US (WV): Greenhouse named after late Trinity teacher

A longtime Trinity teacher, councilman and school board member will be remembered at Trinity High School after the Randolph County Board of Education voted to name a building after him this week.
The board approved a request to name the new greenhouse building at Trinity High School after Paul Guthrie, whose time at the school was spent primarily as an agricultural teacher. Board chairman Gary Cook recalled his tenure as an educator and government official for his devotion to the youth of the community.

“He taught here forever and really made a positive impact on a lot of kids,” Cook said. “He was one of those ag teachers, doing it way back in the day before it was so much more popular like it is now.” Guthrie died Nov. 5, 2014, following a lengthy illness. A resident of Trinity from the time of his arrival in 1970, he served on the Randolph County School Board and Trinity City Council, as well as the Archdale-Trinity Chamber of Commerce. 

Among the many tributes paid to his memory, the Paul Guthrie Scholarship Fund at Trinity High School was set up in his honor. County staff and board members mentioned that there would be a ribbon-cutting ceremony scheduled for a later date, when his name will be added to the building.

Also during the January meeting, the board briefly addressed a resolution that was aimed to generate interest in doing away with isolation for non-positive students exposed to COVID-19. At its December meeting, the board approved a resolution with the stated intent to apply pressure on the state to end requirements for school principals to exclude exposed students from the classroom.
