State School Building Authority awards funds to 13 counties

West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice has appointed three former classroom teachers to the state Board of Education, and appointed another longtime educator to head the state School Building Authority.

Bucky Blackwell, a former county school superintendent with 47 years of education experience, will be new executive director of the School Building Authority, replacing Scott Raines.

Miller Hall, Barbara Whitecotton, and Chuck Hatfield will fill openings on the state school board. They will be sworn in during the next school board meeting in February.

"The politicians and bureaucrats in Charleston have failed to listen to our teachers, so I appointed three educators with significant classroom experience to the state Board of Education, " Justice said. "Miller Hall, Barbara Whitecotton and Chuck Hatfield have dedicated their lives to improving public education and on the state Board of Education, they will help me deliver results for students across West Virginia. They all share my vision for making education the centerpiece of our state.

"Bucky Blackwell cares deeply about our public schools and will do an outstanding job on the SBA, " Justice added. "Local schools are the heart of any community, and too many West Virginia schools are falling apart; I know Bucky will help change that.

"He is very knowledgeable of the SBA and understands the value the SBA has to school systems across West Virginia, and how important this authority is to the success of West Virginia, " Justice said.
