Football Rivals Come Together In School Consolidation On This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, school consolidation is always a hot topic in small communities. Giving up longstanding hometown football teams is hard. This week, Inside Appalachia looks at how two old county football rivals came together for something new. Mason Adams has more.

Also, in this show, our Mountain Stage Song of the Week comes from Grammy Award winner Catherine Russell, who made her sixth Mountain Stage appearance. We listen to her performance of “Sticks and Stones,” which comes from her album Send for Me, released in 2022.
