(Bluefield)—Jim Justice, Owner of The Greenbrier Resort, will be the keynote speaker during "A Celebration of Success" banquet and program saluting Bluefield State College's athletic programs at Fincastle on the Mountain, April 22, beginning at 7 p.m.

Justice is president and CEO of nearly 50 different companies, including interests in coal reserve expansion, Christmas tree farms, cotton gins, turf grass operations, golf courses, timber enhancement and land projects. After purchasing The Greenbrier Resort a few years ago, he established The Greenbrier Classic, a Professional Golfers' Association (PGA) annual tournament that has attracted some of the game's top stars to the Mountain State.

With a lifelong interest in athletics, Justice has carried on his family's tradition of being a major supporter of youth sports programs, including a stint as President of Beckley Little League and coaching basketball for all ages for the past 30 years. He is the head coach for the girls' and boys' varsity basketball teams at Greenbrier East High School. As a collegian, Justice played golf for the University of Tennessee and, after transferring to Marshall University, he was named captain of the Thundering Herd's golf team during his junior and senior years.

Individual tickets to the event are $50 and table sponsorships are $400. Table sponsorships include seats for eight individuals and the opportunity to attend a "Meet and Greet" Session with Jim Justice prior to the dinner. Student athletic table sponsorships are also available at $400 and underwrite the cost for eight BSC student-athletes to be able to attend the event. Individuals and/or businesses will also receive recognition in the program and advertising as sponsors. Please make checks payable to the Bluefield State College Foundation. Proceeds from "A Celebration of Success" will go to the Bluefield State College Athletic Department.
