FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The November issue of "Wonderful West Virginia" magazine features an article by a West Virginia University at Parkersburg student.
"Historic Parkersburg" was written by Jason Hall, a WVU Parkersburg English major. The article chronicles the colorful history of the Mid-Ohio Valley's largest city.
A 2002 graduate of Parkersburg Catholic High School, Hall has been interested in becoming a published, free-lance writer for some time. He contacted the magazine's editor with several story ideas before researching and writing the article in the current "Wonderful West Virginia" issue.
Hall is pursuing an associate in arts degree at WVU Parkersburg as a part-time student with the goal of becoming a novelist.
