Kanawha Circuit Judge Joanna Tabit ruled the state’s Hope Scholarship unconstitutional in July leaving many students in limbo and their parents struggling to determine how to pay for educational choices that were made based upon the Hope Scholarship program.
Riley Moore, WV State Treasurer announced in May more than 3,000 students had been approved for the program. The scholarship was to have provided nearly $4,300 for 2022-2023 school year.
