LINN, West Virginia — School officials are preparing to open West Virginia's first inter-county school.

Leading Creek Elementary School is located in Linn near the Gilmer-Lewis county line. The $10 million school consolidates Alum Bridge Elementary School in Lewis County and Troy Elementary School in Gilmer County.

Leading Creek principal Kim Freeland says she looks forward to bringing the communities together and creating a new school family.

Classes begin Aug. 13. Leading Creek will have about 240 students.
