CHARLESTON — A Weirton native has been selected to be a part of West Virginia Executive magazine’s Young Guns Class of 2022.

Among the 10 inductees was Dr. Lisa M. Costello, assistant professor at the WVU School of Medicine’s Department of Pediatrics.

Among her numerous credits, she helped develop a mentorship program for the National American Academy of Pediatrics, and received the 2015 Advocate for Children Award from the West Virginia Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics.

More recently, she has been assisting the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources on the statewide pandemic response and helped launch the #LETSGO gratitude project.

The inductees were honored at a reception at the West Virginia Cultural Center in Charleston on Nov. 19.

WVE’s annual Young Guns honors program recognizes 10 outstanding West Virginians age 43 or younger who have accomplished great things in their careers and communities.

Honorees must have lived in the state and been in their West Virginia-based position for at least two years and must actively participate in community service.
