GLENVILLE — A grant from a utility company will help students at Glenville State College majoring in STEM-related fields.

The Glenville State College Foundation received a $20,000 grant from Dominion Energy from the proceeds from the 24th annual Dominion Energy Charity Golf Invitational held in September at the Pete Dye Golf Club in Bridgeport. The fundraising event raised about $200,000 to support the American Cancer Society and 15 charities, including Glenville State.

“Dominion Energy is pleased to once again support the Glenville State College Foundation in its commitment to higher education and we commend the work they are doing to prepare our future workforce in STEM and engineering fields,” Jason Harshbarger, Dominion Energy state policy and local affairs director, said.

The college and the foundation are appreciative, according to David Hutchison, executive director of the foundation.

“We greatly appreciate Dominion Energy — they have been a longtime supporter of Glenville State College and their overall commitment to assist in the education of students is something that has been beneficial to many of our Pioneers,” he said.

For more information about the grant or to make a donation, contact Hutchison at David.Hutchison@glenville.edu or 304 462-6381.
