Jan. 15 and 16. Twelve colleges
and approximately 150 people
attended the two day event ac­
cording to Baker.
“The most valuable thing
about the conference was the
training that was available for
student government and
publications people,” said
Neale Frothingham, ASG Presi­
dent. The conference was a
multi-faceted event designed to
improve skills of student leaders
and journalism students.
The event opened Friday at 1
p.m. with a luncheon which
featured a witty yet informative
speech by Paul Linnman of
Channel Two News. At 3 p.m.

Counseling center remodeled

Feature Editor
“There are going to be ad­
justments,” commented Art
Hames, Counseling Director, on
the remodeling in the Community
Center. “It was an abrupt
change.” He also adds that the
The changes were brought
about due to overcrowding in
some of the CC offices and other
such problems.
“Most of the major work was
done in the week between
Christmas and New Year’s,” ex­
plained Debbie Baker, Director
of Student Activities. There are
little things still being done.
The changes are as follows:
1. The Handicap and Veteran’s
office is now connected to the rest
of the Counseling department.
2. There is now a private con­
ference room for students with
transcript difficulties and other
related problems. 3.The Evening

The Clackamas College
Board of Education has
established an endowed scholar­
ship honoring board member
Bill Gregory, who died last Oc­
tober. Interest earnings from
the William C. Gregory
Memorial Endowment will pro­
vide one scholarship each year
to a deserving CCC student.
The college will provide up to
$6,000 in matching money if an
equal amount can be raised in
donations. Board member
Larry Wright and Earl Zinck, a
retired business instructor, will
lead the fundraising effort.
Gregory, a West Linn resi­
dent, has been a member of the
CCC Board since 1970, serving
four terms as chairman. In
1986, he was awarded the
Clackamas Community College

issues that ASG could not res­
pond to on behalf of its
students. This decision will have
a drastic effect on the cost and
variety of an education at
Clackamas Community Col­
lege. It is an issue that will re­
quire intensive effort on the
part of ASG. The decision must
be overturned to protect
students from the negative ef­
fects of semester conversion.
Quality cost effective enter­
tainment for the students has
also been an issue. ASG
through its Entertainment
Coordinator and Senators has
been working successfully to
meet the student demand for
programing that will reach a
larger and more diverse group
of students for the dollar than it
has in the past. Attendance at
this year’s first dance was well
above last year’s average, as
was the attendance at the mini­
programs in the Community
Center Mall. ASG would like to
continue to meet the demand
for these services for its consti­

ASG meets GPA’s
All of the members of the
Associated Student Government
met academic requirements to re­
main in ASG. At the conclusion
of Fall Term no one was
academically ineligible to hold of­

The overall average GPA of
ASG for Fall Term was 3.03. The
overall average credits of ASG
were 14.3 credit hours.
