Students raising their hands

The U.S. Department of Education has named two schools in West Virginia as 2014 National Blue Ribbon Schools.

The department announced the awards Tuesday for 335 schools nationwide.

The West Virignia schools are Evans Elementary School in Jackson County and Gihon Elementary School in Parkersburg.

The program that began in 1982 recognizes public and private elementary, middle and high schools that are either high performing or have raised student achievement to high levels.

The schools will be acknowledged at a ceremony in November in Washington, D.C.
