The Free Press WV

Virginia “Ginny” Rachel, a 2015 graduate of West Virginia Wesleyan College’s Master of Fine Arts (MFA) program, has been awarded the fifth annual Irene McKinney Postgraduate Teaching Fellowship.  Rachel, of Princeton, WV, received her bachelor’s degree from Concord College in 2001. For the past two and a half years, Rachel has been working as a traveling adjunct instructor.

Next year, Rachel will be teaching two Composition II courses as well as Introduction to Literature.  She will be working under the supervision of Jesse van Eerden, MFA director.  During her tenure as a student in the MFA program, Rachel worked with short stories until the shape of her writing became a novel in her thesis, How Small the World.  Her characters survive together in Piney Oak, a fictional West Virginia town where they explore a sense of place through various perspectives.

Returning for the MFA’s cross-genre option in the fall of 2016, Rachel developed a new interest in creative nonfiction.  She is excited for the opportunities this fellowship will bring.

“I am extremely thankful and thrilled to have received the Irene McKinney Fellowship so I might have the experience of working with students and faculty at Wesleyan,” she said.  “I am excited to have the opportunity of a year to focus on teaching and to learn as much as I can in the process.”

The Irene McKinney Postgraduate Teaching Fellowship is available to all graduates of the College’s MFA Program for up to three years after graduation.  The fellowship honors the founding director of the College’s MFA Program, Dr. Irene McKinney, Professor Emeritus and West Virginia Poet Laureate, who passed away in 2012.

Federal Review of Atlantic Coast Pipeline Fails People and the Environment

The Free Press WV

An analysis of environmental impacts for the proposed Atlantic Coast Pipeline is completely inadequate and falls far short of legal requirements.This is the overwhelming consensus of thousands of comments filed this week with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC).The agency had issued on December 30 a Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) on the proposed 600-mile natural gas pipeline that would go from central West Virginia, through Virginia and terminate in southern North Carolina.

“FERC’s inability to provide a sound analysis of this project is a violation of the National Environmental Policy Act,” said Lewis Freeman, Chair and Executive Director of the Alleghany-Blue Ridge Alliance, a coalition of 51-organizations opposing the project. “What’s more, the Commission is poised to make a decision that will reverberate for decades based on inadequate information.”

The shortcomings of the DEIS are considerable because of its failure to:

  • Assess the true market demand for natural gas in the region of the proposed pipeline;
  • Take a hard look at the effects the proposed route planned through predominantly minority and low-income neighborhoods would have on communities;
  • Consider the devastation to mountaintops construction would have across steep, forested Appalachian ridges;
  • Provide adequate environmental information. The DEIS lacks sufficient information about the ACP and its potential environmental impacts on a wide variety of resources, including water resources, wetlands, cultural resources, threatened and endangered species and climate change implications; and
  • Identify, consider, and analyze all reasonable alternatives.

“The federal government is glossing over the massive impacts this 600-mile pipeline would have on neighboring communities and climate change,” said Alison Kelly, an attorney for the Natural Resources Defense Council. Greenlighting this pipeline without a sufficient review of the damage it would cause is a disservice to the people who life in its path and treasure this part of Appalachia.”

Greg Buppert, a senior attorney with the Southern Environmental Law Center, said: “FERC is only telling one side of the story, and that story fails to answer the critical threshold question – is this project even necessary?”Buppert points out that recent energy demand forecasts have cast serious doubt on the need for the ACP.Furthermore, two-thirds of new generating capacity being added in the United States is based on renewable sources, not natural gas. Building the ACP would be contrary to the future growth of the electric utility industry.

“ACP refused to do the necessary impact analysis, so we have had to hire engineers to find out what will actually happen,” said Ben Luckett, a senior attorney with Appalachian Mountain Advocates. “We’ve learned the pipeline would create millions of cubic yards of excess dirt and rock for which ACP has no disposal plan and will level many of our scenic ridgetops, much like a mountaintop removal coal mine. We fear the most likely resting place for all of that construction spoil will be in our rivers, lakes, and streams. It is truly a slap in the face to hear FERC dismiss these impacts as ‘insignificant’ or, worse yet, to see that they have failed to analyze them at all.”

“The Atlantic Coast Pipeline environmental review failed to adequately address the threats it poses to our communities and our environment. This dirty and dangerous pipeline creates concern for significant risks of adverse impacts due to the nature of the terrain that the line would cross. Based on multiple unresolved environmental issues and potential hazards, and the magnitude of this project, FERC must reject the application. The stakes are very high and the risks are far too great,” said Kirk Bowers, Virginia Chapter, Sierra Club.

