President, KSG Host Town Hall Meeting By Matthew White and Isaac Meadows Technician Editors In cooperation with Student Government, Kettering President Dr. Stan Liberty and members of his cabinet addressed students yesterday in a forum-style meeting. Dr. Liberty was joined by Ms. Susan Bolt, Vice President for Administration and Finance; Ms. Karen Full, Director of Undergraduate Admissions; Ms. Betsy Homsher, Dean of Students; Ms. Pat Mroczek, Chief Public Relations Officer; Mr. Bob Nichols, Director of External Affairs; Ms. Venetia Petteway, Corporate Relations Executive; Dr. Robert Simpson, Provost; Ms. Deborah Stewart, Director of Student Life; and Ms. Viola Sprague, Executive Director of Information Technology. The administrators discussed improvements and changes within their respective fields, called upon students to assist in planning for the future, and provided answers to questions posed to them. Student questions, some submitted ahead of time by The Technician, included co-op topics, capital investments in classrooms, depletion of Federal Work Study funds, and the availability of parking. Dr. Liberty and his cabinet addressed student questions promptly, giving pointed and concise answers. Editor’s Note: For more on administration’s meeting with students, look for the full article in the next edition of  The Technician.
