On January 28, 2016, BAES staff and students attended Kids Day at the WV Legislature. Students had the opportunity to observe the WV Senate in session and tour the Capitol Building. BAES has been nominated for in the WV Shared Use Award which is based on how the school makes itself available for community use in the after school hours. BAES students were invited to visit the Legislature as representatives of the wonderful relationship BAES has with our community members. Ms. Tanya Zickefoose, BAES Counselor, completed the nomination and has addressed WV Senators regarding the importance of schools receiving financial support in order to update school facilities so that they are accessible and available to community organizations.
