A West Virginia Supreme Court justice will speak this week in Welch during the McDowell County Law Day event.

Justice Allen H. Loughry II will be the main speaker at the event, set for 10 a.m. Friday at the McDowell County Courthouse.

The Supreme Court said President Dwight D. Eisenhower proclaimed Law Day in 1958 to reflect on the role of law in the founding of the U.S. It is usually held on or around May 1.

Winners of contests held for McDowell County schoolchildren will be given awards during the ceremony Friday. McDowell County Judges Booker T. Stephens and Rudolph J. Murensky II host the event each year.
