For the duration of this week, West Point will be hit by an extraordinary cold spell. Monday’s highs were in the mid 20s with lows in the single digits with similarly cold conditions expected for the next few days. With that, it’s imperative that individuals be wary of certain elements while trying to stay warm throughout the week.
“This is probably the coldest temperatures we’ve had in years,” said West Point Fire Department Chief Johnny Littlefield. “I can’t remember it being this cold with the windchill the way it is.”

As president, McKee will be responsible for overseeing regularly scheduled board meetings.
