Archileci's Drawing of Siudenl Union
Our student government is undertaking the tremendous task of raising $50,-
000 to build a student lounge which we have needed for years—since we open
ed our doors as Goldsboro I. E. C. This year, the same small snackbar in a 36 x
30' room has served over 900 students at one time.
WAYNE COMMUNITY COLLEGE DAY
APRIL 28, 1969
This day is a special day In the eyes of
Wayne Community College students.
On this memorable day, WCC "students
staged a march on City Hall," as one NBC
news commentator stated. He further stated
that the march was a change (a refreshing
one he might have noted) from the usual run
of the mill marches that seem to be sweep
ing across the campuses of our country.
The march was for Progress and not protest,
("protest" spelled with a small "p").
As everyone here knows (since nearly
every student participated, and also many
^ our teachers, staff and "higher-ups" did
.ewise),our march for Progress is spelled
A NEW STUDENT UNION
City Hall responded with a warm,friendly
welcome to the decency and enthusiasm our
marchers presented. Mayor Robinson met us
with open arms; and to our proud amazement,
with a proclamation that April 28, 1969, is
declared Wayne Community College Day!
Among others who welcomed our march on
City Hall were Mr. Hocutt, chairman of the
WCC Board of Trustees, Munroe Best and Hal
Tanner,members of theWCC Board of Trustees,
and some friendly faces that were not intr
oduced to us.
On behalf of WCC students, our thanks
go to Mayor Robinson, President Erwin, Dean
Waller, staff, teachers and to the two
swingin' patrolmen who escorted us to and
from City Hall.
