SGA votes for campus digital welcome sign
The Student Government Association passed a resolution Tuesday evening to install a digital welcome sign at the entrance to campus.
According to resolution SR-02, the installation of the digital sign will exemplify A-State with new technology that will be used for advertising events and welcoming guests to ASU.
“Most other universities that I have visited have a sign like this. It’s great to kind of let the community know what’s going on,” said Senator Alex Dozier.
Senator Myka Robertson asked who would be contacted for announcements within the sign.
SGA President D’Andre Anderson said either Facilities Management or the ASU communications department would manage news and information updates on the sign.
The SGA Action Fund Commissioner, Fallon Maulding, asked where the digital welcome sign would be located on campus.
The digital sign would be placed on the corner of Aggie Road and Red Wolf Boulevard, said SGA Secretary Colea Blann in an email interview.
“As far as the cost, that is being determined through multiple departments so that information has not officially been disclosed,” Blann said. “However, facilities management is on board for the idea.”
The resolution passed with a unanimous vote.
Corporal Traci Simpson attended the meeting to offer an apology for the lack of University Police Department representation at SGA meetings.
“The past couple of years we’ve had an officer usually that’s been made to attend all y’alls meetings. Sometimes I have something to say, sometimes I don’t,” Simpson said. “Basically, we just want to attend the meetings to let you know that we’re here to work with you, to work with the students, faculty and staff and I apologize for that and I feel like we kind of let you all down.”
Simpson explained her duties have grown greatly in the department but it caused her to send another officer to attend the meetings.
Simpson found out about two weeks ago that the officer hadn’t been attending and had moved on to another job.
“I mainly want to apologize to all of you all tonight that he’s not been coming here and I feel like I’ve let you all down,” Simpson said, “and to promise you that will be attending the rest of the meetings and if not, I’m sure I will get an officer up here next time if I have to miss for any reason. There will be one to represent our department to here you all’s needs, complaints, wants; things that we can do to help you all.”
The next SGA meeting will be held at 5:30 p.m. Feb. 25 on the eighth floor of the Dean B. Ellis Library.
