Thumbs — Saturday, Aug. 24, 2013


Thumbs up ... to Michael Martin, mayor of Mount Hope, who was named the state’s top mayor for 2013 by his peers at the recent West Virginia Municipal League Annual Conference. He was nominated by council members for construction of the industrial park, removing 30 blighted structures, Streetscape improvements and the town’s comprehensive plan.

Thumbs up ... to the West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine in Lewisburg, once again recognized for its commitment to providing one of the top places to work in West Virginia and the country. For the third straight year, The Chronicle of Higher Education has listed WVSOM as one of the best colleges to work for.
