This collection includes a photograph of each GSC Pioneer Mascot, from the first one in 1933, to the present. When the tradition of the "Pioneer" began, a candidate had to be a male senior of good academic standing who had never lettered in any sport at Glenville. An election would be held by the entire student body with the purpose of selecting the "most popular" candidate. In 1933, Charles Barnett, had the distinction of becoming the first official Glenville "Pioneer." His duties were to participate in the Homecoming parade and to "rouse the spirit" of the student body in support of the football team at the Homecoming game. In the early years, the Pioneer rode in an ox-cart pulled by a team of yoked oxen in the parade. His regalia of a suit of buckskin, coonskin cap, muzzle loading rifle, and a jug has varied through the years, but the idea has remained the same. WWII made it necessary to cancel the Homecoming activities until the fall of 1946. Glenville has had two women serve as "Pioneers" in 1990-91 and 1993-94. A framed collection of GSC Pioneers now hangs on a wall in the Physical Education Building (on the second floor landing).
