WKU Student Government Association Senate members stand and say their oath as they are sworn into their new committees in the SGA chambers in Bowling Green, Ky. on Aug. 29, 2023.

The WKU Student Government Association’s first piece of legislation of the year was passed Tuesday night during the fifth meeting of the 23rd Senate.

SGA met in the SGA Chambers to debate and vote on Bill 1-23-F: Funding for the SGA Pink Walk.

The walk will be held in October for both WKU students and the Bowling Green community to spread awareness about breast cancer and raise money to find a cure.

This bill’s purpose is to allocate $500 out of SGA’s scholarship budget to the SGA Pink Walk for Breast Cancer Awareness. The money will be spent on bracelets, pink ribbons, cases of water and various raffle prizes to be given out during the event.

The authors of the bill are Donte Reed, director of enrollment and student experience, Rush Robinson, sophomore senator and Anne-Marie Wright, junior senator.

Bill 1-23-F passed unanimously with 28 votes.
