OLLI Extra Mile Award

Connie McCluskey was honored at the Annual Luncheon for her commitment and dedication to OLLI. Connie has worked hard for years to assist in the day to day operations of the office. She is most deserving of the Extra Mile Award.

A Message from Our Director

OLLI Members and Friends,

Happy Summer! OLLI at WVU is such a success because of the many volunteers who serve on the Board of Directors and on our many committees. These people are your friends and colleagues, neighbors and fellow lifelong learners, and we’d like you to be familiar with who they are. They deserve recognition, praise and honor! Our members of the Board of Directors are listed on page 5 and Committee Chairs and descriptions are on page 9. Please consider joining a committee or contacting our Nominating Committee if you would like to be considered for the Board of Directors.

Summer Term has a selection of 35 courses, with many new instructors and topics as well as some classes carried over from our Spring Term.

Do you have friends who ask a lot of questions, are curious or love learning? Please invite them to our pre-term reception or to join you for a class (please get a voucher from the office). We welcome new faces and ideas!  Remember OLLI at WVU could possibly be your last Alma Mater!

Angela Faulkner-Van Deysen, Executive Director
