A resolution, which aims to recognize faculty and staff on the Troy campus, was passed during the most recent meeting of the SGA officers and senators.
Old business being concluded from the previous week’s meeting included voting on the two resolutions that were placed on docket. The first resolution reintroduced for a vote was on the system for a faculty/staff recognition system from the SGA.  “For some time we’ve wanted to put a system into place to recognize faculty and staff,” said Senator Becca Lindsey, a senior elementary education major from Opelika. “Many of the people here in Troy do a lot in education and leadership and that should be recognized.”
Applications to nominate faculty and staff that are believed to be deserving should be out in the near future and will be available in the SGA office.
The second resolution that was finally put to vote and passed unanimously was to
put a Redbox movie rental station on campus.  The SGA has been working closely with the university to see this resolution through and ensure that it will become a reality.
The last item of old business that was covered was taking the constitution for the Anime and Manga Enthusiasts off the table and voting to recognize it as an official student organization.
The Constitutionality and Rules committee tabled the constitution last week for further review, in order to allow the committee to check the formatting and make sure the constitution was written correctly.
Upon further review nothing was found amiss within the organization’s proposed constitution, therefore it was presented to the SGA for voting.
After a brief explanation of the reason for tabling, the constitution was put to a vote and was passed unanimously, allowing the Anime and Manga Enthusiasts to become an official student organization.
The executive officers had lots of praise to share with the SGA regarding the work that they have accomplished so far.
“I just wanted to compliment everyone on their good work with these resolutions.  We’ve gotten lots of good publicity, and it’s great to see us working closely with the university,” said Senator Elizabeth Finley, a senior accounting major from Millbrook and chair of the Constitutionality and Rules committee.
SGA meetings are held every Tuesday beginning at 6:30 p.m., and students are always welcome to attend.
