Linda Hoover has announced her bid for re-election to a seat on the Tyler County Board of Education. She is a lifelong resident of Tyler County and was educated in the Tyler County School system. Linda obtained her Undergraduate Degree in Elementary Education from West Liberty State College and then continued on to West Virginia University to complete her Masters Degree in Special Education.

Hoover and her husband Ron have raised three daughters, Dee Lowen and Robin Smith of Charleston, West Virginia and Jenny Hoover of Alma, West Virginia. These three ladies are also graduates of the Tyler County School system. She has four grandchildren.

Linda retired from the Tyler County School system in 2004 after 20 years of teaching. She now serves as President of the Tyler County Board of Education. Linda is an active member of her community. She is a member of Eastern Star, Valley Grange 519, attends Alma Ripley United Methodist Church, President of the Tyler County Solid Waste Authority, President of the Middle Island Health Clinic Board, Vice President of the Victory Cemetery Association, and Treasurer of the Alma Ripley United Methodist Parsonage.

During her tenure as a member of the Board of Education she has been instrumental in bringing new technology to our school system. In the near future, Tyler County will be moving forward with the construction of a new state of the art bus garage and Astroturf will be added to the football field. Linda states, “I feel that the knowledge and experiences I have gained as a member of the Tyler County Board of Education, teacher, and active church and community member gives me a good insight into the inner workings of our community and school system. I know the needs of the employees, students, and parents of Tyler County.”
