J.D. Carpenter, Director of Campus Life at Bluefield State College, has been voted "president-elect" of the West Virginia Association of Student Personnel Administrators (WVASPA). Results of the election were announced at last weekend's WVASPA state meeting. He will serve WVASPA in an elected capacity for a three-year cycle, as president-elect through October 1998, then as president for a one-year term, followed by a year's service as immediate past president. WVASPA's "Innovative Program Award" was presented to the Bluefield State College Campus Life Office and the BSC Student Government Association during the meeting. The award recognized BSC's SGA and Campus Life Offices for their efforts in developing and hosting "Leadership Weekend 1997," a three-day retreat designed to cultivate and enhance leadership skills among students and staff at participating two-year and four-year institutions of higher education.
