Mountain State U. sells aircraft, assesses assets

BECKLEY (AP) — Mountain State University has sold its two aircraft and is assessing other properties ahead of its scheduled closure in December.

Interim President Richard Sours tells The Register-Herald ( ) that the university sold a small single-engine airplane and a twin-engine corporate airplane several weeks ago.

Sour’s says the president’s home and other assets aren’t currently on the market and there’s no current plan to sell the Martinsburg Mall.

In June, the Higher Learning Commission revoked the private Beckley-based school’s accreditation because of leadership, organizational and integrity issues. The accreditation later was extended to Dec. 31.

The University of Charleston took over Mountain State’s campuses in Beckley and Martinsburg so students can complete their degrees.

Sours says UC has indicated that it wants to fully occupy the Beckley campus in January.
