The West Virginia Board of Education unanimously elected a new President.
State board member Paul Hardesty, of Logan County, is the new Board President.
Hardesty has been elected to the Logan County Board of Education and appointed the seventh district of the West Virginia Senate. A press release says Hardesty has 30 years of public service.
Moreover, board member Nancy White was elected Vice President.
The vote on officers of the state BOE follows the announcement this week of Tom Campbell’s resignation from the board.
Campbell was a two-time president and two-time vice president of the board.
Campbell was appointed for another ten-year term on the state Board of Education to run through 2030. Governor Justice will appoint someone to fill that vacancy.
