House Education Chairman steps down

CHARLESTON, W.Va. — House Education Chairman Danny Hamrick has resigned from that position.

Hamrick announced the resignation today in a two-paragraph letter to Speaker Roger Hanshaw. It indicates he still intends to serve in the Legislature.

Hamrick, R-Harrison, started as education chairman this year.

The Legislature is gearing up for a special session focusing on changes to the education system. Talk has focused on gathering for the session the third week of May.

A series of forums has been taking place all over the state, with the results expected next week.

Jared Hunt, a spokesman for the House of Delegates, said a new education chairman would be announced.

“The Speaker will appoint new leadership for the Education Committee in the coming days,” Hunt stated.

Responding to a followup question about the status of the vice chairman, Mark Dean, Hunt said Hamrick is the only change at this time.
