WVU-P, Roane schools plan rural education
PARKERSBURG, W.Va. -- West Virginia University-Parkersburg and the Roane County school system are partnering to provide educational and training opportunities for rural residents.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture has awarded a $298,330 grant for the program.