Anne Havemann, Senior Counsel at the Chesapeake Climate Action Network, said: “The Atlantic Coast Pipeline would be a disaster for the climate. It will trigger a massive new wave of fracking, bringing climate pollution equivalent to 20 new coal-fired power plants. FERC’s own former chairman Norman Bay said that the agency should reconsider how it analyzes environmental impacts of pipelines like ACP, including analyzing lifecycle climate emissions. FERC should heed his advice and revise its analysis, or reject the pipeline.”

Peter Anderson, Virginia Program Manager for Appalachian Voices, noted: “A couple of months ago, the former Chairman of FERC raised significant doubts that the agency adequately analyzes pipeline need and climate impacts. This draft environmental impact statement is no different. FERC should rescind this DEIS and start over, this time with final route proposals, completed surveys, climate analysis that accounts for the entire life cycle, and a critical analysis of market demand and alternatives.“

“We know that projects like these are invariably placed near communities of low-income, people of color, or the elderly. In usual fashion, the ACP places a heavy burden on the poor and elderly, perhaps by design. These folks may not have the energy, stamina, and resources to fight, and that’s what these companies are banking on. This is an example of outside interests that plan to use our resources and toxify our land for their own benefit. It’s an old story that continues to play out the same way, despite the best efforts of local people to change our energy landscape,” said April Pierson-Keating Mountain Lakes Preservation Alliance, Upshur County, WV.

Alumna Grabs Title of Athletic Trainer of the Year

Stephanie Clark ’13, MAT ’14 of Cairo, WV (Ritchie County, WV) was named Athletic Trainer of the Year during the West Virginia Athletic Trainers’ Association 2017 Annual Sports Medicine Conference, held March 3-4 in Flatwoods, WV.

Clark, who now resides in Elkview, WV, is employed with Elk Valley Physical Therapy working outreach for Herbert Hoover High School, one of the three high schools in the state that were affected by the massive June 2016 flooding.  Although Herbert Hoover High School is no longer in use and students are learning half-day at Elkview Middle School, Clark made it her mission to continue her work with her students.

“Fall sports were questionable, but we made it happen,” she stated.  “Football went to the playoffs, volleyball made a showing at the state tournament, and the boys’ basketball team went to the state tournament for the first time in the school’s history.  It is easy to do my job when I work with a pretty great community to help these kids out.”

Clark finds this particular position in line with the skills she developed at Wesleyan.

“Creative thinking was always encouraged at Wesleyan,” commented Clark.  “Working with an AA high school in a small West Virginia town under these special circumstances requires me to be able to think creatively in order to do my job well.

“The athletic training department of Wesleyan is absolutely one of the best in the state,” she continued.  “I had more hands-on opportunities because class sizes were small.  I was put in real-world situations every single day and was expected to answer the whys of these situations.  The department shows tough love, and everyone becomes a family that pushes you to achieve.”

On receiving the Athletic Trainer of the Year award, Clark was humbled by the win.

“It is a huge honor, really,” she said.  “I was surprised because there are so many great athletic trainers in this state.  I am just doing my job, and it is good to know I am doing it well.”

As a student, Clark was a member of Zeta Tau Alpha, Kappa Alpha Rose, concert band, collegiate 4-H club, and the academic affairs committee.  Clark is also a member of the National Athletic Trainers’ Association and the West Virginia Athletic Trainers’ Association.

Winkie of Bridgeport Named Fourteen Fulbright Scholar at Wesleyan

Mason Winkie, a senior biochemistry and psychology major and honors minor from Bridgeport, WV, has been named West Virginia Wesleyan College’s fourteenth Fulbright Scholar.

Sponsored by the United States Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, the Fulbright Program provides funding for students, scholars, teachers, and professionals to undertake graduate study, advanced research, university teaching, and teaching in elementary and secondary schools.

Winkie received an English Teaching Assistant Award to travel to the Czech Republic from September 1 through June 30.  His main objective while in the Czech Republic will be helping students learn English and more about American culture.

“I chose the Czech Republic mainly because of familial ties to the country through my maternal Grandfather,” Winkie commented.

Winkie says that he is so interested in international travel simply because he wants to widen his perspective to include cultures outside the United States.

“The idea that I know so little about the rest of the world and the billions of people that live outside my sphere of understanding led me to try to connect with as many people from different cultures as possible through opportunities like the Fulbright Scholar program,” he said.

Knowing that having a broad perspective is the key to success, Winkie is excited to gain a wider understanding and appreciation for those outside the American culture.

“An opportunity like the Fulbright Scholarship allows me to live life from a completely new perspective and more fully appreciate my shared connection with the many people on Earth through their happiness, their struggles, and their progress,” he said.  “These shared conditions are what can and will unite people in our struggle to overcome all future crisis.”

