Welcome to the Office of Secretary of Education
and the Arts!
you visit our site, you will see that through our office, our six divisions,
and several varied programs, we enhance the lives of West Virginians by
providing promoting, and protecting resources that strengthen our communities
and reinforce our state’s rich culture and artistic heritage.
West Virginia Public Broadcasting
and the West Virginia Division of Culture
and History, we share the stories of the Mountain State and entice people
to explore our art, culture and heritage. The West Virginia Library Commission, Rehabilitation Services and the Center for Professional Development focus on the education
resources that serve our diverse population. Volunteer West Virginia engages West Virginians through service
opportunities within our state that make a difference in their personal lives
and in the quality of life for all of our children and families.
I am honored to promote our six agencies and the many fine programs we
represent. Within the Office of Secretary of Education and the Arts, our
combined staffs are proud of our heritage, excited about our future, and ready
to make certain that everyone who reaches out to us will receive the resources
they need and the services that will enrich their communities.
Come on in!
