ROANOKE, W.Va. – During the West Virginia Board of Education’s (WVBE) executive session today at Stonewall Resort in Lewis County, Ray and Associates, Inc. outlined to Board members its steps for evaluating State Superintendent candidates.
The search firm engaged with 248 individuals regarding the position. The WVBE attributes this quality response to Ray and Associates' nationwide recruiting reach. Through an informal inquiry, Ray and Associates found that the majority of candidates applied because of West Virginia's location and size.
