Senate updates SFC constitution, allocates $6,000

The senate adopted a revised finance committee constitution and allocated $6,000 for discretionary spending at its Monday meeting.

Senate Vice President of Finance, T.J. Thomson, said Senate has a combined $158,739 in its accounts.

Thomson next introduced a bevy of proposed revisions to the Senate Finance Committee’s constitution. He said he spent extensive time revising the committee’s constitution with Morgan Nelson, president, and James Bahensky, vice president.

The biggest change proposed requires the finance committee to issue monthly statements with clubs’ account balances.

The senate voted unanimously to adopt the proposed revisions.

Lastly, he requested a discretionary allocation of $6,000 for the executive board to purchase materials to boost school spirit. The board plans to purchase T-shirts bearing the senate’s centennial slogan: “Tradition never graduates.”

A portion of the money will also be used to purchase the raw materials for several signs to mark sections reserved for students in both the seating areas of Armstrong Gym and Don Beebe Stadium. Further uses of the money included funding halftime events and prizes.

The senate unanimously approved the allocation.

Nelson gave details about the approved plan to get a time capsule. She said the student body wants to make an impact on school history, especially since this is the college’s centennial year.

Shellie Johns, coordinator of conferencing, spoke about the many improvements that have been made to the Student Center. The renovations included new coats of paint on the building’s interior and exterior, new furniture, and doors. A popcorn machine has been added to the lounge.

Johns said the machine will remain available for students’ use as long as the area around it remains clean. New board games and movies are also available.

Laure Sinn, coordinator of student activities, said a street dance is planned for Saturday behind the Student Center. The dance is sponsored by NOCS, FFA, and Ag club.

Five applicants for vacant senate seats briefly introduced themselves and summarized why they wanted to serve as senators. As The Eagle went to press Wednesday evening, the identities of the applicants were not available. For information on the applicants, see The Eagle’s website csceagle.com.

Thomson said Wednesday that he forwarded the revised constitution to Andrew Schmid, CSC webmaster. The constitution will be available for student review in the Student Senate section of CSC’s website. Thomson also said students interested in applying to serve on the committee should contact him.
