Board Expels One At Hundred
A male student at Hundred High School was expelled for 12 calendar months Nov. 20 for allegedly making terrorist threats at the school earlier this month. A unanimous vote at a special meeting of the Wetzel County Board of Education followed a closed hearing at which the student testified in his own behalf. He was accompanied at the meeting by his legal guardian. The expulsion was the seventh of the 2008-09 school year and follows two others approved at a special board meeting Nov. 6. Expulsions in this young school year already have exceeded 60 percent of those imposed during the entire previous year. Details of the allegations were referred to Wetzel County Prosecuting Attorney Tim Haught, who was present at the meeting. Also present were HHS Principal Sam Snyder and West Virginia State Police Cpl. Bill Henderson. The student will continue to receive educational services at a location other than the high school.
