Homecoming royalty voter increase from 2016
Student Senate announced that the voter turnout for Homecoming was significantly better than last year, with 681 voters, about “150 over what we had last year,” according to Chief Justice Samantha Merrill. The bedsheet winners were the Plainwalkers, the Pit, and United. The winners of the Parade were as follows: Best committee float- Pine Ridge Job Corp., Best club float- Zeta Alpha Kappa, and Best campus non-club- The Child Development Center.
Senate also has a budget of $37,226.35 of unallocated funds, and is “working on setting up AFB, and recruiting people to be in it,” Vice President of Finance Lukas Klueber said.
In another matter, Student Senate allocated $118 towards the refreshments, meatballs, boneless wings, and cookies, for the General Assembly meeting, taking place 6 p.m., Tuesday, in the Ballroom. Attendance for the meeting, is required for all clubs and will include NSSE and FSSE discussions.
The Spring Daze committee has a working budget, and has started to contact bands for entertainment.
“Right now, we have the entertainment extended to multiple days, so that it is not all packed into one day,” Vice President Johnathan Sayaloune said. “The next meeting is Sunday at 4 p.m., if you want to join us.”
Walker Echo Hawk, will be speaking on the Nebraska Before Nebraska: Our Pawnee Homeland, for the 2017 Pilster Great Plains Lecture, on Thursday at 7:30 a.m., in the Student Center. It is free to the public, and book signing will be held immediately after.
CORRECTION: In the Sept. 21 edition of The Eagle, the Senate article headlined “Student Senate approves Ag Club budget” had an error. We misquoted Jacob Rissler, Development Officer of the Chadron State Foundation. The quote read “…in their mission of serving our area and our religion.” Rissler actually said “… in their mission and serving our area and region.”
Thank you to the observant reader who pointed this out.
We apologize for this error.
