Harrison Co. Expected to Name Mark Manchin as Superintendent


West Virginia School Building Authority executive director Mark Manchin says he plans to step down to become Harrison County’s school superintendent.
     The county Board of Education has scheduled a special meeting Wednesday to vote on a proposed contract. School board president David Sturm tells media outlets that he expects the board to approve the contract.
     Manchin says he will accept the job if it’s offered.
     Manchin has served as the SBA’s executive director since 2006. He previously served as the state-appointed superintendent of McDowell County Schools and as Webster County’s superintendent.
     The Marion County native says the move would put him closer to his mother, who lives in Fairmont. An aunt and several cousins live in Harrison County.
