Students seek to revive Centenary traditions

SHREVEPORT, LA — Centenary's Student Government Association (SGA), a body of student representatives, is hoping to revive past traditions to build Centenary school spirit and pride this year. The group is turning to alumni to help bolster the effort.

"We believe that traditions really define the culture of the school," said SGA President Greg Ewing. "We're going to be looking to the past to see if there were any prominent traditions that died out that might be worth bringing back, and what better people to ask than our alumni? We're looking for any and all traditions. Once we have suggestions, we will begin sifting through them to find possible candidates for revival."

The SGA hopes that the revived traditions will enhance the Centenary experience. Alumni are encouraged to send their tradition memories in to Saige Solomon '05, Director of Alumni and Family Relations, at email.

The Centenary SGA seeks to serve by supporting student endeavors, functioning as the students' liaison to the faculty and staff, and initiating change in the campus and community in order to enhance the Centenary experience:
