PINEVILLE, WV (WVNS) — ORIGINAL STORY: Members of the Wyoming County Board of Education will hold a special meeting to discuss the future of sporting events between the two rival high schools.
Wyoming Count Superintendent Deirdre Cline told 59News the meeting is a “work session.” Board members will discuss and come up with a plan regarding the future of sporting events between Wyoming East High School and Westside High School.
