MORE THAN 50 New Windsor Middle School pupils have joined to form a Student Government Association to learn about leadership and get more active in the community. "I was always active in student government when I was in high school," said Becky Tregoning, a seventh-grade language arts teacher who organized the group. "I decided to form it so kids could get exposed to student government before they get to high school." Tregoning noted that every high school has an SGA, but few middle schools do. The group's main focus, she said, will be community service.

In the case of Towson University, it has done everything possible to deny a projected white student union the right to form on campus - backed by its SGA - and this flying in the face of the fact that, as it admits, two-thirds of the current student body is - you guessed it!
