W.Va. Authority Awards $43 Million for School Projects

School Building Authority

 The West Virginia School Building Authority has awarded more than $43 million for construction projects in seven counties.
The grants approved Monday include more than $12 million for a new elementary school in Gilmer County.
Mingo, Monongalia and Wayne counties each received more than $8 million for school projects.

Wayne County's grant is contingent on voters approving a bond. If the bond is approved on May 13, the county will receive another $10 million grant next year. Wayne County plans to build a new Ceredo Kenova Elementary School, a new Crum pre-kindergarten through 8th grade school, and to renovate Wayne County High School.
Authority members also awarded grants for projects in Brooke, Doddridge and Ohio counties.
