Notes from the Sept. 19 SGA meeting

Quiche Matchen

Student Government Association’s meeting Tuesday night revolved around reading bills and a resolution, the nomination of a homecoming queen candidate and a presidential appointment.

SGA had a second read of the study away scholarships bill. SGA was looking at distributing eight $100 Study Away scholarships.

That bill was unanimously approved.

Another bill, Transcript Voucher Program, went up for first read.

The transcript voucher program would keep students from having to pay $7 for academic records they’ll need for scholarships, jobs, or graduate school. A total of 100 transcript vouchers will be available to students at a limit of two vouchers per student

The program serves as a beneficial partnership between SGA and the Office of Registrar.

SGA also had a resolution up for first read, the resolution to approve fall campus clean-up date.

The fall campus clean-up is a bi-annual tradition that helps beautify WKU’s campus while also promoting SGA. One service credit hour will be offered to any student in an organization that requires volunteer hours.

SGA nominated Keyana Boka, executive vice president, as their homecoming queen candidate.

SGA’s fall elections will be taking place tomorrow and Thursday. On Sunday SGA will conduct the organization’s annual retreat.
