Former Glenville State Professors, Staff Members Return to Campus

Glenville State College recently welcomed former employees back to campus for a Retirees Luncheon. The event provides a chance to recognize those who have devoted years of work to ensure the success of the college and build the culture of caring that makes GSC so unique.

Nearly every office and academic department across campus had representation from the group that assembled to reminisce and share memories. Many of the former professors and staff members who attended are also Glenville State College graduates.

“I’ve said before that we stand on the shoulders of the giants that came before us here at Glenville State, and when you talk to our retirees it is easy to see the origins of the greatness and best this institution has exhibited. These folks carried on the traditions that they learned from their predecessors and then in turn passed it on to our current workforce. Their caring and thoughtful nature illustrates what our graduates have said for years, that Glenville State College feels like a home away from home. I think that is a true testament to the work of our former faculty and staff. It was a privilege to be able to host and have them back on campus for lunch and fellowship,” said GSC President Dr. Tracy Pellett.
