SGA grants mini-grant for student memorial marker

At the Student Government’s Association meeting on Nov. 6, members voted to allocate a mini grant of $1,900 for a new student memorial marker. This marker is to commemorate the students who have died while attending the University of North Georgia. There’s currently a marker beside the flagpole for this campus, but there’s no more room to add any more names. It has not been determined where this new one will be placed yet.
