CHARLESTON, W.Va. – Superintendent of Schools Dr. Steven Paine today appointed Barry Mullins to the Logan County Board of Education.

Mullins will fill the seat vacated by Paul Hardesty, following his appointment to the State Senate in February. Mullins will complete Hardesty’s term, which is set to expire on June 30, 2020.

A graduate of Chapmanville High School and the Ralph R. Willis Career and Technical Center, Mullins works for Arch Coal and is actively involved in his local community. He is from the Harts Creek area in the West Magisterial District.

“As a board member, I am committed to making sound financial decisions,” Mullins said. “I look forward to working with fellow board members on increasing student achievement in the face of a pervasive drug epidemic and more of our students living with their grandparents.”

Mullins is the proud father of two daughters who attend Logan County schools. He is passionate about expanding career technical education programs and preparing all Logan County students for success in the workforce.
