BECKLEY (WVVA) - A teacher at a Raleigh County school has been fired following an investigation into allegations that she sent inappropriate text messages to a male student.

Lori Lester -- a teacher at Trap Hill Middle School -- was terminated by unanimous vote among school board members following a special-called hearing that was requested by Lester.

Lester was not present at the hearing. She was represented by an attorney.

Rick Snuffer, president of the Raleigh County Board of Education said he could not comment any further on Lester's case.

WVVA's Caroline Bach will have more on this story on WVVA News at Noon, 5 and 6.

In an unrelated matter, a hearing regarding alleged inappropriate behavior of a teacher/coach at Woodrow Wilson High School was postponed until next Wednesday.
