After eventful weeks filled with executive elections, funding requests and two election runoffs, the Oklahoma Christian University Student Government Association (SGA) geared up for the remainder of the semester at last night’s meeting.
SGA attendees voted on a bylaw proposal to fund no more than 50 percent of the entire cost of a funding request and not more than $250 per individual. According to SGA President Tyler Clark, the revision of this bylaw was an attempt to better spread out our funds among multiple students.
The SGA recently formed a Spring Sing committee to increase clarity between the judging process and the student body. To eliminate the possibility of bias or uninformed judges, the committee proposed hiring four judges: an alumnus or alumna, a faculty member, a person not familiar with Spring Sing and a professional with a production background.
The SGA received a $330 return on their endowment fund for the first time since creating the fund in 2011. According to junior Rett Parker, the endowment fund committee benefitted from collaborating and receiving help from Oklahoma Christian University Executive Vice President Bill Goad.
In a teary discussion of highs and lows for the year, SGA attendees reflected on their best and worst memories from the 2017-2018 school year. Students discussed highlights of the year such as Increased transparency, passion, philanthropy and intentionality with other student groups.
The next SGA town hall meeting will take place April 10th from 7-8:30 pm in Scott Chapel. The live-streamed meeting will focus on campus improvements and will include live comments and questions from the audience.
The Healthy Living Committee plans to reschedule the Master’s Garden plant day to April 8 from 1:30-3:40 p.m. due to weather. Students will receive a kudo for their volunteer work.