During his time at Wesleyan, Winkie has volunteered as an English as a Second Language (ESL) tutor, a Bobcat Outdoor Orientation Trip (BOOT) Camp leader, a member of WE LEAD’s Appalachian Experience Interest Team, and was a student representative for the Board of Trustees Enrollment Council.  He credits his experience with Wesleyan’s faculty and staff as a key player in his success thus far.

“I have to thank the faculty and staff at Wesleyan who have helped mentor or aid me through my time here,” Winkie stated.  “They do such a remarkable job in making me feel like I am their only student by the amount of dedication and friendliness they put into assisting me,” he said.  “However, it is their ability to provide all students with this feeling that makes attending Wesleyan such a happy and rewarding experience for everyone.”

Previous Fulbright Scholars from Wesleyan include Katie Oreskovich Loudin, Thailand, 2007; Laura Full, Macao, 2008; Michelle Mayhew, Malaysia, 2008; Brad Foster, Thailand, 2008; Carolyn Bugg, Taiwan, 2010; Jillian Moga, South Korea, 2010; Lucy Swecker, South Korea, 2011; Cassandra Bodkins, Bulgaria, 2012; Kaitlin Whitt, Bulgaria, 2012; Gabrielle LaFata, South Korea, 2013; and Leisa Kimelaskas, Slovakia, 2014.  Other Fulbright Scholars Bethanie Thompson, 2008, and Marie Franco, 2010, elected to pursue other opportunities.

WV State Strawberry Festival Seeks Berries for Market

The Free Press WV

Organizers of the West Virginia Strawberry Festival are looking for local growers to stock a market with berries at this year’s event.

The festival board, the city of Buckhannon and the state Department of Agriculture are working with private farmers to have fresh strawberries available for sale on May 20 and 21. This year’s festival runs from May 13 through 21 in Buckhannon.

Local growers have produced small amounts of berries for the sale over the past three years. But agriculture officials say the demand for fresh berries has far outweighed the supply.

Carioca Nabs First Place at West Virginia Sports Medicine Conference

Vitor Carioca, a senior athletic training major at West Virginia Wesleyan College, won first place in the oral presentation category of the West Virginia Athletic Trainers’ Association (WVATA) 2017 Annual Sports Medicine Conference, held March 03-04.  The Brazil-native presented his senior research findings on “Effectiveness of Dry Cupping Treatment on Reported Non-Specific Low Back Pain (NSLBP) and Spinal Range of Motion.”

Dry cupping is a method by which suction is created on particular points on the patient’s body.  Suction could be created by using heat to warm the cups so that the cooling air inside the cup creates a vacuum that tugs the skin upwards.  The practice has been around for over 3,000 years and dates as early back as 3000 BC.  It has recently gained publicity due to its use by American sport celebrities including NFL player DeMarcus Ware and Olympians Natalie Coughlin and Michael Phelps.

Carioca’s advisor, stands with Carioca after his presentation


Carioca presented his findings on Friday, March 3 during the WVATA business meeting.  Competing against three students from the University of Charleston, Carioca was awarded first place for his research.

“I was lucky to have been chosen to present an oral presentation to the WVATA,” stated Carioca.  “Every athletic training student in the state of West Virginia had the opportunity to send their work in.”

Carioca credits his professors at Wesleyan for helping prepare him for this success.

“The entire athletic training staff was an important part of the success of this presentation,” he stated.  “Since the fall, I have been working on my senior research and was granted approval this semester to begin collecting data.

“I have to give a special thanks to Exercise Science Professors Drew Mason, Rae Emrick, Scott Street, and Dan Martin who were open and supportive to the idea of researching an alternative medicine technique in our setting.”

West Virginia High Schools Recognized for Exemplary Graduation Rates

Seventy West Virginia high schools were recognized for achieving exemplary graduation rates of 90 percent or greater during the 2015-16 school year. Schools were honored by Governor Jim Justice’s Chief of Staff, Nick Casey, State Superintendent of Schools Dr. Michael Martirano and the West Virginia Board of Education.

“Our state becomes stronger with each student that graduates high school,” Martirano said. “The high schools here today deserve the praise they are receiving for achieving a 90 percent or higher graduation rate. Our schools see the potential that a high school graduate holds for our state and they, along with the Department of Education and Board of Education, have made it a top priority to ensure our students show up, work hard, and earn a diploma.”

Recent data show more students in West Virginia are graduating from high school when compared to previous years. Several statewide initiatives contributed to the steady increase in the graduation rate. Most notably the creation of the state’s Early Warning System, which tracks 45 different indicators – the most important being attendance, behavior and grades – to identify students at risk of dropping out.

West Virginia’s graduation rate has continued to rise throughout the last several years. Data from the U.S. Department of Education placed West Virginia among the top 20 states for graduation rates in 2014-15, with a rate of 86.5 percent. The average graduation rate in the Mountain State for the 2015-16 school year increased even more to 89.81 percent.

