CHARLESTON –AFT-West Virginia President Fred Albert lauded Governor Jim Justice’s Proclamation to declare September 20th as School Service Personnel Day in West Virginia and released the following statement:

“I am pleased that Governor Justice issued a proclamation to honor our state’s school service personnel. Our dedicated service personnel provide vital services to our children and we could not run our school systems without them. For many children, our hard-working service personnel are the first people who greet them in the morning, whether it be on the bus or serving breakfast in the school cafeteria.  They keep our offices running smoothly, ensure our facilities are clean and well- maintained and provide critical assistance to our special needs students.  It truly takes a village to educate and nurture our students, and our state’s school service personnel are a essential part of the village. AFT-West Virginia appreciates the important role our service personnel have in providing a high-quality public education and join the Governor in honoring them on September 20th.”
