The West Virginia Department of Education, Career and Technical Education Division, has committed $50,000 to demolish the remaining buildings on a 2.5-acre parcel of land adjacent to the Moorefield High School. The parcel, formerly known as the Sherman Property and Main Street Project, will be the location of a school/community farmers market.
One of the buildings was demolished last month, primarily with private funding.
School Superintendent Sheena VanMeter announced the funding at the July 2 Hardy County Board of Education meeting.
“Mr. Simmons met with Dr. D’Antoni and spent a lot of time on this,” VanMeter said.
