McClay, 27, woiks with a gi

colors. McClay said much of his
newest woric was influaiced by a
trip he took in 1990 to Africa.

going on the air. The FCC and all
the paperwork that goes into put

been a long and tedious affair, he
said.

simulcast from WTEB, located in
New Bern, and have classical
programs during the hours of 6
a.m. to 6 p.m. The station will be
handled by students between 6:30

The Student Government As
sociation held its elections on
March 16, and although many
offices went unopposed, student
turnout was high and the elections
went well.
Rising senior Judy Boyd, cur
rent president of the Campus Ac
tivities Board, was elected unop
posed as president of the SGA.
As well as presiding over the SGA
meetings and meeting with the
President’s Council, Boyd sees
some of her primary duties to be
listening to student concerns and
finding real solutions for them,
serving as the primary link be
tween students and administra
tion.
Boyd also has several goals
for her twm as SGA President.
“My primary concern is to attack
the amount of £^)athy on campus,”
she said. Boyd feels that by
working on s^athy, she can in
crease student organizational in
volvement as well as tap oppor
tunities for growth.
Commuter and rising junior
Toby McAuliffe was elected vice-
piesident of the SGA. He, too.
was unopposed. Current freshman
class president Nicole Cox, also
unopposed, was elected secretary.
Dawn Romano, the only SGA
executive board candidate facing
opposition, defeated her opponent
to become SGA treasurer.
Assistant to the President Fred
Moore says that the administra
tion is eager to work with the
new executive board.
“Executive Board student
leadership like we have and have
had is of critical importance,” he
said. He points out that “the
President meets with the Execu
tive Board on a regular basis to
discuss issues,” and adds that they
“woric on a variety of topics to-
geth^, serving as key communi
cation between students and ad
ministration.”
Other SGA Senate seats were
also chosen. Dave O’Neill, cur
rent Judicial Board Rqaesenta-
tive, was unopposed in his elec
tion as Senior Class President.
Eric Seibold defeated four
other candidates in the tough race
to become the new Sophcxnore
