First lady Cathy Justice will host a reception at the opening on Tuesday to launch the display, which will remain in the Rotunda through Friday.

The pieces will be moved Monday to the West Virginia State Culture Center, where they will remain on display through Oct. 29.

Communities in Schools says on its website it is a national program designed to help remove barriers for students at risk of dropping out by bringing community resources into schools.
