Holly Ridpath

Nominated by her first grade student, Holly Ridpath is a beloved teacher at Ronceverte Elementary School. A school she attended as a child.

“Her math is good. Plus we like her chairs. Actually, she makes us all feel special,” says her young student.

Teaching is not for the faint of heart, especially in today’s world. Educators are asked to be teachers, nurses, counselors, caregivers, and social workers all while managing a classroom full of children. And each day, they do it with love.

For her absolute commitment to the well being of each of her students, her patience in the classroom, and her attention to detail with every student’s needs, we are proud to name Holly Ridpath as the certified Real West Virginian of the Week on January 9, her birthday! Happy birthday, Mrs. Ridpath!
