A Message from Our Board President

The spring term is on its way into history, the weather is finally warming, and ladies of a certain age are looking at their men in the Lazy Boy and wondering how to get him out of the house and on an adventure! The lawn is mowed, the weeds are at bay, a new layer of mulch is smothering the rest, and the cicadas are baaack! The air is filled with the sound of sawing, or is that insect love? Before we know it, the lightning bugs will be lit up and looking for love, too. What to do...what to do?

Wouldn't this be a good time for a beach read, a good movie, a ball game, or making sure we don't miss out on Garrison Keillor's final show as host of "A Prairie Home Companion?" Or...you could join one of the new crop of OLLI classes set to begin on July 11 in Morgantown. There's quite a selection--something for anyone's interest.  You can sign up now on the website, or come to the Annual Meeting on June 22 and do it then, along with renewing your annual membership. Joining and registering can now be done on our web site, which is quite easy to navigate. If you have any trouble with it, call our office!

Jim Held,
President OLLI at WVU Board of Directors


Jascenna HaisletWest Virginia welcomed me this week with rain. Although the sky may overcast, the rain is nurturing new growth and nourishing the earth. OLLI does the same for us, feeding our curiosity, imagination, and desire for knowledge.

I come to OLLI at WVU with a passion for learning and a history in the lifelong pursuit. Just two short weeks ago, I was the program manager for the OLLI at the University of Montana, an opportunity made possible by returning to school later in life and changing careers after 30 years in theatre. Although Montana is certainly a beautiful place to live, when the opportunity to move to Morgantown arose, I jumped at it. My affinity for the lush hills and winding roads in the region runs deep, reminding me of my childhood years spent in southern Ohio along the river. It feels right to be so much closer to home.

I am honored to be a part of this vibrant organization and look forward to getting to know each of you. I want to learn the history of OLLI at WVU and hear what you consider the strengths and weaknesses of the program so that we may continue to provide the best possibility experiences for our members to learn together. My office door is usually open so please stop by to say hi!

Jascenna Haislet
