Glenville State College, historically central West Virginia's home for teacher education, signed a memorandum of understanding with Roane County Schools and 12 other county school systems in West Virginia to kick off their "Home Grown" teacher training initiative at the West Virginia State Capitol on Thursday. Under this program, students from participating counties who attend Glenville State College and train to become teachers of math, science, or special education may receive a "full ride" through a combination of scholarships and grants. GSC and the counties hope that by giving potential teachers treatment usually reserved for star athletes, including enhanced mentoring and supports, more teachers will choose to stay close to home and address WV's growing teacher shortage problem.
Pictured here are the West Virginia State Senate, who recognized GSC and the counties with SR 35, Glenville State President Dr. Tracy Pellet and staff, and county superintendents.
