The Staff Advisory Council (SAC) is pleased to announce the results of the 2013 election. Please congratulate the seven new SAC representatives from across the university staff: Shana Atkins (Advancement), Shannon Badgett (Budget and Finance Planning), David Carlson (FACS: Warehouse), Matt Clifford (Residence Life and Housing), Susan Edwards (Office of Research and Sponsored Programs), Christy Hill (FACS: Project Management), and Kim Thore (University Stores).
In addition to newly-elected representatives, Karen Frekko (Schools of Business) and Jennifer Killingsworth (Financial & Accounting Services) have been re-elected to serve an additional term. Each SAC representative will serve a term of three years and may be re-elected to serve one additional term.
The SAC received nominations from March 1-22 and held the election from April 8 – April 22. The SAC received a total of 26 unique nominations across the six staff divisions. The overall staff voting participation rate was 36 percent (566 of 1,560 eligible voters). Two divisions, Athletics and Other, did not have any open SAC positions and therefore did not participate in the 2013 election. Click here for a list of SAC divisions.
The SAC would like to thank the representatives whose terms are ending this year: Cathy Chinlund, Debbie Deheck, Teresa Earl, Tomma Guastaferro, Melvin Lee and Donna Thornton.

Wake Forest soon will embark on its next big step in revitalizing Hearn Plaza, following recent improvements that brought a much larger Subway and convenience store to the area.
Preliminary work will begin soon on converting a portion of Poteat Residence Hall into a new dining area that may appear similar to a traditional pub. With some modern, loft-style touches, the dining spot will serve pizza, wings and salads and be appointed with comfortable seating, pool tables, televisions and more. Diagrams and renderings of this new social venue will soon be on display in the Benson Center.
The area set for renovation is now occupied by the campus post office and related package-shipping area below the post office. Initial preparations for the renovation begin within the next month. The new venue will open when the fall 2013 semester begins.
This summer, the post office and package service will move to a new home in Benson University Center. Postal and shipping services now offered in the Poteat Residence Hall space will continue in the first floor of the Benson Center. Until last summer, Residence Life and Housing and Deacon One Card offices were located there.
Decisions on how to use the Poteat and Benson spaces were made after the Office of Campus Life and Leadership sought considerable student input about their interests and preferences. Forums to garner student input were held, too.
Ken Zick, vice president and dean for student affairs, would like to thank all who have contributed to making this possible: the students who have contributed their ideas and vision to this initiative; the staff who have devoted much time and energy to this collaborative effort; and the University offices that have moved from one place to another in recent times to make room for more student-centered places on campus.
