Since the 1950s, Wayne County voters have continuously supported the excess levy, which is renewed every five years. This levy does not raise taxes , but simply continues the rate that has been in place. This levy supports several organizations in the county, including the WVU Wayne County Extension Office. Early voting starts April 25 and runs through May 5, 2018. Voting day is May 8, 2018.

Sincere Thanks to Reality Store Volunteers

Ceredo-Kenova Middle School was host to a Reality Store on April 16, 2018. Reality Store is a financial simulation that allows students a glimpse into the future to see what bills, expenses and life in general will look like when they are 25 years old. This program requires over 20 volunteers and we would like to thank them for their dedication and commitment to this program!

Two more Reality Store programs are scheduled for this spring with the Fort Gay 8th grade class on May 15 and with Vinson 7th and 8th grade classes on June 5.  Email Julie Tritz, 4-H Extension Agent, to learn about you can participate in this unique opportunity.
