As the Missouri Student's Association (MSA) Student Senate Budget Chairman, Brother Jack Blevins led a successful effort to raise the student fee at the University of Missouri. According to Mizzou's Student Newspaper, the Maneater, "The fee covers six different areas. Ellis Library would receive $12, the Counseling Center $8 to provide more staff, and Student Unions $5 to help with maintaining facility and equipment quality. Of the remainder, $5 would go to technology, which would provide expanded TigerWiFi access and more technology in study spaces; $2.50 would go to campus activities such as fall orientation and cultural events; and $2.50 would go to leadership service programs like Mizzou Alternative Breaks". With 9,240 votes the student fee passed with 79% of the vote! Congrats Brother Blevins!
