IIMIIIIWB[III l]lIllmiillllllllllJl Thursday, Septemher 24, 2009 -- The Glenville l)emocrat New Face At City Hall: 00c.s Asst. Principal SC Intern Tony Antonini Honored Jay Chambers, a 2008 graduate of Salem International University's Edu- cation Leadership program and assis- tant principal of the Gilmer County High School in Gilmer County, has been honored by the West Virginia Center for Professional Development (WVCPD) as a Distinguished Scholar for his exemplary participation and work during the 2008-09 Principals' Leadership Academy for New Princi- pals. As a Distinguished Scholar, Chambers received $750 to support continued professional development at his school and an award for his accomplishments during a dinner held in Charleston. The Principals Leadership Acad- emy is one of WVCPD's five core programs. Each year, new school administrators are required by state code to attend academy sessions, in order to strengthen their skills and abilities as school leaders. Based on the concept of continuous improve- ment, the Center requires each par- ticipant to complete and implement an action plan at his or her school. These plans address an area of spe- cific need and can have a dramatic impact on student and school perfor- mance. ANOTHER FRESH FACE AT CITY HALL--Tony Antonini, of Morgantown, isn't the typical first-year college student. When GSC's Student Acitivites office called for student participation in a "Sidewalk Street Gang" meeting, Antonini was immediately interested. "1 love community activities," says the young volunteer. Antonini's interest and spirit made him a fine fit for the city's Sidewalk Gang, an organization Glenville Mayor Tashua AIIman participates in with fervor. A short time later, the mayor asked Antonini if he would be interested in an internship with the city in exchange for 3 hours political science credit. "1 didn't reply to the email," says Antonini, "1 don't think I even logged off. I just ran to City Hall, and told her "Yes! Absolutely, don't give it to anybody else." Apparently the positive feelings are mutual• "1 am very excited to be able to have a GSC student serve as an intern for the Mayor's Office," says AIIman, "Tony is doing a great job and I truly appreciate all the assistance he has given me." Much of Antonini's time has spent planning the Halloween dance and haunted house that the "Street Gang" will be holding in the old Moose building across from Go- Mart. The intern will also spend time on grant writing, ordinance research, and other duties which will benefit this community and a.dd to Antonini's own experience and capcacity to help others in the future. From the Front Porch: Troy News Lori Rosenburg 462-4398 Welcome Home ! Sharon Armentrout, sister of the late Hunter F. Armentrout, has moved into Little Cove and is proud to be back in Gilmer County, after being gone for many years. She says she could never fill her late brothe/'s Stioeg, btt ghe is here to stay. Sharon graduated from Troy High School, Class of 1962, and is now retired from the U.S. Govern- ment, after 20 years of service.

Welcome home, Sharon. My son, Cary, has his first car and has ben enjoying it thoroughly. He has been driving to school and work. Please keep him and his safety in your prayers. Classes are going well, although I missed Friday's classes because I have been sick with an upper respiratory infection .... Yuck. i am feeling better now and was able to attend classes again as of Monday. I have noticed thatGSC has placed signs around the hallways urging people to cover their coughs, as well as hand sanitizer dis- pensers, and I think it is a great idea. The bridge crew has been working very diligently to get the new bridge in place; I hope it will be soon. Troy School is back to business as usual, and things seem to be running smoothly. I hope you all have a sale and won- derful week, and don't tk)rget to cover your cough; it is cold and flu season once again. Until then, I'll be waving at you from the front porch.
