GLENVILLE, WV—Robert ‘Goat’ Hensley, a junior from Dundalk, Maryland, has been named the Glenville State College Pioneer Mascot for the 2014-2015 school year.
“I am very excited to be the new mascot, this is a great honor for me and I cannot wait to get out there and get the crowds motivated while continuing pioneer traditions and possibly coming up with some new ones,” said Hensley.
During his time at GSC Hensley has become the President of the GSC Science Fiction & Fantasy Guild, played the lead in a GSC Theatre production as well as several other acting roles, and has become a tutor for the GSC Student Support Services. Out of all of these though, Hensley says that his greatest accomplishment is the amount of friends that he has made while attending Glenville State College.
“I am so excited to have Robert as our Pioneer for the 2014-15 school year here at Glenville State College. His energy and involvement on campus are actually what the campus and community need. From clubs to plays to concerts to football games you always see him in attendance. He truly is a Pioneer,” said Dean of Student Life Duane Chapman.
As the GSC Pioneer, Hensley will attend GSC football and basketball games, tournaments, and other school events. The Pioneer is charged with working with GSC students, faculty, and staff to positively promote and support the college. The official uniform of the GSC Pioneer mascot is a set of buckskins, a coonskin hat, and a musket. Hensley becomes the 75th student to portray the Pioneer Mascot since the tradition began during the 1933-34 school year.
