lKWf5 Vol. XV. No. 7, Winston-Salem State University, April, 1981 Affecting 242 Students Revisions Will Delay Financial Aid Awards By Renee Wilkins The University financial aid office has announced that the processing of Basic Educational Opportunity Grant (BEOG) applications for 1981-82 will be considerably delayed due to revisions being made by the U.S. Congress and Department of Education. According to the announcement, it is projected that it will be late summer (August- October) before the current backlog of applications are cleared. Mr. Willard Jordan, financial aid officer, said that this delay may affect some 242 students. The financial aid office staff has also advised all students to complete the .necessary documents, especially the Family Financial Statements (FFS), as soon as possible. Students should make applications on the FFS to the Basic Grants so that their applications will be on hand when processing begins. “We suggest that those students who' are able to find work this summer be very frugal...it could mean the dif ference between being able to continue their college education,” commented Jordan. The BEOG is the basis for all finan cial aid packaging, therefore, students are urged to quickly submit their Stu dent Eligibility Reports to the financial aid office. This will help decrease anx ieties experienced around registration. See Page 2 An Excellent Teacher Mrs. Emma T.

Campus Will Honor Secretaries April 13-17 By Angela Jackson Some are clerical, some are personal and some are polite. They are defined as those who are employed to handle correspondence and manage routine and detail work for a superior. Who are they? They are the secretaries. They are the ones who are seldom recognized except for one special week. National Secretary Week, April 13-17, is the week dedicated to honor all secretaries. Mrs. Manderline Scales, director of student activities, describes her secretary, Mrs. Elvita Hunt, as being helpful, dependable and friendly. “She has a beautiful pecsonahty,” said Mrs. Scales. “She’s a peach,” said one stu dent. Dr. Hazel Harvey, chairman of the communication arts department, speaks of her secretary, Mrs. Jac queline Hicks, as being a jewel. One •/student said, “She’s always so busy do ing this or that, but she always has a smile to spare.” Miss Evelyn Shouse, secretary to Dr. Haywood Wilson, vice chancellor for student affairs, is noted for being a very nice person by many students. Dr. Wilson states, ’“There are programs to honor students, to honor parents and to honor faculty, but never a program to honor secretaries. National Secretary Week is a very important week.” But what about Dr. Covington’s secretary? Mrs. Jacqueline Black? “A secretary is invaluable and should have a good working relationship with her employer,” says Dr. Covington. The Chancellor feels there are many qualifications required to make a good secretary. She must be a good public relations person, a receptionist, courteous and professional. “A poor secretary is a poor liability, but a good secretary is a tremendous asset,” said the Chancellor, “and Mrs. Black ranks with the latter.” When asked what the employers are planning to do for their secretaries, all replied by saying they were planning to escort them to the luncheon which is tentatively scheduled during National Secretary Week, and present their secretaries with flowers. “I feel that we have a group of outstanding secretaries at Winston- Salem State University. I would like to remind them that the university ap preciates the invaluable contributions that they make to our total progress every week of the year,” said Chancellor Covington. See Page 2
