GLENVILLE, WV—Students in Glenville State College’s theatre group are gearing up for ‘Antigone,’ their first production of the spring semester. The show will take place on Thursday, February 26th, Friday, February 27th, and Saturday, February 28th in the Heflin Administration Building Presidents Auditorium at 7:00 p.m. General admission is $3.00 and is free for GSC students with a valid ID.

“A modern adaptation of the ancient Greek tragedy of the same name, Antigone was written by French playwright Jean Anouilh in 1942, and first performed in Paris in 1944. The English translation was written by Barbara Bray. This is a play about what is sacred, what needs to be defended, and what should be done to defend it. It is also about truly defending what you believe in, to the death,” said GSC Professor of Communications and Theatre Director Dennis Wemm.

Cast members for the performance include: Victoria Guillory from Harpers Ferry (Jefferson County), West Virginia as the narrator; Mary Lewis from Harpers Ferry (Jefferson County), West Virginia as Antigone; Lindsey ‘Luna’ Acree from Ripley (Jackson County), West Virginia as Ismene; Neysa Brown from Alum Bridge (Lewis County), West Virginia as the nurse; Andrew Mattox from Pineville (Wyoming County), West Virginia as Haemon; Travis ‘Tyler’ Hammack from Spencer (Roane County), West Virginia as Creon; Francois Scarboro from Cheverly, Maryland as Creon’s personal secretary; Katie Miller from Gassaway (Braxton County), West Virginia as Eurydice; Sarah Ann Tresize from Haywood (Harrison County), West Virginia as Jonas; Jeremiah Underwood from Summersville (Nicholas County), West Virginia as Binns; Cody Mullens from Calvin (Nicholas County), West Virginia as Snout; Ryan Helmick from Grafton (Taylor County), West Virginia as Wedge; and Brittany Robinson from Mabie (Randolph County), West Virginia as the messenger.

While the subject matter is serious, parents should find no issues with language or content for younger children. However, the play does contain moments of violence. For more information, contact Wemm at Dennis.Wemm@glenville.edu or (304) 462-6323.

GSC’s Dr. Joe Evans Inducted into Hall of Fame

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: January 29, 2015

For More Information:
Glenville State College
Public Relations Department
(304) 462-4115

GLENVILLE, WV – Glenville State College Professor of Physical Science, Dr. Joe Evans, was inducted into the West Virginia University College of Education and Human Services (CEHS) Hall of Fame at a reception held recently in Morgantown. The Hall of Fame recognizes and honors alumni and other individuals who have significantly contributed to the vision and mission of the CEHS and/or who have distinguished themselves in their chosen fields, disciplines, positions, or occupations.

“Receiving the recognition was a humbling experience,” said Evans. “Recommendations for the honor were provided by both fellow graduate students and former professors from forty years ago; all of them individuals for whom I have the utmost respect. The experience was humbling yet exhilarating as the realization slowly materialized that I must do more to validate that I am worthy of the honor,” he added.

Evans, who has worked at Glenville State College since 1970, says that he has enjoyed working with colleagues who were always acting in the best interest of the college and students who were seeking opportunities which would lead to a better life. “I have been blessed working at GSC. I have had the opportunity to provide support in many administrative assignments but I have always been fortunate enough to be able to return to the classroom. The classroom is my true love. Even after 45 years, boredom never occurs. Though the content may be the same; every student is new and unique,” said Evans.

During his time at GSC, he has taught science and prepared college students for careers in elementary and secondary school settings, as well as having prepared students to work in science-related jobs.

In the 1970s Evans served on the West Virginia State Department of Education Science Committee, bringing expertise in developing physics and chemistry essentials, using the scientific process, and raising scientific awareness. From that time to the present, he has continually been involved in the development of state standards and processes for evaluating those standards.

