Legislation to eliminate the Reveille, Fort Hays State University's yearbook, will be introduced Thursday, March 27, at a Student Senate meeting, the Student Government Association executive staff has announced.
In a message to student senators, Student Body President Daron Jamison, Quinter senior, encouraged senators to begin educating themselves about the history and current need of the program. He also said that it was important to have a thorough discussion of the issue before it is brought to a vote.
"The yearbook has been a contentious issue in Student Senate the last couple of years," said Jamison. "Fewer and fewer students are buying the yearbook. Most students do not care if they are even in the yearbook, which is evident by the numbers who actually take the time to have their picture taken. This is a serious and important decision and it must be made with the future of our institution in mind."
Student Body Vice President Rigo Ramirez, Great Bend senior, said that it is important for students to voice their opinion on this issue.
"I encourage students to contact their senator or the Student Government office if they would like to express their views," he said.
Students are encouraged to e-mail comments to the student body president at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the Student Government Web site at www.fhsu.edu/sga and find the contact information for their senators.
The March 27 meeting will start at 7 p.m. in the Memorial Union Black and Gold Room. All students are welcome to attend the meeting and voice their opinions during the "Student Forum" section of the meeting. Please stop by the Student Government office in the Memorial Union or call 628-5311 if you have any questions.
