The Glenville State College American Humanics and SIFE (Students in Free Enterprise) student organizations have recently teamed up with the Glenville Street Gang for the annual Spring Sweep and West Virginia Make it Shine citywide cleanup. The group swept the streets and sidewalks of downtown Glenville and also picked up trash along the way. The West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection provided trash bags and work gloves while the City of Glenville provided brooms, shovels, and wheel barrows.
“The students in the American Humanics program at Glenville State College live to make a difference in their communities. The Glenville Spring Sweep gave them a nice opportunity to make an impact even in the slightest way. We hope to make this a regular occurrence, in conjunction with local business owners of course, to keep Glenville shining brightly,” said GSC American Humanics Coordinator Meredith Gillett.
“There was a great turn out from both the college and the local community. We hope to participate in future Glenville Street Gang endeavors,” said GSC American Humanics Student Association President Matthew Thompson.
