Welcome to CCAWV

Our mission is to "maintain a statewide agency for the purpose of promoting the interest and general welfare of local county government through a variety of communication tools; to represent county government before the West Virginia Legislature, administrative agencies, and the federal government; to educate the public about the value and need for county programs and services; and to facilitate the exchange of problems, ideas and solutions among county officials."

CCAWV Executive Director Vivian Parsons traveled to Williamson to personally present Aerianna and her teacher, Tonya Slone, with a certificate of recognition and cash prizes ($300 each for the lucky student and for her teacher). In a ceremony conducted at the Mingo County Courthouse, Vivian explained the judging process and congratulated Aerianna on behalf of the County Commissioners' Association. Aerianna then read her essay to the crowd assembled and answered questions for the local newspaper. Mingo County Commissioner Greg "Hootie" Smith praised the young wordsmith and thanked the County Commissioners' Association for sponsoring the contest. He announced that her essay will be posted in the courthouse as a way to educate others about county government. He also asked if she would be willing to return to Burch Middle School to read her essay to the younger students and share her passion for local government. Half-jokingly, he turned to Aerianna's younger brothers who were in attendance.

"You've got some big shoes to fill," he warned. The County Commissioners' Association would like to thank all the students who participated in the contest, and congratulate Aerianna once again for her fine work.
