Sheep Farmers Share History, Fun And Wisdom With Wheeling Public School Students


On this West Virginia Morning, we continue to hear from and about the youth in our region. In this show, we hear the perspective of a young farmer, and we also hear from one of our first place winners in this year’s West Virginia Public Broadcasting Writers Contest.

A year long debate over four provisional ballots in Harpers Ferry has been decided on by the West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals. Liz McCormick has more.

We continue an occasional series brought to us by students and storytellers in the Northern Panhandle. Ohio County public school kids there are teaming up with an outfit of urban farmers with the nonprofit Grow Ohio Valley. Jenn Jenson brought local sheep farmers in to speak with students. Together, they brought us this story.

We want to share one of our first place stories from this year’s West Virginia Public Broadcasting Writers Contest. This morning we hear Emily Woody from Hurricane who won among 5th grade contestants. Here’s Emily reading her story titled Cloudy Fields.
