Edwin and Opal Vincent Starcher Memorial Scholarship established at Glenville State University

GLENVILLE, WV – Glenville State University graduate and current Board of Governors member Ann Green and her husband Larry Green have recently established the Edwin and Opal Vincent Starcher Memorial Scholarship.

The scholarship was created to honor Green’s parents. Her father was a 1949 Glenville State graduate and her mother was an instructor at Glenville State in the late 1940’s and early 1950’s.

“My parents were career educators who were passionate about the amazing work Glenville State has always done to help its students make the most of their lives. We are so pleased to be able to honor them through this scholarship while providing support for needy students in furthering their educations,” Green said.

Scholarship awardees will be selected by the Scholarship Committee at Glenville State University. Students may receive a scholarship renewal, provided they maintain satisfactory academic progress and a 3.0 GPA.

“We are happy to help honor the memory of Edwin and Opal Starcher through the establishment of this scholarship,” said David Hutchison, Vice President of Advancement. “As career educators, they understood the importance of education and, through this scholarship, their legacy lives on. Students at Glenville State University will be able to pursue success thanks to this generous scholarship.”
