Ways high school students believe life in Wirt County can be improved.
Teams of youngsters from Wirt County High School Tuesday presented ways to turn the town around.
Among them were state education board president Gayle Manchin and house speaker Tim Miley.
It's part of a campaign by the statewide magazine "West Virginia Focus" that's been used in other cities, including Grafton and Matewan.
"It truly exemplifies what education is about today, interactive teams working together, solving problems, being creative, finding solutions, and presenting their work in a way that is an action project," says Manchin.
The kids are students of business teacher Debra Hartshorn, who heard about the program during a seminar in Morgantown.
Wirt County and Elizabeth saw a business decline over the years, and the school hopes the ideas will revitalize the area by emphasizing the positive things about it.
