Rise and shine, readers, and happy hump day!
Students and faculty at UNCG are planning a walkout and rally today at 1 p.m. outside of the Elliott University Center (main campus building).
“Our demands are simple: Expand education, not administration. Cut our debt, not our budget!” a Facebook page for the event says. [Triad City Beat will cover the action, so stay posted.]
In case you missed it, here’s a quick round up of some brief news items from yesterday:
- Winston-Salem State announced that Health & Sciences Dean Peggy Valentine was appointed to a national advisory committee by the US secretary of health & human services.
- Greensboro Fire Capt. Sterling Suddarth was released from Baptist Hospital in Winston-Salem yesterday. Suddarth is the last of the firefighters injured in a massive blaze on South Elm Street on Jan. 30 to leave the hospital, the department said.
- Only four schools in the state were named to a national “State School of Character” list, and all four are in Guilford County, according to Guilford County Schools.
- The city of Greensboro created a page on its website for documents pertaining to the city’s loan to the International Civil Rights Center & Museum, the city said yesterday. Weigh in on the issue here.
