  • Focus on Graduation

    The ultimate goal of every student in our schools is to graduate from high school ready for college and careers. At a special ceremony held in the state capitol, West Virginia Governor Earl Ray Tomblin and State Superintendent of Schools Dr. Michael Martirano recognized both Mingo County schools - Mingo Central and Tug Valley - as two of only a few dozen statewide that acheived graduation rates at or above 90% last school year. Mingo County Superintendent Dr. Robert Bobbera, Mingo County Board of Education Vice President Jacqueline Branch, and representatives of each school received this recognition on behalf of our teachers and students.
