It was a good organizational meeting preparing for the SGA state convention in April and Community College Day on Feb. 7 in Austin.

“The kids had a wonderful time,” said SGA Advisor and Student Life Director Kenneth Webb. “We also had a Region III unity project, Operation Christmas Child, where shoe boxes were filled with soap, toothpaste, crayons, etc., for children. PJC donated socks and a washcloth for each box - 100 in all.”

The Presidents of each school had discussion before the big meeting was held, the Vice President of each school talked about the vote that would be held at the meeting, which was adding section 3 of the constitution to the voting procedures at the upcoming State Convention. While those discussions were going, everyone else was taking part in a unity project.

At the main meeting PJC Treasurer Hannah Garrett (who also serves as Region 3 Treasurer), discussed the budget of the region. Delegates approved the budget and voted to approve adding the new section of the constitution to the voting procedures for the State Convention.
