West Virginia governor appoints Gabriel and Stansbury to State Board of Education

CHARLESTON, W.Va. – Gov. Jim Justice announced recently that he has appointed Victor L. Gabriel and Dr. Christopher A. Stansbury to the West Virginia State Board of Education.

He currently resides in Bridgeport.

Dr. Stansbury will fill the seat vacated by Miller Hall, following his resignation from the board. He will complete Hall’s term, which is set to expire in November 2028.

Dr. Stansbury is a Charleston native and a graduate of West Virginia University and the Southern College of Optometry. He is a co-founder and partner at West Virginia Eye Consultants, an optometry/ophthalmology group based in Charleston with 6 locations that serve southern West Virginia and the tri-state area.
