ADM- Some departments have not spent allotted ADM funds. This must be done by May 9th.

SIT/Department Chairs- By the end of next week, please hold a department meeting in order to elect your SIT rep and Department Chair. This should be done by secret ballot. Send the names to Mr. Jolley by May 13th.
