MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - New School Superintendent Manny Arvon looked into the eyes of his father Monday night as he was sworn in.
When Arvon was growing up, he always dreamed about following his father's footsteps in public education, family members said.
Arvon's father, Manuel Arvon, worked in Boone County, W.Va., schools for 23 years, six of them as superintendent.
The story came full circle Monday night when Arvon's dad traveled from Boone County to swear in his son as the new superintendent of Berkeley County schools.
Even the same Bible was used when the senior Arvon was sworn in as Boone County superintendent in 1989 and 1992.
