"We had a car in the Glenville State College Homecoming Parade last October in order to make ourselves more visible here," he relays, also mentioning that some of the old school's memorabilia is being stored on the second floor of GSC's Administration Building. Bill and Margaret lament that so much of the old high school's historical objects have disappeared over the years, especially since the time the new county high school came into existence in 1969.

"We've given out $57,000 in scholarships over the past four years," Bill estimates. He says that this includes $25,000 granted in the year 2003 alone. "We also renew these scholarships, if the students continue to excel in their college studies," he adds.
