CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - The Executive Director of the West Virginia Education Association is retiring at the beginning of 2021.

The WVEA announced Tuesday that David Haney will retire on Jan. 1, 2021. Haney has been the executive director for 24 years and has served with the WVEA for over 40 years.

“David has been a tremendous asset to WVEA, and we greatly appreciate his hard work and commitment to public education as a whole and to all those who teach our students,” said WVEA President Dale Lee.
