     Tolsia High JROTC Instructor Sargent Major Thomas Francis said, “I cannot be prouder of Tolsia High School JROTC Raider Teams that I am right now. They have diligently worked to hone their skills, condition their minds and strengthen their bodies to compete. It never ceases to amaze me as the smallest competing school, that Tolsia always seems to wind up on the top rung of the ladder. The first half of the Raider season winds down with Tolsia High as the number one ranked Raider team in the state of West Virginia.”

“Our state becomes stronger with each student that graduates high school college- and career-ready,” said West Virginia Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Steven Paine. “The high schools here today are celebrated for the hard work of the principals, educators, counselors, students and parents who understand the important step graduation is in a child’s future. All schools in the Mountain State, along with the Department of Education and Board of Education, have made it a top priority to ensure our students show up, work hard, earn a diploma and are ready to meet the future workforce needs of West Virginia.”

Of the 68 schools recognized, three schools achieved a graduation rate of 100 percent. Those schools are Paw Paw High School, Pickens Elementary/High School and Paden City High School.
