“These are some fine role models for Hardy County schools,” said Superintendent Dr. Matthew Dotson at the Board of Education meeting on November 16.
He was talking about the East Hardy High School Varsity Girls Volleyball team. The team won the West Virginia State Championship on Saturday.
Team members received recognition not only for their athletic prowess, but also for their success in the classroom: The team’s cumulative GPA is 3.8.
Board member J. Brad Simmons said he’d asked the athletes about what generated their success this year, as opposed to other years. He said they told him, “‘We didn’t have any internal arguing or strife.’”
The next meeting will be December 5, at East Hardy Early/Middle School at 6 p.m. The Board will be visiting all schools over the next few months.
