Final plans for GSC’s Alumni Day on April 28, 2012 have been made. All alumni and friends of the college are invited back to campus.
Several activities have been scheduled for throughout the day including a 1:00 p.m. baseball game at the Sue Morris Sports Complex (GSC vs. Ohio Valley) and a 3:00 p.m. music program (opera) in the Fine Arts Center. Additionally there will be an 11:00 a.m. Sand Volleyball tournament at the Sue Morris Sports Complex, this will continue well into the afternoon.
All activities on Saturday promise to be wonderful opportunities for everyone to socialize, reminisce, and re-establish contact with fellow alums and friends of Glenville State College that they haven’t seen in a while. The Alumni Center, open from noon – 4:30 p.m., will be headquarters for the day’s activities.
The College Bookstore will be open from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. for everyone to have an opportunity to find that special GSC souvenir and the Robert F. Kidd Library will be open during these hours as well. The perimeter doors of campus buildings will be unlocked during the afternoon, encouraging alums to tour the facilities. At some point during the afternoon, everyone will want to view the student art show in the Fine Arts Center’s Art Gallery as well.
The annual meet and greet social time for banquet attendees will be held in the pre-function area of the Alan B. Mollohan Campus Community Center from 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., followed by the alumni banquet at 6:00 p.m. in the ballroom. The evening’s spotlight at the banquet will be on the Alumni Association’s guests of honor: Alumna of the Year, Ann Starcher Green ’72; Alumni Achievement Award Recipient, Mark Romano ’92; Community Service Award Honoree, Jack Tanner ’64; Outstanding Teacher Award Recipient (Public Schools), Gregory Clark James ‘76; and Outstanding Young Alumna, Elizabeth “Lizzy” Long ’04 with the Posthumous Award being presented to the family of Elizabeth “Libby” Deitz, a former president of the college’s Alumni Association. Lizzy Long, Little Roy Lewis, and their band will be providing entertainment during the banquet.
Recognition will also be given that evening to outstanding Glenville State students who will receive GSC Foundation Academic Awards at the banquet. These academic awards are presented each year on the recommendations of faculty members from various departments with funds for these awards being provided by alumni and friends of Glenville State College.
