GLENVILLE, WV – Glenville State College President Dr. Tracy Pellett and Vice President for Student Life and Athletics, Rusty Vineyard, honored two individuals through GSC’s ‘Half time Heroes’ initiative during the Pioneer Football game on Saturday, November 4.

“I am proud to recognize these Pioneers as a small token of our appreciation for all of their hard work. One of the best parts of being President at Glenville State College is having the opportunity to work with such great faculty, staff, community leaders, alumni, and donors. The individuals we’ll be honoring as Half time Heroes work tirelessly to make this campus and our community better places,” said Glenville State College President Dr. Tracy Pellett.
