Norma Thompson Recognized for 50 Years of Service, Logan-Mingo Area Mental Health


A long-time member of the Logan-Mingo Area Mental Health Board of Directors was recognized for her 50 years of service.


On Thursday, the mental health facility at 3 Mile Curve was commemorated as the Norma Gill Thompson Center.


Thompson began her service on the board in 1970 while an employee with the West Virginia Department of Employment Security. She eventually retired from the department as State Assistant Director, but she still volunteers for several community and veteran organizations.


“My objective has always been to do a task to the best of my ability,” Thompson said, “and to maximize the positive effect my efforts have on others.”


Moreover, she said her 50 years of serving Logan and Mingo counties have been a blessing and privilege.
