UM Student Introduce Legislation to ASB Regarding Flag Poles on Campus

The Ole Miss Class of 2016 is fundraising to gift the Pavilion three flag poles. An ASB Senate member has a creative, all-inclusive idea regarding one of the new flag poles.

Andrew Shaw, senior majoring in Managerial Finance, Real Estate and Banking & Finance with a minor in Marketing, is a part of the Associated Student Body Senate. It may be his first year in the organization, but he is the chair of the Athletics Committee.

Shaw has prepared a legislation regarding the new flag poles soon to be gifted to the Pavilion by the UM Class of 2016.

“The legislation that I have coming to the floor does not directly deal with the bare flag poles. However, it deals with the new flag poles that the senior class is raising funding for,” he said. “My legislation would raise a different color-coded flag on game days of football, men and women’s basketball and volleyball with plans to expand the list of sports covered with future flag poles.”

He anticipates that these flags will raise visibility for many sports, especially for the teams not quite as celebrated as the football team. He hopes to raise game day flags for the Ole Miss soccer and softball team outside the soccer field and the softball complex as well as a flag for the Ole Miss baseball team.
