Financial Aid Awards
By Renee Wilkins
The University financial aid office
has announced that the processing of
Basic Educational Opportunity Grant
(BEOG) applications for 1981-82 will be
considerably delayed due to revisions
being made by the U.S. Congress and
Department of Education. According
to the announcement, it is projected
that it will be late summer (August-
October) before the current backlog of
applications are cleared. Mr. Willard
Jordan, financial aid officer, said that
this delay may affect some 242
The financial aid office staff has also
advised all students to complete the
.necessary documents, especially the
Family Financial Statements (FFS), as
soon as possible. Students should make
applications on the FFS to the Basic
Grants so that their applications will be
on hand when processing begins.
“We suggest that those students who'
are able to find work this summer be
very could mean the dif
ference between being able to continue
their college education,” commented
The BEOG is the basis for all finan
cial aid packaging, therefore, students
are urged to quickly submit their Stu
dent Eligibility Reports to the financial
aid office. This will help decrease anx
ieties experienced around registration.

Campus Will Honor
Secretaries April 13-17
By Angela Jackson
Some are clerical, some are personal
and some are polite. They are defined
as those who are employed to handle
correspondence and manage routine
and detail work for a superior. Who
are they? They are the secretaries. They
are the ones who are seldom recognized
except for one special week. National
Secretary Week, April 13-17, is the week
dedicated to honor all secretaries.
Mrs. Manderline Scales, director of
student activities, describes her
secretary, Mrs. Elvita Hunt, as being
helpful, dependable and friendly. “She
has a beautiful pecsonahty,” said Mrs.
Scales. “She’s a peach,” said one stu
Dr. Hazel Harvey, chairman of the
communication arts department,
speaks of her secretary, Mrs. Jac
queline Hicks, as being a jewel. One
•/student said, “She’s always so busy do
ing this or that, but she always has a
smile to spare.”
Miss Evelyn Shouse, secretary to Dr.
Haywood Wilson, vice chancellor for
student affairs, is noted for being a
very nice person by many students. Dr.
Wilson states, ’“There are programs to
honor students, to honor parents and
to honor faculty, but never a program
to honor secretaries. National
Secretary Week is a very important
But what about Dr. Covington’s
secretary? Mrs. Jacqueline Black? “A
secretary is invaluable and should have
a good working relationship with her
employer,” says Dr. Covington. The
Chancellor feels there are many
qualifications required to make a good
secretary. She must be a good public
relations person, a receptionist,
courteous and professional. “A poor
secretary is a poor liability, but a good
secretary is a tremendous asset,” said
the Chancellor, “and Mrs. Black ranks
with the latter.”
When asked what the employers are
planning to do for their secretaries, all
replied by saying they were planning to
escort them to the luncheon which is
tentatively scheduled during National
Secretary Week, and present their
secretaries with flowers.
“I feel that we have a group of
outstanding secretaries at Winston-
Salem State University. I would like to
remind them that the university ap
preciates the invaluable contributions
that they make to our total progress
every week of the year,” said
Chancellor Covington.
