Potomac State College of West Virginia University celebrated its 115th birthday on Monday, Feb. 15, 2016. The campus community was treated to cupcakes in recognition of this milestone. The College was created on Feb. 15, 1901 as The Keyser Preparatory Branch of West Virginia University by an act of the legislature. The bill’s passage came at the urging of Mineral County Delegate Francis M. Reynolds who was concerned about the quality of the secondary education in the area.
