Campus leadership roles to
role as SBP
By Steve PoM
Matt Heyd worked quickly Sunday
to finish up one of his last tasks as
student body president cleaning out
The decorations were off the walls.
The office was dotted with stacks of
manila folders and boxes of papers,
each probably detailing an important
event from this school year.
"After Tuesday, I'm gone," said the
senior political science and history ma
jor from Charlotte as he picked up a
folder from one stack only to put it back
down on another stack.
"Between being both (student con
gress) speaker and SBP, it's been a busy
two years, and I'm looking forward to
not being busy."
But even in the waning hours of his
presidency, Heyd was busy , and it didn ' t
seem like a break was coming in the
future. He answered phones, helped
friends who wandered in and out of his
office and kept stacking folders.
When he began to reflect on his term
as student body president, however, he
would stop in his tracks.
Heyd plopped a thick blue binder on
the desk and opened it to the front page.
"What really surprised me was the num
ber of letters I've written," he said,
flipping through the pages of the binder.
"I've kept every letter ever written to
me," Heyd added. "It's interesting to
see what people had to say during dif
ferent times of the year."

It's been more than 1 9 years since the
United States pulled out of the Vietnam
War, and the question of whether living
Americans remain in captivity in South
east Asia continues to loom as a com
plex and confusing issue.
Weeks before signing a truce with
Vietnam in January 1973, President
Richard Nixon promised he would work
to bring all American POWs back to
U.S. soil and would attempt to obtain a
full accounting of all those listed as
missing in action.
But in April 1973, the White House
closed the books on most MIA cases
and declared that no Americans were
left in captivity. A March 23, 1977, U.S.
