MOUNT VERNON— Recently, Brewton-Parker College underwent some struggles and continued to grow under a few of the new administration changes. A large change that has affected campus life was Brewton-Parker College’s work and school week shortened to four days. With this adjustment, many students around campus felt that curfew should also reflect the new schedule change.
Upon learning of his fellow classmates’ request, SGA Senator David Dixon took charge and formed a proposal asking to extend curfew for Thursday nights from 1:00 a.m. to 2:30 a.m. The SGA presented this proposal to the Executive Staff with high hopes. On Monday, February 27, the Executive Staff approved the proposal. This welcomed adjustment went into effect on March 8, 2012, marking a milestone in Brewton-Parker SGA history as the first time since 2006, that SGA senators have been able to propose a change regarding curfew.
After learning that the Executive Staff approved his proposal, SGA Senator David Dixon stated, “First, I would like to thank God. Nothing is possible without him. I would like to thank the administration for hearing the voices of the students and approving the proposal to change curfew. These are great days, not only for SGA, but for Brewton-Parker College. SGA will continue to be a strong voice for the student body. God bless.”
SGA President Jonathan D. Brown shared his thoughts as well. “I would like to offer our many thanks to the Executive Staff for their consideration and approval of this momentous change. This change is evidence of our college, and its administration, progressing in a positive way.”
The mission of Brewton-Parker College, a Georgia Baptist college, is to develop the whole student through the application of Biblically-centered truth to a liberal arts curriculum in a community of shared Christian values.
