  1. It’s a fine project that I’m very proud to be a part of. I thank Dr. Marlen Elliot Harrison, the Smithsonian, the U.S. Postal Service and all others for this grand opportunity to work with you and be a part of this wonderful project! I feel so lucky to have been chosen to do research on the Cove Station Post Office Mural Weirton WV, because I grew up near Weirton in a town called Wellsburg which is in Brooke County. Weirton is where I once lived, worked, had children born there and earned an associate degree in criminal justice while attending West Virginia Northern Community College (WVNCC). Once again, thank you.
