Hey, we just couldn't pass this opportun
We spend all of our time trying to be
unbiased, and sensationalism is not our style,
so it's a blast to be able to show off the staffs
The front page is obviously totally fabri
cated, but do not fear; our usual straight, unbi
ased, fair, and credible stories are on the fol
Speaking of fair, unbiased, and credible,
the one thing I am most proud of my staff this
year has been their dedication to covering
campus news from a objective standpoint - a
feat not easily accomplished.
I would like to take this opportunity to
thank my staff for their hard work this year in
publishing a newspaper that any school should
be proud of. Also, thanks to our incomparable
advisor who kept Kevin and me in line.
Obviously, each and every' one the staff
has personal biases, but they have been able to
shed those biases in order to find the truth. The
truth is often not a pretty sight, and writing the
truth is not always easy.
A reporter faces heat from every possible
angle when the story is published. I can
honestly say that every story this year which I
approved, while making some people steam,
has found the truth, regardless of political,
administration, or student pressure.
The newspaper is not a place for wimps,
so thanks guys for having the guts to tell the
truth this year, as many reporters for The Pilot
have done in the past.
Sure we make mistakes; we're stiU learn
ing, but they are honest mistakes. I feel good
about this year, and no amount of petty politi
cal games can take away from the good name
of The Pilot. Thanks also to our readers this
year for your support Without your criticism
and support, we are truly nothing.

The Gardner-Webb University's residence
hall committees of Myers/Spangler and Nanney
residence halls have established a big brother-big
sister program at James Love Elementary school.
A group of students will travel to James
Love once a week to help kids in their weakest
area of study.
The principle of the school, Mr. Quinn
says, “I am really delighted to have a group
from such a fine university to help with the
The program will consist of each student
being assigned to a classroom and helping each
child who needs it.
Some kids do not have big brothers or
sisters or even a father or mother. This pro
gram is designed to give that student someone
to look up to in a sense. Through this program,
the helpers can get a good feel if someone is
being abused or not.
Garrick Scott, president of Myers/
Spangler residence hall committee, came up
with the idea of this program.
Scott says, “It makes me feel good to see
the GWU student body is giving a little back to
the area community.”
“We encourage all students who would
like to help with the program to feel free to do
so, our goal is to make this program campus

Mr. Quinn also went on to say, “James
Love Elementary school thinks a lot of the
university and would like to continue this
program in years to come.”
