Glenville, W.Va. – The Glenville State College Baseball and Softball teams have partnered up for what they are calling ‘The Pioneer Project.’
The Pioneer Project is designed to put forth 1,500 hours bettering the Glenville community while teaching student-athletes the value of making a difference. “As we better our programs from a win and loss perspective, and raise our respective grade point averages in the classroom, we believe teaching our student-athletes to give back in the community will give our program complete purpose,” stated Head Baseball Coach Jimmy Mullins.
Together, the two teams plan to read to elementary school students, speak at area schools, keep roads clean by picking up trash, plant flowers throughout Glenville and surrounding communities, and donate to the underprivileged.
“We plan on putting these service hours back into our communities during the 2015-16 academic year. We want to use this as a resource to better our community and to teach our college athletes the value of making a difference,” said Head Softball Coach Kristen Tunno.
