Loveland Crowned
Queen At
Valentine Banquet
The Sweetheart Banquet, held
on February 12, in the Bulldog
Room and sponsored by the
Young Women’s Auxiliary, was
a great success. The most im
portant thing about the banquet
was the crowning of this year’s
Sweetheart Queen. The girls
participating were: Linda Ben-
field, Jackie Bridges, Susan
Byers, Laura Day, Sheila Har
ris, Vickie Jenkins, Sherry
Jones, Kathie Loveland, Wanda
McClure, Karen Sawyer, Terry
Varner, and Sue Walker. Act
ing as master of ceremonies,
Dr. Furman Hewitt announced
Kathie Loveland as the Sweet
heart Queen for 1970.
Kathie is a sophomore and is
majoring in counseling. She is
the daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
Joseph F. Loveland of Hen
dersonville. Kathie transfer
red to Gardner-Webb from East
Carolina. She was crowned by
last year’s queen, Jill Sanders,

Sherry Jones, a freshman

three distinguished couples,
the Charles Freemans, the
Charles Macks, and the Fur

game was led by one of G.W.’s
own “cop-out” students, Reg
Alexander, it proved to be very
funny and sometimes embar
rassing for the couples. At the
game’s end, the Hewitts were
declared victorious.
After the game, the evening
was completed by Rev. Gene
iVatterson, pastor of the First
Baptist Church in Shelby,
speaking on words of love and
encouraging everyone to “put
a little love in their hearts for
their fellowman.”

Students To Meet
With Trustees
In a chapel program on Feb
ruary 17, Dr. Poston announced
the formation of a new student
committee that will be meeting
in discussions with the Trus
tee of the school. The commit
tee will consist of the three
Student Government executive
officers and the president of
the Women’s Affairs Board and
the Men’s Affairs Council.
“I have asked the Trustees
if they are interested in talk
ing with the students, and they
have said yes,” Dr. Poston ex
plained. He said that the stu
dents would be talking with the
Trustees about school policies
and campus activities.
Also Dr. Poston added that
more students will be placed
on the faculty committees of
the school. “This is how Gard
ner-Webb operates, through
committees,” he said. He ask
ed that any student interested
in serving on a particular com
mittee contact his office. The
following committees are open
for student members: execu
tive, financial and scholarship,
buildings and grounds, cultural
arts, curriculum, library, ad

Curriculum Committee
Adopts New Courses
Courses recently adopted by
the Curriculum Committee for
the 1970-71 school year will be
in the fields of journalism, li
brary science, and music.
THE PILOT staff suggested
to the Curriculum Committee
that a one hour course in the
basic principles of journalisni
be added to the English De
partment. THE PILOT feels
that the course would give the
student an opportunity to test
and constructively direct his
writing ability. They also be
lieve that the course would
raise the quality of journal
istic writing on campus.
The Library Science Pro
gram has been designed to pre
pare students for positions as
librarians in elementary and
secondary schools and to pro
vide an introductory under
graduate background for stu
dents who plan to do graduate
work in library science. Li
brary science courses are ta
ken along with a major i n any
other field; however, students
planning to work in the public
schools would probably want to
major in either elementary or
secondary education.
The Teacher Education Pro
gram in music will enable a
student to attain certification
from the North Carolina State
Department of Education for
teaching music within the pub
lic schools of North Carolina.
The State Department of Edu
cation certifies teachers of mu
sic only as an “all level” cer
tification, which means that the
student will receive certifica
tion for teaching music in
grades 1-12. The program meets
the requirements for accredi
tation as set forth for the Tea
cher Education Program in mu
sic by the National Association
of Schools of Music, the pro
fessional accrediting agency for
Students having questions a-
bout the student teaching pro
gram for next year should con
tact one of the following faculty
members who are serving on the
Teacher Education Committee:
Dr. R. E. Carothers, Dr. James
P. Henson, Dr. George Cribb,
Mrs. Barbara Cribb, Dr. Ro
bert Blackburn, Mr. Paul Jol
ley, Mr. Lansford Jolley, Mr.
Paul Sorrells, Mrs. Betty Lo
gan, Dr. Robert Lamb.
