WAYNE COUNTY, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Wayne County Schools officially welcomed its new school board members on Wednesday night.
The new members are Lois Little, Johnita Jackson, and Trey Morrone.
The new board members spent the last two days going through orientation in Morgantown before the swearing-in ceremony.
The new board members say they're looking forward to finding the district's next superintendent and finalizing construction plans.
"We're very excited to be able to work together and to work with the existing board members," Morrone said. "We have two fantastic board members returning that we're excited to work with, and I think it's going to be a really good team. I think Wayne County is going to be very excited when they see the five of us work together."
The new school board will narrow down the superintendent candidates for the county, in hopes of finding a permanent replacement this summer.
