Sean Hornbuckle

Sean Hornbuckle is a renaissance man. He’s a financial planner for Edward Jones in Huntington. He’s a WV Delegate (D) representing parts of Cabell and Lincoln counties. He’s a basketball coach. He’s a proud father.

The grandson of a coal miner and preacher, Sean first made a name for himself as Student Body President at Marshall University. And ever since, it’s been onward and upward.

This summer, he has been all over the country pounding the drum for his home state. Coaching his basketball team to victory at a Big Shots tournament in South Carolina. Representing his hometown in a “Choose West Virginia” campaign to major American corporations.

No matter where he goes—as a coach, an elected official, or a dad—he proudly represents West Virginia with class and dignity.

For his service to our state, particularly its young people, we are proud to name Sean Hornbuckle the Real West Virginia of the Week.
