State Sen. Joe Getty (R-Dist. 5) was recently honored by the Carroll County Student Government Association with its 2012 Friend of the CCSGA award. "Senator Getty was phenomenal last year in his dedication to helping the students," said Angela Bladen, a 2012 graduate of Francis Scott Key High School who served as the student representative to the county Board of Education during the 2011-2012 school year. During the 2012 legislative session of the General Assembly, the student government association initiated a legislative proposal that would make the current practice by which a student representative serves on the Carroll County Board of Education a requirement under state law. The Carroll County Senate Delegation introduced the proposal as Senate Bill 660. The bill passed the Senate by a vote of 47-0 but died in the House of Delegates.

The state university system has cut more than $100 million from its 2010 budget in response to shortfalls in the state budget. As the system's largest campus, College Park has taken the biggest hits and will have to cut about $48 million by the end of the fiscal year in June.
