“It’s a tremendous honor and privilege to be re-elected to continue fighting for education employees and advocating for public education. I know how hard our members work, and how much they care about the students they serve, and I promise to invest just as much heart and soul into representing them as they do into West Virginia’s children,” remarked AFT-WV President Fred Albert after his re-election.
