Today at 5:30 p.m. in the cafeteria SGA held its weekly meeting. They discussed a new treasurer, the scavenger hunt, new members and the Last Lecture Series.

In the meeting former SGA treasurer Megan Shook had to resign her seat as Treasurer due to work load and scheduling conflicts. The other SGA members applauded her for her efforts during her time with them. Bekah Herum, a freshman from Blairsville, has been appointed as the new SGA treasurer, and if Herum decides to continue holding office, she will be sworn in next week as SGA Treasurer.

SGA’s Academic Affairs subcommittee will be holding a campus wide scavenger hunt on Thursday January 27, in the Plaza. The scavenger hunt will be held as part of YHC’s 125th anniversary activities. Young Harris students who wants to participate should come to the Plaza at 4:15 on Thursday. There will be $20 gas gift cards given to the top five first place winners. Students can sign up in groups of five to compete.

If any juniors would like to become an SGA member there is a seat open. Students interested in filling this vacancy should attend a meeting and speak with SGA President Matthew Kammerer about being an official member of SGA.

There is another Last Lecture which is when a selected speaker gives a speech on whatever they would want to say if it where to be the last lecture they ever gave. It will be on Thursday January 27, at 7 the Wilson Lecture Hall. The lecture will feature Reverend “Rev” Fred Whitley, who served the campus minister until 2008.

SGA weekly meetings are held in the dining hall on Wednesdays at 5:30, and they are open to the public.
