Carolyn A. Bailey, M.A., Associ- ate Dean of Student Affairs for the West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine (WVSOM), was elected chairman of the Section of Student Affairs Officers of the American As- sociation of colleges of Osteopathic Medicine (AACOM) in their February meeting in North Miami Beach. AACOM lends support and assis- tance to the nation's 15 osteopathic medical schools. The Section of Stu- dent Affairs Officers meets twice a year to keep abreast of school poli- cies. Ms Bailey received her M.A de- gree in counseling and her B.A. de- gree in rehabilitation education fro~- Marshall University. Prior to joining WVSOM in 1985, Ms Bailey served as Director of Fi- nancial Aid at Bluefield State Col- lege. She alsopracticed as a private counselor for Bluefield's Profes- sional Counseling Associates. Ms Bailey is an active member of WVSOM campus committees and community organizations. On a na- tional level, Ms Bailey is a member of the American Association for Carolyn A. Bailey, M.A. Counseling and Development, the College Personnel Association. On a state level, she is a member of the Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators, Association for Counseling and Development, Col- lege Personnel Association, Mental Health Counselors Association, and Student Personnel Administrators. She received the first WVSOM President's Award of Excellence for Employee Achievement in 1988. ence: "The Greenbrier County Board of Education agrees to withdraw let- ters threatening termination of county teachers. Further, school in Greenbrier County will be cancelled for Wednesday, March 14, 1990. The Greenbrier County Board of Education strongly urges and ex- pects the Governor to call a special session of the legislature to address the concerns of West Virginia teach- ers. This session should be held prior to September 1, 1990. In turn, teachers have agreed there will be no pickets at Greenbrier County schools on Thursday, March 15, and Friday, March 16. Also, all teachers will return to work on Monday, March 19, 1990." The statement was signed by the Board members, Mr Baldwin, and Mr Archer. The agreement apparently dif- fused tensions between Board members and parents of Greenbrier County public school students. Many parents came to the meeting with signs expressing support for striking teachers. 'Tin here because t will not stand by and see our teachers fired," Linda DiMascio of Rupert said. Mrs DiMascio is president of the Rupert Elementary/Junior High School Con- cerned Parents' and Teachers' As- sociation. "1 want my children to go to a school taught by qualified teachers," she added. '1 don't want just anyone coming in off the street to teach my kids. That could happen if our teachers are fired. If we can help change the situation by being here, that's our purpose," Dorothy Viers, a retired teacher from Charmed who taught 18 years at East Rain,lie Grade School and seven years at Smoot Elementary School, said, "1 called several na- tional-level people, including con- gressmen, and asked them to con- tact Mr Baldwin about this plan to fire striking teachers and replace them. I have six grandchildren in our county schools, and I can't stand by and let this happen." Curt Keesee, who has three chil- dren at Smoot Elementary School, said, "The Board has adopted a very polarizing position without trying to adapt to any middle ground-- they've taken the most extreme po- sition possible. It's put both sides in a corner." "1 think the whole thing is inex- cusable," Carol Cameron, a Fairlea parent, said. '1 have a son at Green- brier East High School, and I haven't heard one teacher yet say he or she doesn't want to go back to the classroom, rm not necessarily in favor of striking, but sometimes you have to do what you have to do. The Board of Education has made an example of our teachers--and we're paying taxes for this sort of thing." All state public schools were closed Thursday and Friday accord- ing to an order from State School Superintendent Hank Marockie. The two-day period was called to allow a "cooling-off" time to diffuse tensions between striking teachers and Gov- ernor Gaston Caperton's administra- tion. Despite the failure of striking teachers to reach an agreement with Governor Caperton over the weekend, teachers in Greenbrier County returned to their classrooms Monday to honor the March 13 com- promise with the Board of Educa- tion. "We hope a statewide agreement is reached soon," Mr Arbuckle said. "we realize the deal we struck with the Board of Education is a tempo- rary end to the situation here, and we feet it is our obligation to carry through with it." The March 13 agreement was approved by striking Greenbrier County teachers, who met at the same time at Carnegie Hall. Mr Arbuckle declined to specu- late whether the GCEA would de- cide to re-institute a walkout if efforts to call a special legislative session continue to be unsuccessful. "If the Legislature is not called back, we will still lack the mechanism to see changes statewide--and we'll end up waiting until January again for any chance to get something done." I~espite the agreement between the Board and the GCEA, tensions continued running high among teachers and parents upset by the Board's original plans to fire striking teachers. "Right now we're in limbo," Lewisburg Intermediate School fifth- grade teacher Paula Carson said. "We thought our Board would back us; instead, they were the only ones in the state to take such a drastic measure. Our people here in Green- brier County have worked together in the past--I don't know why they couldn't this time."
