Glenville State College student Keelin Howes of Buckhannon has been awarded the Edward Nicholas Orr IV Scholarship and the John C. Shaw Scholarship from the GSC Foundation for the 2018-2019 academic school year. She will be majoring in English and is the daughter of Jessica Lynch.

The Edward Nicholas Orr IV scholarship was established to be earmarked in memory of Edward Nicholas Orr for scholarships used in his field of journalism. Mr. Orr was a 1939 graduate of Glenville State College.

The John C. Shaw Scholarship was established in 1985 by John C. Shaw, who was the President of Glenville State College from 1901-1908. This scholarship is awarded to academically talented freshmen from West Virginia.

“The Glenville State College Foundation is excited to be able to award scholarships to these very deserving students,” said Vice President for Advancement and Executive Director of the GSC Foundation David Hutchison. “Our extended Glenville State family has been very generous which makes our impact that much more meaningful. From our Day of Giving to our new crowdfunding campaigns – I am truly impressed and grateful to our donors, their families, and all who have stepped up to make more opportunities for current students.”
