Former Gilmer County Superintendent of Schools Ed Toman has been named the Director of the Glenville State College JASON Project and Coordinator of the GSC Hidden Promise Consortium. |
"I am so excited about this opportunity to work at my alma mater. GSC changed my life, and now I can give back even more to the place that is near and dear to my heart," Toman said.
The federally-funded JASON Project trains area teachers at Glenville State College so they can take the program into local classrooms to inspire and motivate students to learn science.
Glenville State College President Dr. Peter Barr created the GSC Hidden Promise Consortium three years ago implementing it in more than a dozen Central West Virginia Counties.
Toman served five years as the Gilmer County Schools Superintendent beginning in 2004. Prior to that, he worked seven years for Wirt County Schools in various positions including Schools Superintendent, Wirt County High School Principal, and Vocational Director as well as four years employed in the Monongalia County Schools system as a teacher and a coach.
Toman's extensive educational career also includes time at Presley Ridge School at Laurel Park in Clarksburg and at schools in Braxton, Lewis, Wetzel, and Tyler Counties.
Toman has received numerous honors and awards including the Glenville State College Distinguished Alumni/Outstanding Educator Award in 2003.
