GLENVILLE - Ms. Rosemary Thomas has been appointed Vice President for College Advancement at Glenville State College, effective April 2. She previously held the position of Associate Vice President for Institutional Advancement at Fairmont State College, where she worked for over nine years in advancement and alumni relations.

Clearly it has been worth the wait to find the right person with significant, professional advancement leadership experience to spearhead our college's efforts to secure the funding we have needed for so long, said GSC President Thomas H. Powell when announcing the appointment. In addition to her outstanding fund raising and development activities, Vice President Thomas is a dedicated community leader and volunteer working for a number of worthy causes. Glenville State College is very fortunate to have Vice President Thomas join our senior leadership team.

While in Marion County, Thomas served on the United Way Board of Directors, is the state director of the Junior Womans Club, and a volunteer for the American Cancer Society, the Quota Club and the Rhododendron Girls State Organization.

The history of Glenville State College is one of excellence, pride and tradition. The sense of pride held by alumni and friends is known throughout the state and beyond, said Thomas. It is so exciting to see the level of enthusiasm and an understanding of the need for private resources to be raised through the GSC Foundation. Those private funds will have a significant impact on the future of the institution.

Thomas graduated cum laude from Clemson University with a B.A. in Political Science, earned her Master of Public Administration with honors from the University of South Carolina and is currently pursing a doctorate in Education Leadership Studies from West Virginia University.

The Fairmont native plans to continue her civic work and become involved in the area. AI am so pleased to be able to come to Glenville State College and look forward to becoming part of the community she noted.

Thomas is the daughter of Mary Jo Thomas of Charleston, formerly of Fairmont, and the late Adna Thomas.
