SGA honors professor for exemplary service

By Jerreck McWilliams, Contributing writer

Recent SGA business has been mostly limited to preparation for Springfest, but there have also been developments outside of this project.

For instance, Dr. Gordon Eggleton, professor of chemistry, was honored with a proclamation by the SE SGA for his 40-year career of outstanding service to the university.

“We were lucky enough to have general chemistry with him,” SE Student Senator Matt Sitton said about his instruction from Eggleton.  “He was a professor who cared not only about what he was teaching, but also what the students learned.  Looking back I think we were luckier than we realized.”

Many SE students share Sitton’s sentiments and will miss Eggleton after his retirement.

The recycling program enacted by SGA has been successfully established and maintained the past few weeks in the Glen D. Johnson Student Union.

Reports from the Committee of Safety and Beautification state that as of this writing they have already recycled a full bin of cans and plastic, and intend to take another load of plastic along with paper to the recycling center again this week.

The rest of the Senate’s efforts continue to be devoted to the development of Springfest, which will be the week of Apr. 3-7.

Packets are now available in the Office of Student Life, the Student Senate Office, and the Office of Student Affairs.  They are due back in any of those offices by Mar. 21.
