Student Government On The Move
Students Petition Grievances Denied by the Administration
Led by President Eart Hart, the
Student Government Association of
Winston-Salem State University
has gotten off to a very impressive
start this year. While most stu
dents were vacationing this sum
mer, the members of the SG.A were
busy setting up formats for a bet
ter ' and more prosperous school
year. They worked with the stu
dents over the summer to estab
lish a list of bonified grievances to
be presented to the administration.
These grievances were logical
and sensible ones, however the ad
ministration rejected the majority
of them. Still not satisfied with the
way they were turned down the
members of the Student Council
decided to petition the entire Stu
dent Government Association (stu
dent body). As usual only about
half of the students participated in
the partitioning, but it was an over
whelming vote in favor of the new
proposals presented to the admini
stration. All of this happened on
October 6, 1970.
On the night of October 12, 1970
the Student Council called a meet
ing of the Student Government As
sociation in the Whitaker Gymna
sium. The purpose of this meeting
was to get the student body (SGA)
to ratify the proposed revision of
the constitution of Winston-Salem
State University, which was revis
ed this past summer by the Student
Government Association. Copies of
the new constitution were passed
out to the student body. Then the
voting took place. The majority of
the students were in favor of the
new constitution therefore it was
Included in this issue are copies
of the new constitution and the re
sults of the partitioned ballots.
We will have a wonderful student
