BCHS principal discusses next school term improvements

By Shirley Shuman
Less than a year ago, Tony Minney was beginning his first year as principal at Braxton County High School. Discussing the challenges he faced at that time, including the fact that the high school had been designated a “priority school” by the State Department, he maintained he was ready for the job. Recently, he gave an overview of what he, along with his staff, has accomplished.
Some of those accomplishments cover corrections of mistakes and omissions which had been made at the high school in recent years. Others which Principal Minney named come in preparation for the evaluation which will occur during the early part of the 2015-2016 school term. These include changes which the principal says would be occurring even if the school were not facing the OPEA evaluation.
