"WV Inspiration, Jamie Summerlin, to Speak at Generation WV’s 2013 Leadership Summit in Morgantown

Morgantown, W.V., October 10, 2013 – Generation West Virginia (GWV), the statewide network of young talent organizations, is pleased to welcome West Virginia Veteran’s Advocate and Ultra-Marathoner, Jamie Summerlin, as guest luncheon speaker at the upcoming 2013 Leadership Summit to be held on Friday, November 8th at the Waterfront Place Hotel in Morgantown, WV.   Jamie will focus his message on "What Are You Going to Do With What You Have Been Given?" 

  Summerlin’s  inspirational story began in 2012 with his “Freedom Run,” a 3,452-mile journey  from Coos Bay, Oregon to  Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, which not only raised money for national and local organizations assisting veterans, but inspired communities and veterans alike to dream big and find ways to support the United States military and veterans.   Through his trek which covered a total of 16 states and the District of Columbia, with the final 100 miles being completed in just less than 24 hours, Jamie became the 48th person ever to complete a true coast-to-coast transcontinental run across America. 

Today, Jamie serves as the President of the Board of Directors of Operation Welcome Home in Morgantown, West Virginia, and is involved in other veteran-focused programs, such as CamoToCap. 

He has become an inspirational speaker for business and professional organizations, schools, veteran groups and the running community. 

 The 2013 Generation West Virginia Leadership Summit will also feature keynote speaker, career author Emily Bennington, on the topic of “Mindful Leadership.”  The one day event provides personal and professional networking and learning opportunities for all emerging and established leaders from across the state.  For more information and to register for the 2013 Generation West Virginia Leadership Summit visit  www.generationwv.com.
