Republican Sharon Lewis Malcolm has been appointed to a West Virginia House of Delegates seat.

Gov. Jim Justice announced Malcolm's appointment Thursday. The 39th District seat represents Kanawha County.

Malcolm fills a vacancy created by the resignation earlier this month of Republican Delegate Ron Walters. Malcolm is running unopposed for the seat in the May 8 Republican primary election.

Malcolm is a Charleston resident and a retired auditor for the state.

She was the first woman to serve as a doorkeeper and as sergeant at arms for the House of Delegates.
