In honor of National Service Week and the 50th Anniversary of VISTA (Volunteers in Service to America), this week we're looking back to the stories of some of the first VISTA volunteers who came to West Virginia.
And we’ll catch a sneak peek from a new documentary about former U.S. Senator Jay Rockefeller, who was himself a young volunteer who came to work in West Virginia during the 1960s. “And I kept a diary every day which I didn’t read for 50 years, it was sort of like a sacred document to me. In reading that, I realized how much I grew, how I changed, how much they did, the people of Emmons, to make me who I believe I am.”
