has led volunteer efforts to launch a wide range of innovative projects to promote economic development and historic preservation in the Capitol gateway neighborhood. These include expansion of the East End wireless network, the creation of the HallowEast festival and transformation of Washington Street into a mile-long art gallery though StreetWorks.
We congratulate Ric on this well-deserved honor and look forward to many more exciting developments in the East End under his leadership.
