Zeller’s replacement not set

Wednesday. “It’s more adversity that

Williams has not announced who
will start for Zeller against Santa

spokesman for UNC Department
of Athletics, on Thursday.
Hansbrough began practicing
lightly this week, and Williams said
after the Kentucky game that the

ASG turns focus to advocacy
Would solicit student involvement
BY OLIVIA BOWLER
ASSISTANT STATE & NATIONAL EDITOR
The UNC-system Association of
Student Governments will spend
its last meeting of the fall semester
this weekend preparing for one of
next semester’s biggest projects.
The association, which is com
prised of student leaders from all
the UNC-system schools, is trying to
revamp the Advocacy Corps, a pro
gram intended to involve students
in lobbying the state government on
relevant issues such as tuition.
Each school will appoint two
students to the corps. However, the
program is having difficulty recruit
ing participants. As of Thursday,
only four schools had submitted
Chazz Clevinger, who leads the
committee in charge of the pro
gram, said the low level of response
is due to deadlines placed on the
campuses they were supposed to
turn in at least six applications for
spots on the corps by Nov. 7-
“Time constraints are the num
ber one thing I’m up against right
now,” Clevinger said.
The legislative and public affairs
committee of the association is
continuing to recruit members
from each school, he said.

Zeller has 20 points to Davis’

the boards, grabbing 24 to Zeller’s

minutes in the first two games.
Zeller didn’t travel to Santa
Barbara with the team Wednesday,
but the Tar Heels next head to
Hawaii for the Maui Invitational,
which starts Monday.
Kirschner said Zeller will be
making the trip to Maui “as long
as he feels up to it.”
Zeller was lost, most likely for the
season, after fracturing two bones in
his left wrist Tuesday. He underwent
surgery successfully Wednesday.

Because of the time crunch and
because of how few students have
applied, Clevinger said there will
be a motion in the committee this
weekend to pass the responsibility
of choosing applicants on to the
student body presidents.
“Although this process isn’t as
ideal as we would like, it’s the best
we could come up with in three
weeks time,” Clevinger said.
He said the most important
thing is full representation, which
means that some universities might
have to directly appoint members
to the corps.
“We will provide a customized
plan for each campus to make sure
they are fully represented in the
corps,” he said.

CHCCS board selects
man with 6 children
BY WHITNEY BAKER
The Chapel Hill-Carrboro
City Board of Education selected
Gregory McElveen on Thursday to
fill a one-year vacancy.
The group unanimously approved
McElveen, who works as a strategy
manager at IBM, to take the spot that
will be left open when Chairwoman
Pam Hemminger joins the Orange
County Board of Commissioners.
McElveen has six children, four
of whom graduated from district
schools and two now enrolled.
“We have a diverse student body
with a diverse set of needs," he
wrote in his application. “The chal
lenge is to respond to that diversity
in our teaching approaches and to
create from that diversity an even
stronger educational experience.”
He has served in a variety of
leadership positions, including
as an officer in the Chapel Hill/
Carrboro branch of the National
Association for the Advancement
of Colored Pet pie.
Seven residents applied for the
position earlier this month. The
applicants took part in a group inter
view during the Nov. 13 meeting.
Erin Sullivan later withdrew
because she said several other
applicants were strong candidates,
according to Thursday’s agenda.

After Griffiths’ announcement,
Provost Bernadette Gray-Little met
with the School of Information and
Library Science faculty to figure
out the next step.
Evelyn Daniel, associate dean
for academic affairs, said the deci
sions include whether to find an
interim dean or go directly to a
national search to fill the position.
“I would imagine they will be
looking for someone who can keep
things moving, someone who can be
a visionary leader and make sure the
school moves through the transition
from where it is today and where it
will be in the future,” Griffiths said.
In addition to serving as dean,
Griffiths is involved in UNC research
initiatives, represents the University
nationally in the Clinical and
Translational Science Awards and
works with N.C. State University on
health-related data projects.
She was also recently appointed
to the U.S. National Science Board.
“I’m told by people who move on
from administrative positions that
you suddenly realize how much
time you have that’s your time as
opposed to everyone else’s time,”
Griffiths said. “That sounds very
nice to me right now.”
Griffiths informed the school of
