Best Educated? How many years of classroom teaching does your boy have?

Jenni-fare, Let me get this straight. We have a guy who is doing a GREAT JOB as a principal of one of the largest high schools in the state, making all kind of progress with students and teachers alike, so we make him an "ASST" Supt? Name me the last 3 ASST SUPT in Marshall County. Name me the last 3 JMHS principals. What's more important to "the children"? I'm doing you a favor Jen. If DYINGOV is still reading this , he'd be a lot harder on you. IMO it looks like MISTER Murphy realized how hard being a principal is, and no, I don't blame him for it, and I applaud your loyalty.

Varner is a politician, all lies. He thought the job was his, are we shocked? Does the job go to the person who has worked in the county the longest or to the person that is the most educated all around the board? Bottom, line...Murph was picked, not because of favortism.

The list....did you happen to hear Bloomdaddy? I'd be surprised if you haven't, but if not check it out. The list is on there.

Varner is a grad from Wetzel County and was in House for 18 years, my bad! Varner's wife Suzanne Yanni is the daughter of Albert Yanni, former delegate and MC shop teacher....

The list?????

I believe Scott is from Triadelphia, maybe? Not sure. I'm also still waiting for a list of Murph's accomplishments.

Truth is Mr. Hince had a huge say in who would be assistant super. He chose Mr. Murphy over Mr. Varner. And Mr. Varner is highly overrated. At election time, vote for some new blood please!

karensue, Scotty was finally exposed when he decided not to run for WV House. The candidates were trying to figure out how he was elected 7 times in Marshall County and they could not find record of any legislation that he sponsored!

Jennifer, still waiting for that list....

Karen Sue, Why did you have to bring up DYINGOV's favorite politician/educator? LOL

How about the white elephant in the room?? Scott Varner, who THOUGHT he was getting the job!! Leave it to the Marshall Co BOE to hire a Wheeling Central graduate over someone educated in the public school system with years of Vocational experience. Wheeling Central grads will be lined up to get jobs in Marshall County now under the new personnel director! What does it say when Marshall Co continues to hire parochial and out of state graduates?? Marling, a Bishop grad will probably be next principal after Murph takes Brainless Berner to the county office with him.

"Officers located the vehicle in front of Murphy's home on Laurel Avenue. Murphy was in the driver's seat and Haines was in the passenger seat, the report states. Both Murphy and Haines reportedly smelled of alcohol.

Murphy initially told officers he was driving the vehicle before changing his story and saying neither had been driving. Murphy failed a field sobriety test at the scene."

Public Intoxication and telling the police no one was driving the vehicle.....

Is Corey Murphy related to Ohio County Magistrate Patty Murphy?

You'll have to take up "DUI= promotion" with another poster on here, who is probably waiting for the accomplishments also. I just feel the final results of the incident should be known by the tax paying public. Seems as it would be fair to both Mr. Murphy and those paying his salary.

Don't assume you know the legal outcome if you don't. "DUI's = Promotion"??? Last time I checked there was one person charged with DUI and it wasn't Murphy. Know your facts before you start your gossip!

Sarah Harmon: I've read this article a couple times. Why isn't there a mention of WHY the 3 board members voted YES, and WHY Mr. Miller abstained? Wouldn't it be part of good journalism to do so? ....Also I don't think the tax paying public was ever informed of the 2 state paid employees legal results in their incident last year. Finally Jennifer doesn't "Murphy" deserve the respect to have MR put in front of his name?

Jennifer, please tell us the accomplishments of Murphy at JMHS. From what I heard today, the teachers there are happy to be rid of him. Many of the students think he's a joke.

Jennifer sayz, "It's a shame that people continue to harp on this incident and not recognize his achievements and all that he has done for JM and the community."

Please post a list of all the accomplishments! Thanks!!

To All Murphy Haters - FYI...the incident in November was caused by another individual, who was charged. Murphy was simply in the wrong place at the wrong time being a friend with no knowledgle of the foolish act performed by his "friend." Follow up on HIS status: his ONLY charge, failing to produce his license, was dropped. It's a shame that people continue to harp on this incident and not recognize his achievements and all that he has done for JM and the community.

Over 100 years later Mark Twain's opinion about School Boards still holds true in Marshall County.

Murphy is a joke. It makes me wonder what the board members are thinking. They should be ashamed. Our poor kids.

In other business, the board also "approved the hiring of John Marshall High School Principal Corey Murphy as the new assistant superintendent of schools following the first executive session of the evening."

What ever happened with his criminal charges?????
