Beckley City Councilwoman Appointed to State Service Commission by Governor Tomblin


Beckley, W.VA. – Beckley City Councilwoman Ann Worley was appointed by Governor Earl Ray Tomblin to serve as part of a bi-partisan commission on volunteerism and service. 

A lifelong volunteer, Worley is passionate about engaging West Virginians through service to solve problems in their communities. “Helping raise awareness of volunteer opportunities in West Virginia is of paramount importance to me,” said Worley. “I am excited to be a Commissioner because of the potential to spread the word around the state about what Volunteer West Virginia can offer.” 

Worley started her volunteer journey as a Candy Striper in 1968 and has been volunteering ever since in many different venues - from community theatre in Florida to the local Community Emergency Response Team in Beckley. “I was brought up with the belief that we have a duty to use our time and talents to volunteer and make a contribution,” said Worley. “In my teens, my first experience with volunteering was as a Candy Striper at Johns Hopkins Hospital working with children with physical challenges. The moment I stepped into that volunteer role, I was hooked! I love volunteering as you meet new people with like interests and have a lot of fun while helping others.” 

PRESS RELEASE Ann Worley will serve a three-year term on the Volunteer West Virginia Commission. The Commission manages West Virginia’s AmeriCorps programs and provides more than 4 million dollars of federal funding to nonprofits across the state. Commission programs impact each of West Virginia’s fifty-five counties and supports national service and volunteer initiatives that focus on serving veterans, growing our economic, historical and cultural resources, mentoring students, and improving literacy.
