President's Report
- I have an application for Howdy Week. You go around and stick stickers on people.
- Greek awards for this year will be presented at a banquet on Tuesday, April 17, at 6 PM. Dress will be formal, as the event will be in the ballroom. We'll do this instead of dinner on Tuesday. It'll be Union catered. I will RSVP for 5 people. I won't be there, so somebody will have to pick up the plaque.
