Mountwest Community and Technical College will be closed on Friday, July 2nd, 2010 in observance of the passing of West Virginia Senator Robert C. Byrd.

“Senator Byrd was a strong supporter of education and was unwavering in his commitment in promoting college access across West Virginia. With appreciation and respect for Senator Byrd’s legacy, Mountwest Community & Technical College will be closed Friday, July 2, 2010 so that our students and employees will have the opportunity to remember and celebrate the life of our state’s senior senator,” said Dr. Keith Cotroneo, President of Mountwest.

West Virginia Governor Joe Manchin issued an Executive Order declaring the day to be a special day of observance in remembrance of Senator Byrd. Mountwest joins state government and other West Virginia institutions in honoring Senator Byrd’s memory.