“I have had the opportunity to study at many colleges and universities:  Glenville State College, The Ohio State University, Cornell University, Earlham College in Indiana, Atlanta University in Atlanta, Georgia, Penn State University, West Virginia University, and the University of Dayton. I had great experiences at every one of the schools; however, the two most enjoyable for me were Glenville State and West Virginia University.  At most of the schools, I perceived the faculty and the student body to be two distinct groups:  the faculty provided instruction and the students attempted to learn the information. At GSC and WVU, I perceived the faculty and the student body as one:  they were partners in the learning community,” Evans said.

Both science and teaching careers run in the family. His son Dr. Kevin Evans is a chemistry professor at GSC and his daughter Kimberly Hoffman is a biology/chemistry teacher. His son-in-law works as a chemist in Tennessee, his daughter-in-law is an English teacher, and some of his grandchildren have even chosen science and engineering paths in college.

“I am blessed with a loving and supporting family. Frequently, my wife June and two children, Kimberly and Kevin, were asked to make sacrifices so I could provide additional classroom time and attention to students who had the drive to achieve but came to the college underprepared. Ironically, both children pursued teaching careers in the sciences,” said Evans.

Evans also was honored in 2002 with the Curtis Elam Professor of Teaching Excellence from his alma mater. After teaching at Glenville State College for almost 45 years he said, “I have often been asked why I don’t retire. But when one receives so much pleasure from working with students and challenging them to strive harder and to reach a little higher, why would one want to quit?”

The recognition by WVU has also prompted Evans to be recognized during Glenville State College’s upcoming Alumni Banquet on Saturday, April 25th. He will be honored with the Alumni Association’s Alumnus Achievement Award, which is given to an alumnus who has been recognized by another group or individual for a similar honor within the past three years. The award can also recognize individuals who have distinguished themselves in their chosen profession.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:  February 12, 2015

For More Information:
Glenville State College
Public Relations Department
(304) 462-4115

GLENVILLE, WV – Delta Education, a business that believes in the importance of inquiry-based, hands-on science teaching methods, is sponsoring two free presentations at Glenville State College for current and future educators, school administrators, and the general public.

The Full Option Science System (FOSS) is Delta Education’s flagship K-8 curriculum program.  Developed at the University of California at Berkeley, it has become the most widely used elementary school hands-on science curriculum in the United States and will be featured in one of the presentations. Both workshops will take place on Wednesday, February 25th at GSC in the Mollohan Campus Community Center Ballroom.

The two presentations will discuss the integration of the FOSS program into West Virginia’s Next Generation Education Standards and the ways elementary school students learn.

Former classroom teacher, Kip Bisignano, will present the first workshop from 1:00-4:00 p.m. on February 25th, focusing on science-centered language development and communication. Participants will engage in hands-on science activities and learn about strategies, instructional routines, and scaffolds that support all domains of West Virginia’s Next Generation Standards for English Language Arts (ELA). Participants also will receive resources and strategies to integrate ELA and science. Bisignano’s workshop is geared toward public school administrators, elementary and middle school administrators and teachers, and university faculty and pre-service teachers. Attendance is capped at 48 people and reservations are required.

World-renowned neuroscientist Dr. Kenneth Wesson will present the second workshop from 6:00-8:00 p.m.; discussing the neuroscience of learning, early brain development, design and engineering, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, & Math) and STREAM (Science, Technology, Reading, Engineering, Arts, & Math), contextual learning, and curriculum development. This presentation is appropriate for pre-service and in-service teachers and administrators of all grade levels, as well as the general public. Attendance is capped at 120 and reservations also are required.

“These workshops will both be excellent. Dr. Wesson is a world-renowned neuroscientist who has focused primarily on learning processes and the human brain. We are pleased that he and Mr. Bisignano will be presenting their engaging and informative lectures at Glenville State College,” said GSC Professor of Physical Science Dr. Joe Evans.

Both events are being presented through the generosity of Delta Education. For more information or to register, contact Evans at Joe.Evans@glenville.edu or (304) 462-6314. If you send an e-mail or leave a voice message, please indicate if you plan to attend the first, second, or both presentations.
