Slippery Rock Student Government Association awarded $11,890 to SRU Wind Ensemble and elected two new senators Monday night.

Wind Ensemble will use this money to purchase two new euphoniums, which club president Clint Bleil described as a “little tuba.”

Noting that the club’s current euphonixums are of poor quality, Bleil said, “when one section has bad instruments, it affects how we sound as a whole.”

While the instruments will only be used by Wind Ensemble, Bliel indicated that anyone is welcome to join the 75-member organization.

Additionally, Emily Shorr and Blake Souders were elected to SGA’s senate.

Shorr, a secondary history education major, will serve as a commuter senator.

As a commuter and a transfer student, she said she felt she had the background to improve the experiences of other students in similar situations.

Souders, a freshman undeclared business major, will serve as a Rhoads Hall senator.

Citing an experience where he captured a mouse in his floor’s bathroom after maintenance had neglected to do so, he said he felt like a leader in Rhoads Hall.

SGA Parliamentarian Rachel Lawler announced that election packets for next year’s SGA are available and will be due to the student secretary desk in the Center for Student Involvement and Leadership (CSIL) by 4 p.m. on Wednesday, March 23 for anyone wishing to run for a position.

The next SGA meeting will be held on March 28 at 8:45 p.m. in the Smith Student Center theater.
