Employee Council visits
Oxford for elections

By Eric Rangus

Employee Council held its 2001-02 officer elections at its February meeting in Seney Hall at Oxford College, Feb. 21. Oxford representative Mary Barnes organized the event, and Oxford Dean Dana Greene welcomed the council. More than one-third of those in attendence had never visited the campus before.

Cheryl Bowie, currently council secretary, was chosen president-elect. She will take over leadership of the council when current president-elect Bill McBride completes his term in 2002.

Cheryl Sroka was named secretary-elect, Meredith Honeycutt was elected historian, and Joyce Bergere and Geraldine Thomas were re-elected parliamentarian and treasurer, respectively.
Gloria Weaver McCord, director of Disability Services, was guest speaker, and she gave a rousing and passionate address concerning diversity not only in the workplace, but in the wider community as well.

“Sometimes I just want to stand on top of the Admin-istration Building and scream, ‘Can’t we all just get along!’” she said.

McCord also distributed a short diversity test, which council members completed and discussed.
The next Employee Council meeting will be held March 21 in the Luce Center.
