CAB delays elections for presidency

Daniel King


Officer elections were postponed at the weekly scheduled meeting of the Campus Activities Board Wednesday.

   Due to the absence of two CAB members, elections will be held at the Sept. 14 meeting at 3 p.m.  at the CAB office.

   CAB members announced a moment of silence will be held at Cunningham Park Sunday morning, where the flag that was taken from the rubble of the World Trade Center Twin Towers after 9/11 will be presented.

   The flag has been traveling across America and will be stopping in Joplin for a ceremony. The flag represents the coming together of the people of the United States and Joplin; students will be able to sew messages of togetherness and hope to the flag at a stitch ceremony at 8 a.m. Sunday morning. The flag will end its journey at the National 9/11 Memorial Museum being built at the World Trade Center site in lower Manhattan.

   In other business, CAB announced MSSU will hold a serve-a-thon in honor of each victim lost in the 9/11 terrorist attack and the Joplin tornado.

   The serve-a-thon 10x10x10 challenge encourages a team leader to register ten people who individually collect ten pledges for ten dollars each in support of their service and in observation of the national day of service and remembrance.

   Students offering their service will be given transcript credit.

   At 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 22, CAB members will meet at the CAB office to decorate for Homecoming. The theme for Homecoming this year is “Hollywood.”
