A group composed of members of Faculty Senate, Student Government Association, and Staff Council will determine where a second college seal will be placed on campus, the SGA president announced Monday during the association’s last meeting of the semester in the health promotions office in Loftin Student Center.
Psychology sophomore Jacob Wong said he received an email from English Professor Dawn Elmore-McCrary, Faculty Senate chair, informing him of the plan.
The other seal removed from the opposite side of the monument west of McCreless Hall on San Pedro Avenue will be placed inside the president’s conference room in Fletcher Administration Center, he said.
Wong said on Thursday that Elmore-McCrary did not provide a date for when the group will meet.
The Ranger reported facilities superintendent David Ortega inspected the way a seal was installed on the monument March 19 to see if the two could be removed. They were later removed.
The Alamo Colleges logo was installed over the college seal during the 2010 winter break.
In other news, Wong said SGA will meet during the summer to plan for a Region 6 Texas Junior College Student Government Association Conference for the fall semester.
He said plans including speakers, food arrangements and hotel accommodations must be finalized before the start of fall classes.
Wong also announced he had been re-elected president and Ariel Reynolds, chemistry sophomore, was elected commissioner.
Wong won his second term as president with 112 votes, and Reynolds won with 120 votes in voting April 30-May 4, SGA adviser and criminal justice Professor Tiffany Cox said.
A special election for vice president and treasurer began Monday because of an error in last week’s election ballot.
The ballot listed Laura Belalcazar, SGA treasurer and criminal justice sophomore, and Mike Martinez, SGA commissioner and anthropology sophomore, as candidates for vice president.
However, Natalie Johnson, digital design sophomore, is running against Martinez, and Belalcazar is running for a second term as treasurer.
Arielle Heidbrink, SGA commissioner and radio-television-film sophomore, is running against Belalcazar for treasurer.
Mark Bigelow, assistant coordinator of leadership and activities, said votes for the positions that were cast on the first ballot did not count.
Online voting for the two contested positions continues until 6 p.m. today.
Wong presented cards to the graduating members of SGA: Rebecca Ross, psychology sophomore and commissioner; Andrea “Bia” Bonilla, vice president and criminal justice sophomore; and Lizzie Allen, education sophomore and secretary.
Commencement is at 10 a.m. Saturday at Freeman Coliseum, 3201 E. Houston. Parking is $5 per vehicle for nonstudents. For more information on graduation, call 210-486-0200.
