WEST VIRGINIA (LOOTPRESS) – Each year, some of the sharpest historical young minds throughout West Virginia are honored as knights of the Golden Horseshoe.
The distinction acts as acknowledgement of a student’s having demonstrated exception knowledge of West Virginia history on an exam administered by the state itself. This year, 226 students have demonstrated such a capacity, proving themselves worthy of joining the distinguished ranks of other Mountain State citizens who have been honored with the prestigious award over the years.
Of the 226 students who will join these ranks, eleven will do so in representation of Raleigh County and Fayette County.
The 2023 Golden Horseshoe winners out of Raleigh County and Fayette County as announced by the West Virginia Department of Education are as follows:
Tyler Stover, Beckley-Stratton Middle School Elyssa Woolwine, Independence Middle School Kofi Ackon-annan, Park Middle School Ava Ford, Park Middle School Nicholi Brammer, Shady Spring Middle School Skyler Gibson, Shady Spring Middle School Audrey Justice, Shady Spring Middle School
Savannah Callison, Midland Trail High School Jenna Maynor, Oak Hill Middle School Carson Treadway, Oak Hill Middle School Savannah Zemonek, Oak Hill Middle School
These academic achievers will join 223 of their peers on June 13, 2023, at the West Virginia Culture Center in Charleston, WV to be officially honored as Knights of the Golden Horseshoe.
