Blackstone, VA – When rural Virginia thrives, everyone in the Commonwealth prospers.


That was among one of the key takeaways from the 2023 Governor’s Summit on Rural Prosperity, hosted by the Virginia Rural Center and held Oct. 10-11, 2023, at Fort Barfoot in Blackstone, Virginia.


Lt. Gov. Winsome Earle-Sears delivered the keynote address at the event that brings together state, business and civic leaders to explore the future of rural Virginia and the innovative initiatives in their respective communities.


“Rural Virginia holds a very special place in our hearts, and I’m honored for the work the Center for Rural Virginia does,” said Lt. Gov. Earle-Sears. “We will continue to make sure that you in the rural parts know that we care. We see you. We are here to listen. We want to hear from you. You’re an important part of our economy. You are not forgotten by this Administration.”
