Handleman named interim
vice president of advancement
By Fli/abeth T. Lamb
Managing Editor/The Rambler
( arcn Handleman, former
diiector ot development for special
gifts, lias been named as interim vice
president of advancement. Subie
Green, former vice president of
advancement, resigned in late
August to accept the position of
director of developemnt for the
< inters for Disease Control in
Atlanta. Green had been with
Wesleyan for three years.
"Jake asked me if I would take
it (position) on when Subie resigned.
I shadowed Subie until she left on
Sept. 15, to learn as much as.possi-
ble," said Handleman.
The university is conducting a
nationwide search to fill the position
and Handleman said she is applying
for the permanent position.
President Jake Schrum said, "1
will be quietly callirig people 1 know
around the country to see if they
know anyone who could fill the
position. We will also advertise in
the Chronicles of Higher Education.
1 would like to have at least two or
three finalists by November and
make an offer by the end of the
semester. Caren's application will
be taken very seriously,"
Handleman said that the struc-
ture of the advancement division
would remain unchanged. The divi-
sion consists of four departments:
annual fund, directed by Julie
MacMillan; alumni relations, direct-
ed by Quentin McGown; communi-
cations, directed by Sherrie
Drakeford; and major gifts, which
will be directed by Handleman in
conjunction with the vice president
"1 will provide administrative
support to ensure all activities and
goals of the departments are
reached. The goal of any adminis-
tration is to get rid of obstacles and
to make,sure everyone works togeth-
er. All of Jlhe advancement depart-
ments are interdependent so commu-
nication is important. We depend on
each other to reach the goals of the
entire division," said Handleman.
As director of major gifts,
Handleman was responsible for
researching and cultivating prospec-
"I worked with the faculty to
find out what was going on in their
areas and then tried to match those
activities with donors. Essentially, I
was a matchmaker. I enjoy fundrais-
ing and Texas Wesleyan. It's such a
good school in a good place in terms
of enrollment and financial stability.
"I couldn't raise money for just

anything. It gives me personal plea- ,
sure to help an institution grow
stronger. As a fundraising officer, it
is my job to make donors loyal to the
institution, not to the individual, and
that is done through cultivation,"
As interim, Handleman will
work on the capital campaign.
"First, we must set up the council
and decide who will be on it. Then
a feasibility study will be conducted
to determine what resources are
needed and how they can be used.'
We hope to complete this phase in
the next couple of months," said
Handleman said her biggest
challenge will be to keep the divi-
sion moving ahead to meet the 95-96
$850,000 fundraising goal. Rosie
the Riveter gives encouragement to
Handleman. She can look to her left
and see Rosie in a painting flexing
her arm and saying "We can do it!"
"The painting is from, the 1940s
Radio Hour, spring musical. Joe
Brown, chair of the theater depart-
ment, brought it over. It made
sense," said Handleman.
Handleman, who has been at
Wesleyan since February, came from
Bingham Child Guidance Center in
Louisville, Ky., an affiliate of the
University of Kentucky School of
Medicine where she was director of
SGA votes on proposed gay organization
By Herman McKissic and Stephen
The Gay, Lesbian and Extras
(G.L.E.) Club, proposed by Angela
Gant, theater major, was approved
by the ' Student Government
Association (SGA) by a 5-2 vote
last Thursday. It requires approval
by the Committee on Student Life
and President Jake Schrum before it
can be an official campus organiza-
"The G.L.E. Club wants to cre-
ate awareness of gay and lesbian
issues on campus, be involved in
campus activities, be a positive
force on campus and be an outlet
for students," Gant said.
The proposed G.L.E. club
would be open to full- and part-time
Wesleyan students, faculty and staff
regardless of sexual orientation.
Gant said the club would not "out"
(disclose the sexual orientation, of
any member who did not want this
information made public.)
Gant said the organization
would be a "positive light" and
would add "more diversity" to the
campus. She said she expects some
negative reaction to the idea of a
gay and lesbian organization but
she said she hopes positive interac-
tion between students can open up
minds and hearts to the idea.
She said she wants the club to
be an outlet where students can
come and express their beliefs and
ideas, decide the issues which are
most important to them and have an
atmosphere which supports positive
growth and the expansion of stu-
"We hope that the student pop-
ulation will see the organization for
the purpose it serves for all," Gant
Tweny-one people haVe signed
up for membership so far.
The two members of SGA who
voted against the G.L.E. club were
Kristi With, vice president, and
Aaron Young, representative of the
school of science and humanities.
"I was under the impression
that Wesleyan is a school with a
religious affiliation," Young said.
"I don't see why we bother having
religious.ties when there is material
in the Old Testament of the Bible
against homosexuality. I'm not
saying they can't have their own
opinion but it shouldn't be at a
Young pointed out that the stu-
dent handbook does not mention
sexual orientation when listing who
the university does not discriminate
Joe Brown, head of the theater
department, will be the G.L.E.
Club's faculty sponsor. For more