Of the 70 schools recognized, four schools achieved a graduation rate of 100 percent. Those schools include; Union Educational Complex, Harman High School, Pickens High School and Paden City High School.

The 70 schools recognized represent 60.3 percent of the 116 high schools in West Virginia. The overall graduation rate for all West Virginia high schools was 89.81 percent.

Freddie Says Six More Weeks of Winter On The Way

The Free Press WV

Only a few hours after the world’s most famous groundhog, Punxsutawney Phil emerged from his hole on Gobbler’s Knob in Pennsylvania and proclaimed six more weeks of winter, many hoped West Virginia’s official weather forecasting varmint might offer a different outcome.

Tyler Evans, the manager of the West Virginia Wildlife Center in Upshur County, explained things looked good early on for a shadowless morning for French Creek Freddie.

“It was overcast early in the morning, but then about ten minutes before he was to emerge, the sun poked through,” said Evans of the Thursday ceremony at the Wildlife Center.  “I guess that was enough to get our report and since it was sticking around, I’d say that’s pretty accurate.”

Freddie in recent years had been on a role until last year and Evans is hoping his new streak of inaccuracy will sustain for another year.

“For the second year in a row, he saw his shadow so that would lead us to believe we’re going to have a little more winter weather before it gets mild again,” Evans said. “However, last year he was wrong, so deep down some of us are hoping he’ll be wrong again and we’ll be treated to an early spring.”

The ceremony at the Wildlife Center has become an annual event which has grown into a celebration with a couple of hundred in attendance.  There is food and games, like the “wood chucking contest”, a play on words to see who can throw a block of wood nearest a target.  The West Virginia Division of Natural Resources also uses the opportunity for education outreach to explain the biology of the groundhog and the roots of Groundhog Day.  The tradition started in Germany and was brought to America.

“Across the pond they would use a hedgehog or a badger to predict how severe the remaining winter might be,” Evans said. “As they began to migrate over to the New World, they realized hedgehogs and badgers weren’t as common and groundhogs were. Therefore the groundhog became the new tool to prognosticate the weather.”

Wesleyan to Hold 2nd Annual North-Central West Virginia Honor Band

The Free Press WV

On February 03, students from area county music programs will gather on the campus of West Virginia Wesleyan College for the second annual North-Central West Virginia Honor Band.  The two-day honor band, which stemmed from the idea of giving every middle and high school student in West Virginia a high-level musical experience opportunity, is facilitated by Logan Lindsey, director of bands at Wesleyan.

Students from Barbour, Upshur, Randolph, Gilmer, Lewis, and Taylor will arrive on campus on Friday to prepare for a Saturday, February 04 concert to be held at 7:30 p.m. in the Culpepper Auditorium of the Virginia Thomas Law Center for the Performing Arts.  The middle school band, comprised of 64 students, will be under the direction of Charles Doherty, director of instrumental music at Damascus High School in Damascus, MD.  The 63-piece high school band will be under the direction of Lindsey.

“The North-Central West Virginia Honor Band has taken a huge step in growth this year, adding three counties to its participating schools and looking for more in the future,” stated Lindsey.  “This is a vital part of musical development for young students as none of the participating counties offer an All-County Honor Band.  As I am sure this event will continue to grow and adapt, the most important part is that is continues to cater to the musical needs of the local students and their directors.”

Doherty directs two bands, a jazz band, and a string orchestra at Damascus High School.  He earned a bachelor of science degree in music education and a master of music in trombone performance from Duquesne University. He played principal trombone in the Symphony Band, lead trombone in the Jazz Ensemble, and principal bass trombone in the Wind Symphony, as well as conducted the Symphony Band in performance.  As a performer, Doherty has played with numerous groups in the D.C. area, including Mike Kamuf Little Big Band, Martinsburg Jazz Orchestra, The Yesterday Swing Orchestra, the Montgomery Philharmonic, and the Trinity Chamber Orchestra.

Lindsey is currently in his fourth year as Director of Bands at West Virginia Wesleyan College.  He is sought out regionally and nationally both as a soloist and conductor.  Growing up near New Orleans immersed in multiple music worlds has really shaped his performances and teaching to be very unique and always educational.  Lindsey has performed with the Modern Jazz Tuba Project, one of the premier jazz tuba/euphonium groups in the world.  He attributes his success to his teachers, mentors, and the blessings of his experiences.  Of these, his biggest influences came from Dr. Richard Perry, jazz and orchestral tubist and professor at the University of Southern Mississippi; Dr. Steven Sudduth, former low brass conductor at the University of South Dakota; and Chester Schmitz, retired Boston Pops Orchestra tubist.

The event is free and open to the public.
