CHARLESTON -- West Virginia Attorney General Darrell McGraw has selected Reva Mickey to serve on his Citizens Advisory Committee.
Mickey has been involved with many activities and outreach programs. She was a recipient of the 2004 West Virginia Conservation Farm of the Year Award, 2004 West Virginia Environmental Award, and the 2010 West Virginia Democrat of the Year. Mickey has been a member of the Advisory Council Teen Court, member of the WV State Democratic Executive Committee and Chairwoman for the Jefferson County Democratic Executive Committee.
Created by McGraw in 2007, the Citizens Advisory Committee reaches out to communities throughout the state to provide personalized access to consumer protection resources for all West Virginians. It offers consumers with questions and complaints the opportunity for direct contact with a representative of the Attorney General's Office.
"Outreach and education is a primary function of my Consumer Advocates," McGraw said. "Members of the Citizens Advisory Committee provide communities with a direct, open channel of communication to those Consumer Advocates and thus helps to spread that outreach and education to their neighborhoods.
"Our office is more productive and helpful to the public when we have individuals on our committee who are strong voices within communities around the state."
Mickey has spent 40 years in the public school system where she held positions as a counselor, teacher, and reading specialist. She also directed workshops in parenting skills and problem identification and anti-bullying.
Mickey holds both a Masters and Bachelors of Science degree from West Virginia University and has earned many postgraduate hours from James Madison, Virginia and William & Mary.
