Former Gov. Gaston Caperton will serve as master of ceremonies. And everybody and anybody will be involved.
The ceremony will begin with processional music by the Horace Mann Middle School kids.
Then there will be welcoming remarks by Caperton and the posting of the colors by the West Virginia National Guard Color Guard.
Following that will be the Pledge of Allegiance led by Jack Antolini, a Webelo Scout from St. Francis de Sales School in Beckley, and Nick Bowen of Boy Scout Troop 3 from St. Mary's Methodist Church in Beckley.
After that comes the National Anthem by Nick Naylor of Capital High School and the invocation by the Rev. Doug Craven of First Presbyterian Church in Logan
Next comes "My Home Among the Hills" by the Appalachian Children's Chorus.
State Supreme Court Chief Justice Robin Jean Davis then will administer the oath of office, and Tomblin will give an investiture address.
The Rev. Dennis Sparks, executive director of the West Virginia Council of Churches, will give a benediction, followed by the retiring of the colors by the West Virginia National Guard Color Guard.
At last, the Horace Mann Middle School Chamber Strings gets another moment in the spotlight - the recessional.
The Horace Mann orchestra is no stranger to practice. The students get together with Jessee every other day at school. They also practice on Monday nights for the West Virginia Youth Symphony and Saturdays to prepare for the upcoming American Strings Teachers Association competition in Kansas City, Mo.
The hard work has paid off.
Blackwell said the student orchestra has gone undefeated the last three years at the West Virginia Strawberry Festival in Buckhannon and the Music in the Parks strings competition at Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio.
They also have played for dignitaries. When Gov. Bob Wise decided to sign the 2002 teacher pay raise into law in a Horace Mann classroom, the school's strings students lined the halls. They played "The West Virginia Hills" as he passed.
"Eight years later, three governors later, and they're playing the same song," Blackwell said.
