Yesterday, with the kickoff of the senior vote for a class gift, Senior Class President Ben Singer urged seniors to vote on the Unsung Founders gift. Today on the last day of voting, I urge those seniors who have yet to cast their vote to consider all three gift choices. The Memorial Hall marquee and the need-based scholarship are equally valuable contributions to our UNC community.
The Memorial Hall transformation will provide UNC with greater access to cultural, educational and entertaining events while restoring one of the University's most historic buildings. The scholarship helps ensure that a student facing unexpected hardship can continue to pursue his/her education at Carolina. And the Unsung Founders memorial also contributes by remembering those laborers responsible for developing our campus.
The senior gift is a chance for seniors to thank this university for providing us with the foundation we need for our future successes. The gift is not supposed to divide the class, it is supposed to unite it. Regardless of whether or not the gift for which you voted wins the most votes, I ask you to give your unconditional support to the selected gift out of respect for that with which the University has provided for the last four years.
