Jim McJunkin: Tuesday Morning Group deserves to be heard (Opinion)

My late brother, Tom McJunkin, who founded mentoring programs for many West Virginia elementary schools, always spoke highly of the Rev. Matthew J. Watts, with whom he shared a deep interest in the development of our young people.

As a pediatrician, I certainly share this same passion for the growth and success of our youth. Therefore, I was intrigued to learn from the Gazette-Mail recently that Watts and an interfaith group of clergy and lay leaders known as the Tuesday Morning Group have been working for nearly two decades to promote legislation to lift up economically depressed communities in West Virginia, with a focus on youth and education.
