Twenty years ago, probably 10 black students made up Musselman High School's minority population, according to a report on student enrollment. Today, the number of minorities is pushing 200. The question came up during the second annual South Berkeley Multicultural Fair Tuesday at Musselman. Black students still hold a slim lead with the highest number of minority students in the 1,500-student school in the southern end of Berkeley County, but Hispanics are pushing a very close second.

Musselman High School principal Holly M. Kleppner had “two pieces of advice” for the Class of 2012 before graduates received their diplomas Thursday night in the Butcher Center at Shepherd University. “No. 1 is to communicate,” Kleppner told members of the graduating class, her first as principal. “No. 2, surround yourself with positive influences.” Kleppner also encouraged the graduating class of 317 seniors to persevere, a characteristic of the group that she said she found to be “most exceptional” about them.

martinsburg@herald-mail.com INWOOD, W.Va. - And the band marched on ... in old uniforms that are hot, too few in number and that have been "patched and repatched," a parent of a Musselman High School marching band member said Monday night. Speaking to Berkeley County Board of Education members, Shelly Kesecker asked the board to come up with $40,000 to buy new band uniforms and three needed instruments - a tuba, a bassoon and a set of chimes.

INWOOD, W.Va. - Martha Grove already has some definite ideas about how she wants a new intermediate school in Inwood to be organized. Most importantly, Grove believes it should be a community-based school, offering more than an education to fourth- and fifth-grade students. There is no boys and girls club in the Inwood area, but the school could help fill the void by offering extracurricular programs to students on Friday evenings, said Grove, who was named principal of the new school last week.
