After two years of inactivity on Wesleyan’s campus, the Black student Association reemerged and conducted their first meeting Thursday, Aug. 30.
BSA President Jay Johnson, mass communication junior, informed attendees that the first even the BSA would participate in is the 2012 Tarrant County Heart Walk, which is a free, three mile event held annually to promote the importance of heart health.
June Johnson, BSA adviser and coordinator of circulation for West Library, said she felt strongly about BSA participating in the Heart Walk because many African-Americans suffer from heart problems. She asked attendees to join one of four Wesleyan teams, one of which she heads as captain.
The Heart Walk will take place at 8:00 a.m. on Sept. 8 in the Fort Worth Stockyards.
The BSA will hold elections for officers Sept. 6. Positions are open for vice president, secretary, treasurer, historian, parliamentarian, social committee chair and public relations chair.
The elections for available BSA positions have been moved to the week of Sept. 10 through 14.
