Board members searching for appointee


The members of the Upshur County Board of Education are asking for letters of interest from community members who would like to be considered to serve the remaining term of the board seat  vacated due to the resignation of Carl Martin.

WV State Code calls for the Board to appoint someone to fill the vacancy and we want to make sure that we’ve considered all those interested in filling this important position.

Appointed members must meet the same qualifications as a regular candidate for a county Board of Education member.  Those requirements can be found in WV State Code §18-5-1a.  Interested candidates should familiarize themselves with the requirements before applying.  Board members cannot appoint a member from Magisterial District 3 due to the fact that the maximum amount of board members from that district are currently serving on the Upshur County Board of Education.

Eligible citizens interested in the position can submit a letter of interest detailing qualifications to Roy Wager, Superintendent via e-mail to [email protected]  or U. S. mail or hand delivery to 102 Smithfield Street, Buckhannon, WV  26201.  Letters must be received by 4:00 p.m. on Thursday, January 18, 2018.

Upon the Board’s appointment, the selected member will serve through June 30, 2018.  Those expressing interest should note that their name could be released publicly during or after the conclusion of the appointment process.
