The day proved to he an excellent opportunity fi r GSC to promote the growth and expansion of programs that have occurred in recent years. Senators, Delegates and staff members visited the table throughout the day to praise the collective out- pouring of support for Glenville State College that they have received from alumni and friends of the institution. This is a testimony to the loyalty and dedication of all GSC alumni and friends. +'We were delighted to hear Gover- nor Wise say that he thought Gtcnville State College is on the right track," said Terry Butcher, Chair of the Board of Governors. "It is always refreshing to hear that the work of the faculty and staff is not going unnoticed and Glenville State College certainly has a lot to be proud of." Federal support has become an in- tegral part of the College's continued growth. Governor Wise is well aware of the relationship that is developing between Congressman Alan B. Mollohan, Glen ville State College and Gilmer County. On January Ist, Gilmer County became part of West Virginia's First Congressional Dis- trict, which Mollohan has represented since 1979. The Congressman and his family are no strangers to the area. His great grandfather was one of the founders of the original Glenville Normal School in 1872. "['here has already been a signifi- cant investment of time on the part of Congressman Mollohan and the stu- dents of Glenville State College will undoubtedly benefit from his intense interest. Severalopportunities forpart- nerships are currently being pursued that will enhance academic offerings for the entire IO-county service re- gion. "'Governor Wise commended Glenville State College |br its strong affiliation with Congressman Mollohan's office and encouraged us to continue to work with all levels of government," said Margc Burke, Board of Governors member and former state legislator. "We are so pleased with the continued support we are receiving in Charleston from our local delegation of capable House and Senate members and we know that the federal support will allow us to do even more to support the mis- sion and to serve the people of central West Virginia," added Burke.
