BUCKHANNON — The Upshur County Board of Education recently honored some outstanding individuals at the Buckhannon-Upshur High School auditorium.
While the year of COVID-19 caused so many learning issues, some students went above and beyond with their mathematic achievements. Buckhannon Academy Elementary School students Fynn Fleck, Brock Williams and Braylea Squires were recognized for their outstanding performances.
Alongside the students, four retirees were also honored for their decades of service to the schools of Upshur County. Debra Smith, Bennie Nazelrod, Brenda McCourt and Tim Cogar were all recognized for their retirements. Cogar, who served over 30 years, was the only retiree present and he was given a plaque recognizing his many years of dedication.
