One thing is for certain, you can't say that the students at Emory and Henry College don't care about what's going on.
Whether it's in the classroom, cafeteria, or involving the janitorial staff, the students on the Emory and Henry campus seem to be some of the most caring college students I'm aware of.
So, when recent budget changes called for cuts and layoffs to professors, employees to be be under different company management, etc., the students asked for answers.
The Student Government Association stepped in to provide those answers.
The Secretary of Public Relations, Katie Graves, organized a town hall style meeting with President Jake Schrum and Provost John Wells to address the concerns of the students and faculty.
The commitment of the attendees is remarkable, as they came in the midst of a small snow (nothing like the snow we had this weekend though).
We appreciate President Schrum and Provost Wells (who traveled 12 hours from a funeral to be with us) for committing to this meeting and being gracious enough to address the concerns of the student government, faculty, and student body.
Students had the option to ask questions directly or write questions anonymously.
We thank the President and Provost for their time and dedication to providing answers to the college and community.
See you soon,
