4-3 vote: close Thaxton Elementary

    On a 4-3 vote, the Bedford County School Board voted to close another school at the end of this school year; Thaxton Elementary joins Body Camp Elementary as the two schools slated to close.

    Before a packed room at the School Board Office Conference Room—and to the dismay of the Thaxton supporters attending the meeting—board members Gary Hostutler, Julie Bennington, Dr. John Hicks and Richard Downey voted to close the school with Kelly Harmony, Jason Johnson and Kevin Willis voting against the motion.
