CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — Gov. Jim Justice has appointed a doctor to the state board of education.

The Republican governor announced Wednesday that Daniel Snavely will fill a vacant seat on the nine-member board.

He says Snavely works as the medical director at St. Mary’s Regional Wound Center and as an interventional cardiologist at Huntington Internal Medicine Group.

Justice says Snavely spends spare time as part of the volunteer faculties of the Marshall University School of Medicine and the West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine.

Snavely is replacing Joseph Wallace, who resigned last month. His term is set to expire in November 2024.

He graduated from the West Virginia University School of Medicine and Marshall University.
