Glenville, WV – Representatives from both Glenville State College and Gilmer County Schools are planning to hold a joint press conference on Tuesday, September 25th at 10:00 a.m. at Gilmer County High School. The purpose of the press conference is to announce the funding of two new scholarships that will allow eight students to attend GSC every year.
The Ernest L. Arbuckle Gilmer County Scholarship as well as the Espy W. Miller and Rosalea Poling Miller Scholarship will not only provide the recipients with full tuition, but they will also cover the costs of fees and textbooks.
GSC President Peter Barr, GSC Vice President for College Advancement and GSC Foundation Executive Director Dennis Pounds, GSC Language and Literature Department Chair Wayne de Rosset, GCHS Principal Nasia Butcher, and Gilmer County Superintendent of Schools Ron Blankenship are among those expected to be in attendance.
President Barr said, “This good news represents a great day in higher education. This generous support from private donors will result in more college graduates in West Virginia in the future.”
Pounds said, “At at a time when state support is being decreased, or attempts to do so are in motion, this is a positive step to keep access to higher education open to area students.”
