Senior Class president bids GSU adieu

As my tenure as your senior class president comes to a bittersweet end, I am compelled to reflect over the past year and the many milestones and accomplishments that we have achieved.Aside from two major career fairs, the senior class hosted several resume writing workshops, mock interviews, receptions, and seminars.

All of our success would not have been possible without the continued support of our class senators, William Graves, Jenita Blue, and Janean Brown. Thank you all so much for displaying a true commitment to the Class of 2009.

Also, I want to thank Akira Blackmon, Janaya Scott, and Yalonda Worthy, who publicized all of our events and made sure we had flyers up for all of our functions.

The senior class of 2009 has been very fortunate to have Mrs. Adrienne Willis, assistant director of career services, as a sponsor. She consistently went above and beyond the call of duty in helping our class not only receive good jobs, but higher-paying and better quality jobs as well.

Despite the fact that the funds for the senior class were held hostage by the Office of Student Affairs for the entire semester, we were able to hold many functions and provide refreshments at the majority of our events. This was entirely because of the grace and generosity of Mrs. Willis and the Office of Career Services.

And last but not least I want to thank the person that I have learned the most from over the past year. The person who at times performed the role of the Senior Class Vice-president, secretary, treasurer, and public relations director: our vice-president Staci Hall. There is no one who worked harder and displayed more commitment and dedication over the past year that Staci. She kept me and the other officers on task and spearheaded the majority of our activities. Our prosperity would not have been possible without Staci’s leadership and guidance.

Finally, to the Grambling State University Class of 2009: thank you for allowing me the opportunity to serve as your Senior Class President 2008-09. I have learned more than I ever could have imagined about myself, other people, and being a leader. I am truly grateful and consider it a privilege to have served as your president.

Remember graduation rehearsal on Thursday at 9 a.m. in the Student Assembly Center. I wish all of you the best of luck and continued success in the future.
