GLENVILLE, WV—Ginny Yeager has retired from Glenville State College where she worked for 11 years. Yeager, a native of Frametown (Braxton County), West Virginia, began working at GSC in September of 2002 as a staff librarian and her retirement became effective on July 12, 2013.
“I have truly enjoyed working at GSC. I hope I have been a help to many of our students, faculty, staff and community members,” said Yeager
“We were saddened when Ginny decided to retire as she has been such an asset to the library and campus for over ten years. She has always given so much of herself to the library especially in regard to patron information needs. Fortunately, she has decided to continue providing us with her reference expertise and extreme knowledge of the local area by continuing to work part-time,” said GSC Library Director Gail Westbrook.
Yeager received a lifetime pass to GSC sporting events and a commemorative mirror from GSC President Dr. Peter Barr. After retirement, Yeager plans to continue to work at the Robert F. Kidd Library as a part-time employee until a new staff librarian is hired. Yeager would also like to organize a ‘Friends of the RFK Library’ group which might consist of alumni and community members willing to assist with functions or special projects.
Yeager graduated from GSC in 1975 and went on to get her Master of Library and Science Information (MLIS) from the University of South Carolina in 2000. She enjoys reading and sewing. Yeager also looks forward to spending more time in Florida visiting with her children, grandchildren, and friends along with working on projects at her home in Glenville.
