The PAWV Board of Directors are volunteers from across the state who are dedicated to preserving our Mountain State’s cultural resources. The board is comprised of four officers, three members representing each of the Congressional Districts, at-large members, and ex-officio members from different state agencies. Each year, PAWV holds an annual meeting to vote on who will sit on its Board of Directors. The most recent meeting was held on September 21 during the 11th Annual Historic Preservation Awards banquet. PAWV voted for three new individuals to join the board and for a new Vice President.
The 2020 officers are President Logan Smith of Elkins, Vice President Paula McClain of Morgantown, Secretary Phyllis Baxter of Elkins, and Treasurer Cris Green of Clarksburg. Paula is a newly elected officer for PAWV and is looking forward to her new post. She says,
The past couple of years have given me an amazing opportunity to learn about the diversity of West Virginia’s rich cultural heritage, and although I’m relatively new to the state, I’m proud to call it my adopted home. I’m so excited to be kicking off my second year with PAWV and hope that my role as an officer will allow me the chance to get more people from all walks of life engaged in the work that we’re doing.
