Marshall-Based History Website Debuts Upgrades Thanks To Recent Funding

Sep 26, 2019

On this West Virginia Morning, a website that brings local history to life is expanding, thanks to a hefty grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Emily Allen visited Marshall University in Huntington, where the program was developed, and learned about some of the town’s culture and history, silently embedded in structures left behind and often overlooked.

Also on today’s show, as part of a week of events and action on climate change, two West Virginia lawmakers held a webinar Tuesday with middle and high school students across the state. Democratic Delegate Evan Hansen and Republican House Speaker Roger Hanshaw took questions from students about how climate change is affecting West Virginia and what lawmakers are doing to address it. Brittany Patterson reports.
