At the recent shen game on October 6th the color guard was using guns, sowards, and white flags during the halftime preformance and Several other parents and I believe that that this gives the impression that shen is indorsing military industrial complex and give students the impression that it is appropriate to bring weapons on to shen grounds. I would would like to see colorguard eliminate these inappropriate symbols and offer an apology to the shen community for this offensive display. And go back to twirling batons and waving green flags.

At Friday nights Homecoming game I heard a student was taken away by ambulance after vomiting and passing out. Will this be address and I would think this is a perfect opportunity for the school to stress how dangerous, drinking and drugs can be.
