The Golden Horseshoe test is completed by more than 22,000 8th grade students across the state of West Virginia. The exam covers the history, geography, economy and government of our Mountain State. It is known for being very rigorous and comprehensive. Braden W is one of only 221 students who earned the honor this year. He will be formally inducted as a member of the Knights of the Golden Horseshoe at the Capitol in Charleston later this spring.
