10 West Virginia Schools Named Schools of Excellence

Posted: Updated:

Ten West Virginia schools have been named schools of excellence, and the Randolph Technical Center is one of those schools.

The West Virginia Department of Education said schools of excellence are selected based on specific criteria.

The technical center has been recognized in the past with exemplary awards, and was named a school of excellence in 1992.

"I attribute everything to their hard work. The staff in this building eagerly goes out and gets new training. They're willing to try anything, the students respond so well to them. It's just been a total honor for this school," said Don Johnson, of the Randolph Technical Center.

Schools will be recognized with a reception and a banquet on October 9 at the Clay Center in Charleston.

The nine other schools include: Hedgesville Elementary in Berkeley County, Colliers Primary in Brooke County, Culloden Elementary in Cabell County, Big Otter Elementary in Clay County, Maysville Elementary in Grant County, Herbert Hoover High School in Kanawha County, Mercer County Technical Center, Panther Creek Elementary in Nicholas County, and West Liberty Elementary in Ohio County.
