New Scholarships Honor GSC Land Resources Professors

Glenville, WV – The Glenville State College Department of Land Resources has announced new scholarships honoring two professors who pioneered the forest technology and land surveying technology majors within the natural resource management program at GSC.

The first scholarship, named after Professor Emeritus Ed Grafton, will be available to students majoring in forest technology. The second honors Professor Emeritus Rick Sypolt and is available to students majoring in land surveying technology. The scholarships will be awarded to highly qualified students in both programs who demonstrate leadership and excellence as exemplified through academic achievement and commitment to community service.

“It is most humbling to have a scholarship honoring my years as an educator and Chair of the Department of Land Resources at Glenville State College,” said Grafton. “To the students that receive this scholarship: I trust you will be able to utilize the funds for the betterment of your education and wish you much success in your endeavors.”

“I am deeply honored that Glenville State College is offering a scholarship in my name,” said Sypolt. “I had the privilege of teaching the best students that any faculty member would ever want. Hopefully this scholarship will encourage similar great students to attend GSC and have happy and productive careers.”

If you would like to make a donation to the Ed Grafton or Rick Sypolt scholarships, contact the Glenville State College Foundation Office at (304) 462-6381.
