In attendance:  Dan Craig, President; Reyna Meyers, Vice President; Karen Cristobal, Secretary/Treasurer; Leslie Berning-Wright, alternate - Area 3; Liesa Kister, Area 4; Jim Moyer, Area 7; Tori Ruiz, Area 1.

Scholarship discussion:

Council discussed the scholarship award, and form.  There are some concerns about the wording, and the question was raised – can the wording be changed if we need to clarify a requirement or eligibility factor?  Karen will report back after checking with accounting.

Council will award (as stated in the agreement) two $500 scholarships this year, from the scholarship fund, and will replenish that fund with a transfer of $1000 from the general council account.  These awards will be announced at the April 9th Awards Banquet.

There was discussion about how to solicit applications as well as the requirements of the scholarship award.

Tori said she has forms that she can modify to meet this application process need.  There was discussion about what essay question will be listed for applicants to respond to.  No decisions were made.

Leslie volunteered to collect the applications for this scholarship.

Tori will work on the application form and report back to council.

It was agreed that applications will be due by March 21st.  Nominations should be sent to Leslie and she will forward to council members.

At next council meeting, a task force will be put together to work on the procedures of the scholarship award so that future years will have a procedure to follow.

Other Business:

There was some discussion about faculty and staff campaign.  It was generally agreed that council will not be directly involved in this.

Meeting was adjourned at 3:15.
