On Tues., Apr. 15, the Gilmer County Board of Education met in the Troy Elementary School gymnasium.
The Board and other attendees were treated to a well-planned Local School Improvement Council (LSIC) program which showed off the wonderful students of Troy. From poetry readings by sixth graders and a beautiful performance of "The West Virginia Hills" by a group of first graders, Troy Elementary really gave their all to the people in attendance at the meeting.
Superintendent Ron Blankenship complimented the students and Troy's principal, Kyre-Anna Minney, saying, "They did an excellent job. I was very impressed with the students, as I always am when they are involved in the LSIC meetings."
The regular meeting was called to order by Board President Dr. William Simmons right before the Superintendent's report.
A number of field trips that were approved by the board were included in the new business discussion.
There was one out-of-county transfer approved from a Gilmer County school to Braxton County.
The next BOE meeting will take place on Tues., Apr. 29 at 6:00 PM. That meeting will be held at Sand Fork Elementary.
