Student Union Talks Proposed WVU Cuts And Amy Ray Band Has Our Song Of The Week, This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, the West Virginia University Board of Governors is expected to vote Friday morning on proposed cuts to programs at the university’s Morgantown campus. Chris Schulz sat down with two members of the recently formed West Virginia United Student Union to talk about their efforts to protest the cuts.

Also, in this show, our Mountain Stage Song of the Week comes to us from Amy Ray Band, who has been performing on Mountain Stage since 1990. We listen to the song “A Mighty Thing.”
