GLENVILLE, WV—Glenville State College President Dr. Peter Barr and his wife Betsy invite GSC faculty, staff, students, and local residents to the eighth annual GSC Tree Lighting Ceremony. The event will take place on Monday, December 2nd at 4:30 in the Luanna T. Smith Amphitheatre. Festivities will continue at 5:00 p.m. on the Mollohan Campus Community Center third floor with Santa and Mrs. Claus who will pose for pictures with the kids. Light refreshments will also be served.
“My wife Betsy started this tradition when we came to Glenville in 2006. It has been exciting to see more and more kids each year at the tree lighting. We love to see the kids in the community grow up and lose their fear of telling Santa Claus their biggest wishes,” said Dr. Barr.
This event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact the GSC President’s Office at (304) 462-4110.