Golden Shears awards two
for activities, achievements
By Kathy Walker
Upholding a Rambler tradition initiated in 1938, the Guardians
of the Golden Shears Committee (GGSC) presented Selinda
Passmore, senior double major in accounting and legal studies, and
Kenn Wardle, senior marketing major, with the Golden Shears
Award for outstanding achievement in campus involvement and aca-
The awards were, presented at the Convocation ceremony held
Sept. 19 during free period. Passmore, daughter of Sue Passmore,
education department professor, is a member of the Student •
Activities Committee, secretary for the Phi Alpha Delta pre-law fra-
ternity and president of Alpha Xi Delta, a social sorority.
She is also a peer leadership trainer for the Wesleyan Peer
Leadership Institute as well as a volunteer lor Habitat for Humanity
and Volunteer Wesleyan.
"I've always wanted to receive it (Golden Shears Award) before
I graduated. I am excited to be among those who have preceded me
in the award. It is an honor to be among this group of people," said
Kenn Wardle, senior marketing major, and Selinda Passmore, dou-
ble major in accounting and legal studies, received the Golden
Shears award on Tuesday, Sept. 19 during Convocation.

Wardle is a past president and the current treasurer of Lambda
Chi Alpha, social fraternity and was former president of the
lnterfraternity Council. He is the residence assistant (RA) for
Mulkey Hall, a peer leadership trainer for the Wesleyan Peer
Leadership Institute, a member of Student Ambassadors and a mem-
ber of Mortar Board.
Wardle served on the Student Activities Committee and last
year was a member of Phi Beta Lambda. He is a recipient of the
Holly, Tiller and Wesleyan Fellowship scholarships and he currently
. serves an internship with Sundance Square management.
When asked how he felt about receiving the Golden Shears
Award, Wardle responded, "Wow! It was a total shock. 1 had no
idea. Matthew Brown, my roommate ( chair GGSC ), did a good
job of keeping it from me."
GGSC awards students who are actively involved on campus
while maintaining a high academic standard and recipients are cho-
sen from a committee composed of previous Golderi Shears recipi-
ents. Approximately eight students are chosen each semester.
Wardle was not the only one surprised by Brown. As an added
highlight, GGSC awarded Quentin McGowq, director of alumni and
constituency relations, with the honor of being its first alumni recipi-
ent of the Golden Shears.
McGown, a Wesleyan graduate, has been with the university
since 1990, its centennial year. According to Brown, McGown is an
important contributor to the success of the committee, lie currently
volunteers as adviser for GGSC in assistant professor of music Jeff
Walter's absence. He keeps the organization's records, coordinates
its annual breakfast and inscribes all award certificates in calligra-
phy, said Brown.
According to Brown, to successfully keep McGown from dis-
covering the GGSC plan to award him. Brown had to wait for an
opportune moment to remove a blank certificate from his office.
The blank certificate was presented to McGown along with an apol-
ogy and a promise to have his name inscribed.
."Quentin has been an integral part of the organization for as
long as I can remember," said Brown, "it was an honor for GGSC to
name him as its first alumni recipient." he said.
Student Bookstore were better and
they were willing to negotiate the
price," said Rachel Pilcher, a sopho-
more English/history major.
"If you're willing to spend a
lot of money, it (the Wesleyan book-
store) is convenient," she sajd,
"The ladies who work there arc
really nice, rhey're the sweetest
"Their prices arc astronomi-
cal/' said Carol Jones, a senior busi-
ness psychology major. "As far as
supplies, I never buy supplies there.
"The first semester I Was here I
used the bookstore, but I investigat-
ed and decided lo buy books and
supplies at-other places," Jones
"You don't want lo hear what I
have to say about that (Wesleyan)
bookstore. It's horrible," said Linda
Morgan, a senior psychology major.
"They say they're such a better deal
but I just don't see how."
Morgan said she buys her texts
books from other students.
Students wishing to buy text-
books from locations other than the
Wesleyan bookstore must either
wait for a professor's syllabus or
visit the Wesleyan bookstore in per-

the authors of texts over the tele-
