Members discuss spring visitation day

Justin Tardiff | Tuesday, April 12, 2005

With enthusiasm and a bright smile, Saint Mary’s Student Body President Kellye Mitros welcomed the 2005-2006 Board of Governance to its first official meeting Monday night.

Recently elected and appointed board members assumed their new positions in the student government conference room and presented information of recent and upcoming events to fellow board members.

Admission Commissioner Annie Davis said that 160 high school students, along with their family members, are already registered for the Saint Mary’s “Spring Day on Campus,” which will be held April 17.

“This is the biggest ‘Spring Day on Campus’ we have ever had,” Davis said. “There are over 500 people registered and we are getting more by the day.”

Davis requested that board members who are available sign up to give campus tours throughout the day.

BOG approved donating $200 to help buy thank you gifts for speakers who are coming to campus to present during the Fire and Safety Fair on April 21. Fifteen to twenty groups will have tables set up in the lobby of the new student center from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on April 21 and will be handing out information on various safety issues

The Class of 2006 has begun planning for the 2005 Senior Dad’s Weekend, which will be held Sept. 30 to Oct. 2. Because it is being held so early next fall, the 2006 Board plans to have the event fully organized by the end of this school year.
