Convocation Wednesday, September 29

The following message was sent out earlier today by President Blanchard:

As you certainly know by now, Mr. David Ralston, the Speaker of the Georgia House of Representatives will be on campus this Wednesday, September 29. He will be speaking in Jackson Hall at 11:00 that morning. At the risk of pushing this a bit harder than necessary, I want to encourage you and your students to attend. Speaker Ralston was instrumental in our receiving the funding for Phase I of our Health and Human Sciences Complex this year and will be key to our receiving the money for Phase II next year. I want the Speaker to know that we appreciate his support. Having a large crowd for his presentation is important to sending that message. Thank you for your help on this.

Psychology/Sociology students: "Phase II" of the Health and Human Sciences complex mentioned in the message will be the new home of our department. Please try to come to the Convocation on Wednesday, if for no other reason than to show the Speaker the strength of your commitment to your education.
