Two Doddridge County Middle school students recently learned that that they were selected as ladies of the Golden Horseshoe Society. Makenna Curran and Karlee Jozwick, Doddridge County Middle School eighth graders, join an elite group of West Virginians. Alan Snodgrass, the pair’s eighth grade Social Studies teacher, said “I am beyond thrilled for Makenna and Karlee to win the Golden Horseshoe this year. These two students exemplify the rigor to be successful in their academics and do so with a positive attitude and full potential. I am very proud of their efforts and hope they never forget this prestigious award.” The Golden Horseshoe Test has been administered in West Virginia each year since 1931 and is the longest running program of its kind in any state. The top-scoring students in each county receive the prestigious award and are inducted as “knights” and “ladies” of the Golden Horseshoe Society. The winners receive a Golden Horseshoe pin to commemorate their achievement.
Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, an optional knighting ceremony will take place when the WVDE deems it is safe during the 2020-2021 school year.
