Board of Advisors
Dan Starliper reported that the Shepherd College Board of Advisors met on January 18, 2001. Please see his attached report.

Scholarship Committee
Karen Wempe reported that the committee has not met, but there is a proposal to consider doing something at the Contemporary American Theater Festival this summer. REMINDER: All applications for the Classified Employees Children's Scholarship Fund are due in the Financial Aid Office by March 1, 2001.

Staff Development
Cholesterol screening has been scheduled for March 15 at the Health Center sponsored by Classified Employees' Staff Development. This will be a full lipid profile requiring a 12-hour fast. This screening is limited to 50 staff members. You must call Ext. 5161 to schedule a time.

Buildings and Grounds Committee
Karen Wempe reported that one new item was brought before this committee. Wayne Riser requested that Shepherd install batting cages between Thacher Hall and the baseball field for the Ripken baseball camp that will be held here this summer. The committee suggested that the batting cages be built so they can be moved.

Even though the compacts were already sent to the proper authorities, Anna Mary requested Council's approval of them. It was M/S/P "that Shepherd College's and the Community/Technical College at Shepherd's compacts be approved by the Classified Employees' Council.

Old Business
A meeting to discuss the Route 480 crosswalk was held on Tuesday, January 9, at 1 p.m. in Room 104, Knutti Hall. Larry Deitz of the WV Division of Highways suggested that the town and the college write a letter that indicates their support of flashing lights to be installed in the crosswalk. He also suggested that it would be much better if the town and the college could apply for grant money to purchase the system but did not rule out the expense being paid for by DOH.

A question was asked regarding the ServiceMaster contract. As far as we know, we are still on a monthly basis.

The housekeepers in Turner Hall are still very concerned about the continual trash problem in that residence hall as well as residue dripping from the double bags as theyıre carried down the stairs.

We're only 1/3 of the way in having enough money to buy a brick for the library inscribed with "Shepherd College Classified Employees." Please give your coins or dollars to Ken Harbaugh (Ikenberry Hall), Johnette Jackson (Butcher Center), or Anna Mary Walsh (Knutti Hall).

New Business
No new business was introduced at this meeting.

Cheryl Layton announced that Dr. Rachel Schipper has begun her job as the new director of the Scarborough Library.

Dan Starliper announced that Dr. Dunlop has approved Jacqueline Grantham for catastrophic leave. If you would like to donate annual or sick leave to Jacqueline, please contact the Office of Human Resources.
