    Southern West Virginia's only orchestra calls Mingo Central Comprehensive High School home. Led by veteran educator Laura Bobbera, the orchestra program at Mingo Central began when the state-of-the-art high school was opened in August 2011. In less than three years, students have become such proficient musicians that a string quartet was assembled and gave paid performances this past summer.

    Mingo County Schools will be out for the Christmas and New Year holidays beginning Monday, December 22, 2014, and returning Monday, January 5, 2015.
