On October 24, Congressman Bill
Hefner announced in a news release that
St. Andrews has been selected by the
Department of Defense as a site for an
Electronic Commerce Resource Center
(an ECRC.) This will mean 15 new jobs
for the St. Andrews community and a
chance for St. Andrews students to have
access to a vast amount of technologi
cal resources.
The federal government has be
gun to do business primarily by the
internet. This includes contracting out
work to be done. However, many small
and medium size businesses that would
be willing to offer low bids on the con
tracts do not yet have technology so
phisticated enough to apply for them.

The annual meeting of the Board of
Trustees took place Oct. 24 and 25. This
meeting was the first of three meetings
that will be held during the current aca
demic year. The next two meetings will be
held in February and April.
One of the more important decisions
was to rename the LA auditorium. The
Board unanimously renamed it “the Morris
Morgan Theater.” Morgan was known
for his love of theater and music, as well
as his contributions to St. Andrews. Mor
gan , 68, was a trustee from 1990 until his
death in July.
The meeting on October 25 served
several purposes. First, it acquainted the
new trustees with the college. A plenary
session was attended by not only the
trustees, but representatives of the fac
ulty staff and students. Following this
session, the board divided into three sub
committees. Each of these groups met m
different areas.
The Defense Department created the
ECRC to bridge the gap.
There are currently 11 ECRC cen
ters scattered around the continental
United States. (The closest one to
Laurinburg is in Atlanta.) Congress re
cently authorized the Department of De
fense to expand the program and build
five more ECRC centers. As well as build
ing a site on the campus of St. Andrews,
the ECRC will also be adding sites in New
Orleans; Dallas; Winchester, Pennsylva
nia; and Largo, Florida. The St. Andrews
ECRC site will be operational by January
1,1997..
ECRC will have a variety of ben
efits. According to a statement made by
President Warren Board, “The already
diversified manufacturing and agricul
tural economy of this area will benefu
Another aspect of these proceed
ings was the assessment of the college’
financial resources. The board reviewe
the college’s fiindraising and spendin
practices.
Still another area of interest were tl-
activities offered by the college. The di
partments had written brief reports, bi
the board received the most informatic
from a program put together by the ai
ministration.
Dean Larry Schulz explained it th is
way before the event. “A special progra.ii
will be put together, usually during tl e
dinner hour, to allow stodents, faculty and
staff to tell what they are excited aboui."
This program gave the Board of Trustees
a look at what St. Andrews was really liJ- e.
The meeting was more of an orien
tation than anything else, but gave an im

greatly from the addition oif this high
technology enterprise for growth as we
approach the 21st century.”
The ECRC will also give St. An
drews top of the line computer systems
and internet connections and pour $3
million dollars into the St. Andrews com
munity.
Board credits Hefner with bring
ing ECRC and the benefits it offers to St.
Andrews. “St. Andrews Presbyterian
College, and the entire Laurinburg/Scot-
land County area, owe a deep debt of
gratitude to Congressman Bill Heftier for
his tireless, enthusiastic and effective
promotion of Laurinburg and the college
as the site for a new Electronic Commerce
Resource Center. It would not have been
possible without him,” Board said.
