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,

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 of the catalog and Committee Chairs and descriptions are on page 9. Please consider joining a committee or contacting our nomination committee if you would like to be considered to be put on the ballot for our elections held at our Annual Meeting in June. 

Spring Term has a record-breaking selection of 58 courses to choose from, with many new instructors and topics as well as some classes carried over from our Winter Term.

Do you have friends who ask a lot of questions, are curious or love learning? Please invite them to our preterm reception or to join you for a class (please get a voucher from the office) as we continue celebrating our 20th year of lifelong learning in this area. 

Angela Faulkner-Van Deysen, Executive Director
