EMILY SAYS TO WEAR A MASK
Matthew Tolliver, MA ’08, adjunct instructor in counseling and president of the West Virginia School Counselor Association, had a lot of worried students during the pandemic. Luckily, he had Emily (pictured above) to help ease their fears and show them the way.
“As a school counselor at Skyview Elementary School in Westover, W.Va., I wanted to help relieve the anxiety of my students as they prepare to return to school. Emily, my puppet – and literal left-hand girl – helps me as I teach classroom lessons and talk with students.”
ISN’T IT IRONIC?
Suzanne Gosden, management assistant chair and teaching associate professor, has a mask with every professor’s catchphrase. Her entry won “most ironic mask.”
“A former student made this mask for me! Isn’t it hilarious!!??”
Angela Embrey, finance and business administrator at the Cancer Institute, won “most original mask” for a display from her garden.
“I grew these tomatoes and marigold flowers and picked them on Sept. 11, 2020, and they looked like a face. I posted on Facebook and people enjoyed him and with the help of others, we named him Sir Roma.”
