GRAFTON – Beverly Keener, the North Central WV Regional Tobacco Prevention Coordinator /Tobacco Treatment Specialist appeared before the Taylor County Commission during its last meeting. Keener’s appearance before the commission was in support of the “Save Face, Stop Spit Tobacco” program.

Keener was joined by Taylor County Middle School guidance counselor and RAZE coordinator, Mrs. Merrifield. Merrifield explained to the commission that she works with the RAZE program to tear down the deadly habit, smokeless tobacco.

The commission unanimously voted to sign the proclamation.
