GSC Campus Receives More Greenery

The Glenville State College Student Government Association (SGA) and the Glenville State College Foundation have teamed-up to help beautify the GSC Campus.

Tree Planting

The new trees, shrubs, and flowers, valued at $2,000, were purchased from Lowe’s at a seventy-five percent discount. The purchase was primarily financed by the SGA in partnership with the GSC Foundation.

Several of the trees, shrubs and flowers have been planted at the entrance to the GSC nature trail and cemetery. This is a continuing upgrade to the area that has been so successfully undertaken by the Gilmer County Historical Society.

“The SGA feels that it is important for us to help the campus and the community. This project allows us to aid in the clean-up and beautification of Glenville State College. It is part of an effort for us to be more environmentally friendly,” said SGA President Marlon Henry, a senior from Montrose, West Virginia majoring in Natural Resource Management.

The remainder of the foliage that was purchased will be temporarily planted near the GSC greenhouse, and then replanted around campus in the spring.
