Young people are the future of our great state, and C.W. Shipley, Evans and Culloden Elementary Schools have proven themselves to be incredible representatives of the Mountain State. Gayle and I join all of West Virginia in congratulating the schools honored today on this academic distinction and community achievement,” said Senator Manchin.
