Going Places...


This was a big weekend for all the clubs and organizations on campus (over 85!!!) because there was funding hearings that would decide how much funding organizations would receive in response to their requests. Each organization that made a request is given an opportunity to plead their case (why they should such-and-such money) followed by a Q & A session with entire committee, then finishing with a funding verdict. Its pretty nerve wrecking. The Taekwondo Club was one of the many organizations that applied for funding so all week myself, club president and the club treasurer prepared for the hearing. The club wants to compete in a national collegiate Taekwondo tournament in California to compete, advance their skills and promote the UMM at a national event. After much debate the committee gave us more than fair funding for part of the trip's expenses. With some more fund-raising, the Taekwondo Club's highest goal might become a reality. HUZZAH!!!!!
