Congratulations to the newly elected SBA Officers!!

 

3L Rep: Shawn Spalding

SGA Senators: Colton Biro and Damon McCormick

Technology Rep: Brian Strunk

 

Thanks again to the wonderful outgoing SBA Executive Committee led by SBA President Kristie Wetterer, Vice-President Katie Bennett, Secretary Thomas Stevens, Treasurer Stephanie Loper and Evening Vice President Joe Dunman. You've done a wonderful job and will be terribly missed! 

Souls for Soles

Souls for Soles is a non-profit charity that collects ALL types of shoes, whether they are worn out, high heels, flip flops, or brand new nike shocks. The good pairs of matching shoes go to either victims of poverty in developing countries or to crisis aid relief. The shoes that are mis-matched or in poor condition will be sold to a recycling agency. The money will be used to ship the good shoes to those two aforementioned destinations. High heels and flip flops, or things that don't really fit, are shipped to consignment stores in poverty stricken areas so they can sell to support job creation and training (like Goodwill). In addition, Souls for Soles sends all sorting work to a small disabled community, which pays for their labor in order to supply jobs to people that aren't able to work a typical job because of their disability. Needless to say, Souls for Soles is also a green initiative, encouraging re-use and recycling. 

 

A collection box will be set in the Mosiac Lobby by Friday, April 20th.

If you have any questions, please contact Daniel Trost (dltros01@louisville.edu).  

Collections end the last day of finals: May 4th, 2011.

Attention May Graduates: Hooding Professors/Staff

The SBA has received several emails from students who would like staff (in addition to professors) to be eligible to hood students at graduation. As such, we are starting the poll over again on TWEN. If you have already voted, please vote again. If you have not voted, you're getting a second chance. You can vote for 3 professors. The first round of voting will end at noon on Wednesday. Go to TWEN and add the course "Hooding Professors Poll" and then click on "Customized Polling" to vote. Please email Katie Bennett (ktbenn01@louisville.edu) if you have any questions or problems with the poll.
