New "Bridge over the Pond
Approved for Fall
By Jenny Forehand .
In just a few short months HSU will
begin construction of a bridge over the
campus pond. The erection of the monu-
ment is dedicated to Judge K.K. Leggett
one of HSU's founders. The bridge will
also bear his name.
Its construction will be finished
between March and April 2002 and a ribbon-cutting
ceremony is scheduled for
May 10 2002.
The Continental Bridge Company of
Minnesota is constructing the bridge
which will cost $35000.
HSU student Erin Maddox is the head
of the Campus Beautification Committee
of Student Congress and will be heading
The strong push for the bridge is more
than a desire for one more adornment to
make the campus more beautiful.
Maddox says there is also symbolic
meaning in the bridge of promoting unity
on campus. "We want to start focusing on
campus unity while still keeping identi-
ties" said Maddox. "We don't want to
lose what makes us different but we want
to support each other by our uniqueness.

Besides uniting the campus student
congress is also looking to tie the commu-
nity into bridge. Ideally all of Abilene
would be involved.
To raise the necessary funds Student
Congress plans to do a lot of door to door
fundraising petitioning businesses for aid
putting on a foot function hosting an
academic tournament and putting on a
Those in Student Congress realize that
while people are generally willing to help
raising such a significant sum should not
be taken lightly or put off until the last
minute. Unlike schoolwork there is no
way for them to pull an "all-nighter" and
Accordingly representatives have
already completed two fundraisers: a
dessert theater and a car wash. The car
wash was free to all HSU students and
faculty as an expression of thanks but
donations were accepted.
Representatives declined to say exact-
ly how much was raised but they did
indicate it was a good amount.
Anyone wishing to help symbolically
bridge the gaps of this campus can first of
all actively participate and attend the
'' fundraisers. Persons wanting to make
donations can send it to Student Congress
Anyone giving over $1000 will have
his or her name on the bridge.
