Dr. Debbie Cottrell recently welcomed nine new members to the Black & Gold President's Council. Now in its ninth year, BGPC requires that students be classified as juniors or seniors for the upcoming academic year and that they be nominated by a faculty or staff member. Once nominated, candidates submit an application and undergo an intense interview process. If chosen, they’re expected to maintain a 3.0 G.P.A., remain active within the campus community, and attend numerous events as representatives of the university. Congratulations to Mariela Candelario, Brandon Chaney, Kody Clements, Damilola Fagade, Antonio Flores, Elise Grey, Hannah Martin, Raquel Morris, and Audrey West!
