Glenville, WV–Final plans for this year’s Glenville State College Alumni Day on April 27, 2013 have been made. All alumni and friends of the college are invited back to campus. Those coming back to Glenville the evening before and those living within driving distance to campus may want to take advantage of GSC’s spring band concert, under the direction of Professor Lloyd Bone at 7:00 p.m. on Friday evening, April 26th in the GSC Fine Arts Auditorium. Tickets may be purchased at the door.
On Saturday, several activities have been scheduled for throughout the day, including a WVIAC Track & Field Championship Meet at Morris Stadium and a 3:00 p.m. Senior Recital in the fine arts auditorium.
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 until 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. on Saturday 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 GSC Fine Arts Center’s Spears 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 banquet spotlight will be on the Alumni Association’s guests of honor: Alumnus of the Year, Michael T. Rust ’73; Alumni Achievement Award Recipient, Coach David Walker ’87; Community Service Award Honoree, Helen Radcliff James ’44; Outstanding Teacher Award Recipient (Public Schools), Tabatha Logan Beall ’92; and Outstanding Young Alumna Rebekah Long ’08. The spotlight will also be upon the families of Dr. Lloyd H. Elliott ’37 and Mr. Damon West ’47 as these two gentlemen are honored posthumously. Rebekah Long will be joining Alumnus Buddy Griffin ’71 and Alumna Megan Murphy Darby ’11 for some music entertainment at the end of the banquet, which will cap off the evening’s program.
The GSC Alumni Center will be open for more fellowship/social time following the banquet and Rumble on the Hill will be held that night in the Physical Education Building’s Jesse Lilly Gymnasium.
For planning purposes, prior reservations at $20.00 each are required for banquet attendees. Contact the Glenville State College Alumni Office at (304) 462-4122 (local) or (866) 239-0285 (toll free) for more information about Alumni Day activities and to make your banquet reservation(s).
