As part of the energy land management program, one of the WVU Davis College’s newest undergraduate majors, Justin Booth has been able to add fuel to his education in a variety of ways.
The Buffalo, West Virginia, native was recently awarded a scholarship from the American Association of Professional Landmen. He was one of only 30 students across the U.S. to receive a $5,000 scholarship from the AAPL’s Landman Scholarship Trust.
“There is a lot of interest in students in the program from professionals in the oil and gas industry,” he said. “They have visited class on many occasions to talk and share what they do with students.”
Additionally, he and fellow students established a new student organization - the Energy Land Management Association - from the ground up. As an active member of the national and local chapters of the AAPL, Booth has been able to connect with and learn from industry professionals.
