GLENVILLE, WV – Approximately 350 freshmen arrived on campus at Glenville State College on Friday, August 15th for the 2014 fall term. Glenville State College’s class of 2018 is made up of students from throughout West Virginia, nine other states, and the District of Columbia.

Orientation and social events were provided to the new Pioneers throughout the weekend to ease the transition into student life at GSC.

Cameron Fowler and his mother Lana Bragg came from Summersville on Friday morning to start his Pioneer experience. Fowler credited the many helpers who were on hand to help him move into Goodwin Hall. His mom also was positive about the next step in her son’s life. “I’m so proud to see him starting college,” she said.

Faculty and staff continued the time-honored tradition of assisting the new students to move-in. “Move-In Day can be overwhelming for new students and their families. We all enjoy this opportunity to help our Pioneers in any way that we can; more importantly, we make our faces known and get to know some of the class of 2018,” said GSC Admissions Counselor Trae Sprague.

Parents and families of the new Pioneers also had an opportunity to meet GSC President and Mrs. Barr when they held a session for parents to inform them about what GSC offers students and the unique point-of-view of the presidential couple. “You can make a difference in their successes – they won’t always tell you that – but you can,” Betsy Barr told parents. “We feel that Glenville State is a very caring community and we’re glad that you and your student chose us,” continued President Barr.

On Sunday, August 18th a Pioneer Picnic & Community Fair allowed community businesses, churches, and organizations to set up displays to introduce and promote themselves to the new students. The event also was an opportunity for the new Pioneers to learn what the community has to offer them during their time at Glenville State College.

Upperclassmen returned to campus on Sunday, and fall semester classes started at 8:00 a.m. on Monday, August 18th.

Students may still register at GSC until Friday, August 22nd. For more information, contact the GSC Office of Admissions at admissions@glenville.edu or call (304) 462-6130 or toll free at (800) 924-2010.

Pioneers Picked Fourth in MEC Preseason Football Poll

Football

GSC Head Football coach David Hutchison and the Pioneer Football team was picked to finish fourth in the MEC Preseason Football Poll

Bridgeport, W.Va. - The Shepherd Rams have been picked to repeat as Mountain East Conference football champions after a vote conducted by the league’s coaches. Shepherd collected 95 points in the poll and was picked to finish first on seven ballots.

Concord was picked second with 91 points and collected three first-place votes. Charleston was chosen third with 84 points and received the remaining first-place vote. Glenville State placed fourth (67), followed by West Virginia Wesleyan (60) and Urbana (58). Notre Dame and West Liberty were predicted to finish in a tie for seventh with 44 points, and Fairmont State (33), UVa-Wise (15) and West Virginia State (14) rounded out the poll.

Shepherd (11-1, 9-0) returns seven starters on offense and five on defense from a team that captured the MEC championship and advanced to the quarterfinals in the NCAA Division II Playoffs. The Rams return its entire backfield with quarterback Jeff Ziemba and the running back tandem of Allen Cross and Jabre Lolley, the 2013 MEC Offensive Freshman of the Year. Shepherd, which has led the country in rushing defense in each of the past three seasons, graduated several significant pieces of its defense, but still returns three of its top four tacklers including sophomore linebacker Octavius Thomas. The Rams should once again be solid in special teams as they welcome back first team All-MEC kicker Ryan Earls and All-America return man C.J. Davis.  

Concord returns all 11 starters on offense and seven on defense from its squad that went 8-3 overall and 7-2 in the MEC last season. The Mountain Lions finished third in the country in total defense a season ago, but will have to replace its second all-time leading tackler in Jake Lilly. On offense, CU finished the year scoring 30 points or more in four of its final five games. A stout offensive line will help pave the way for running back Calvinaugh Jones who rushed for 1,036 yards and eight touchdowns last season. The Mountain Lions also boast one of the top kickers in the league in junior Andy Ellington.

Despite starting last season with a 2-3 record, Charleston (6-5, 6-3) won four of its last six with both of its two losses coming by less than six points in that stretch. Versatile junior John Knox rushed for 664 yards with six touchdowns and added 329 yards and five TDs passing in limited snaps at quarterback for the Golden Eagles a season ago. UC also returns seven starters on defense including 2013 All-MEC first team selections Demetrius Reddick and Isaiah Gibson.

Glenville State (6-5, 5-4) had four of its five losses come by seven points or less last season. The Pioneers will once again be led by Rahmann Lee, one of the top running backs in the country. Lee enters 2014 sixth in the country in rushing yards among active returning players with 2,764 yards. GSC will need to replace seven starters on defense, including its top two corner backs, but does return its top tackler from last season in James Johnson (105 total tackles) and its top pass rusher in Gary Henderson (5.5 sacks).

