Interactive State Seal of WV Displayed at Doddridge County High School

An interactive "State Seal of West Virginia" made an appearance Thursday at Doddridge County High School.

The Secretary of State's office commissioned the display to celebrate the state's 150th birthday. 

Doddridge County resident Joseph H Diss Debar designed the seal in 1863 and representatives from the Secretary of State's office said its design still has meaning today.

"What Debar put on the seal in 1863 is still true today. You still have the coal miner represents energy production, still true today and you have the farmer representing agriculture which is also still true today so I think it is amazing that 150 years ago...he nailed it," said Jake Glance.

Representatives from the Secretary of State's office also spent the morning helping students register to vote.
