"We are fortunate we have a seasoned, competent administrator to move into this position," said Dr. Romcsburg. "Gil understands this institution is here for one reason the students." Dr. Lucille Stoddard, Vice President of Academic Affairs said, "Gil is student oriented and should serve very capably."

A. and was an English teacher before going back to obtain his masters in Educational Administration from the same institution. He has also done post-graduate work in staff evaluation.As Assistant to the President for College Relations, his main focus for the last seven years has been in representing UVCC at the sessions of the state legislature, and working onc-on-onc with the 16 legislators who represent our area.

One-woman play to be presented in January The Personal and Career Development Student Organization is co-sponsoring a one-woman play written and performed by noted author, Carol Lynn Pearson. The play, tilled "Mother Wove the Morning," deals with sixteen different women throughout history and their dramatic stories regarding the human family and their longing for their Mother in Heaven. The single performance will be Saturday, January 20 at 7:30 p.m. in the Student Center ballroom. Tickets arc $10 in advance and $12 at the door. They arc available at the Student Center desk or at SmiihTix. In describing the play, Pearson says, "I know in my heart that the Creator that brought us here is in some marvelous way both Father and Mother. Perhaps, in the beginning, on that primordial day, Mother wove the morning and Father made the evening. Why, then, did I grow up feeling that I was living in a Motherless home?" Sixteen women throughout history answer that question: a paleolithic woman; an Egyptian priestess; a biblical woman who watched the rape of the Levitc's concubine; a Gnostic woman; a medieval witch; a Shaker deaconess, and many others. Their dramatic stories show that the human family has always longed for its Mother in Heaven, has often exiled Her, and is now inviting Her to come home. According to Anita Musto, faculty advisor of the Personal and Career Development Student Organization, it is very appropriate that the play is being sponsored by this organization. The club, headed by President Pam Applcton, is a support group for the re-entering student and has a special focus on problems faced by single mothers. Through participation in the club, these students are able to network for jobs, make new friends, share common experiences, and learn from guest speakers.