After being picked to finish last in the MEC in 2013, West Virginia Wesleyan went 5-5 on the year and 5-4 in league play to finish sixth. Quarterback Jeremy Musselman returns for his senior season after throwing for 2,490 yards and 20 touchdowns in nine games for the Bobcats last year. Musselman also returns one of his top target from last season in Zach Schademan. On defense, West Virginia Wesleyan brings back eight starters, including linebackers Mike Savage (74 tackles) and Desmond Holley.

Urbana (7-4, 7-2) returns more than half of its starters on offense from last season, but will need to replace the MEC Offensive Player of the Year D.J. Mendenhall. Running back David Hill will lead the offense after rushing for 875 yards and seven scores in 2013, and receiver Alvin Busbee is back after catching 39 passes for 568 yards last year. The Blue Knights welcome back several key returners on defense, including D’Gary Wallace who led the MEC in tackles for a loss last year with 20, and Kevin Chapple who is the leading returning sack man in the league with nine in 2013.

A three-game losing streak midway through the season led to 5-6 overall record and a 4-5 mark in the MEC for Notre Dame College in 2013. The Falcons graduated star running back Pedro Powell, but return signal caller Ray Russ. Russ completed 59 percent of his passes and threw for 2,504 yards last year with 21 touchdowns against just 10 interceptions. Junior standout Hayden Davis, the league leader in tackles in 2013 with 123, will be counted on to lead a defense that surrendered 31.6 points per game a season ago.

West Liberty (3-8, 3-6) will welcome back 17 starters on both sides of the ball when the Hilltoppers open the season against Shepherd on Saturday, Sept. 6. The Hilltoppers were strong on defense last year ranking 25th in the country in total defense, but managed just 13.4 points per game on offense. The tough ‘Topper defense could be even better in 2014 with the return of safeties Pierre Blake and Marco Ricchetti to go with All-MEC performer Andrew Faraimo. On offense, WLU returns wideout Dylan Potts and three two-year starters on the offensive line. Senior punter Griffin Yocum tied for the league lead with 41.5 yards per punt and placed 20 punts inside the 20-yard line in 2013.

Fairmont State (3-7, 2-7) will mix experience on offense with youth on defense under second-year head coach Jason Woodman in 2014. Cooper Hibbs was steady as a freshman last season throwing for 1,604 yards with 12 touchdowns, and he’ll be protected by postseason honors candidate Chris Barfield at left tackle. The Falcons graduated all three of their top tacklers from last season, but welcome back All-MEC performer Jacob Jean-Charles in the secondary.

With a season competing at the NCAA Division II level under its belt, UVa-Wise will look to improve upon its 2-9 record and 2-7 mark in the MEC. The Cavs graduated James Long, who led the league in all-purpose yards in 2013, but do return eight starters on offense. The Cavs will need to cut down on turnovers (-29 in 2013), and defensive coordinator Dino Kaklis has been tabbed to lead a unit that surrendered 38.1 points per game last season.

West Virginia State (0-11, 0-11) looks to show marked improvement in the second year under head coach Jon Anderson in 2014. The Yellow Jackets will continue to be young, but have several important players returning on both sides of the ball. On offense, WVSU will need to replace most of its skill position players with the exception of its leading receiver, Shanin Bennefield who caught 45 passes for 589 yards and two TDs in 2013. On defense, the Yellow Jackets bring back safety William Merritt who led the team in tackles (79) and passes broken up (8), to go with four interceptions on the year.

The 2014 season begins on Thursday, Sept. 4 with Fairmont State playing host to Notre Dame College. The rest of the MEC teams get underway on Saturday, Sept. 6.

Ida and Mark Mills

Ida and Mark Mills

GLENVILLE, WV—A pair of Glenville State College professors recently had a study published in the July issue of Contemporary Rural Social Work. Assistant Professor of Social Work and GSC Social Science Department Chair Dr. Ida Mills and her husband, Assistant Professor of Criminal Justice and Criminal Justice Department Chair, Mark Mills authored the piece titled ‘Gun Control: College Student Attitudes and the Meaning for Appalachian Social Workers.’ Contemporary Rural Social Work is an online journal devoted to the development of knowledge about rural social work and to the promotion of excellence in rural practice.

The purpose of their study was to consider what makes compromise and consensus on the issue of gun control so difficult and to consider those influences and implications for rural social workers.

“It was certainly comments by students in criminal justice and sociology classes that aroused our curiosity on this subject, but it was the tragedy at Newtown [Connecticut] that kick-started our interest and concern,” said Ida Mills.

During the spring 2013 semester they distributed a survey in which the pair collected data from nearly 300 GSC students. The questionnaire ranged from the importance of having a firearm for protection to the banning of assault rifles. They were then able to base their study on those results.

“It is nice to be recognized in a peer-reviewed journal.  We also presented the information in July 2013 at a national rural social work conference and at the 2014 West Virginia Social Work Conference,” said Ida Mills.
