outstanding recommendations was that the
people running for office must be required to
submit a petition of students’ signatures.
Hawkins feels that if the women running

those seeking student government chairs.
When asked about the constitution that is
currently being worked on by senate, Chris
Johnson says, “Everything for now on will be
determined on this year's elections. The elected
will set precedence for the future.”
He also added that under this new consti

their constitutional rights, since this is a private

Cddbrafion Week - an awesome experience

How would one describe what happened
during Celebration Week? One word could
sum it up - “Awesome!”
An entire year of prayerful preparation
went into the events of Celebration Week, and
every minute of diligent work was repaid a
thousand times. GWU students and faculty
saw prayers answered before their very eyes as
hearts were broken, surrendered, and revived.
Dover Theatre became the “place to be”
during the week of January 31-February 3.
Hundreds of students filed into the LY CC each
night with a driving enthusiasm that quickly
became contagious.
Nightly, the stage boasted an entire music
team leading a standing audience in powerful
song, dynamic drama presentations, and both
a student and faculty speaker. The front of the
stage converted into an altar which was packed
every night
This year was unique to student revivals
of the past in that it was truly a “celebration.”
“We didn't call it revival because we can't
predict when God will bring a revival,” said
Celebration week was a time for friends to join together in fellowship
with each other and the Lord.

greatest cel
ebration of the
week was that
hearts were in

never to be the
same again.
“We gave this week to God to let Him do
what He wanted to with it,” said Barnes. “It
was amazing how God convicted our hearts
through many different ways during Celebra
tion Week. I believe that He was truly honored
and glorified.”
Perhaps the most astounding effect of
Celebration Week was that it didn't stop with a
“week.” The spirit remains strong and evident
with “Celebration Night” each Wednesday at
6:00 p.m. in the Chapel.
All students are invited to join in the fire
of celebration that continues to bum bright.

In last year’s elections there were many
positions that had only one person running for
office. This was quite a disappointment to
many students.
Taking nothing away from the current
officers, many people felt cheated by not being
allowed to make their vote count.
To show their opposition to this limited
election there was a None of the Above cam
Scott Hawkins, the elections chair this
year, is considering a write-in spot on the
ballot for other choices. Hawkins has submit
ted a nomination proposal to the executive of
ficers of the student government who are work
ing on a document which will outline nomina
tion procedure (see page 3 for proposal).
Chris Johnson, a GWU student and one
of the organizers of the None Of The Above
campaign, says, “The student body believes

that the elections are a farce, that the student
senate is a farce.”
Hawkins’ duties, as this year’s chairman
of elections committee, will be to supervise
elections, count and verify the winner, and
several other various tasks.
“I think Gardner-Webb is people ori
ented . . .” said Hawkins. “. . . (Students
should) run and not sit back and complain.”
He also feels that a fair amount of stu
dents do not care, and that their opinion really
would not make a difference.
Student involvement and voting is highly
encouraged by Hawkins. He feels there is no
better way to voice your feelings than by
