Haskell Indian Nations University’s student senate meeting was once again plagued by the President of The American Indian Studies Club. Who took it upon herself to again yell at the student senate president as a way of intimation.
Only it didn’t work.
Handling herself with poise, Janice Mendez, Haskell’s Student Senate President took control over the senate meeting answered questions about the new BA programs and moved on.
And no AIS Club President you are not allowed to run around Haskell’s campus posting lies about the new BA programs… we think you need to educate yourself some more on those programs go and talk to Phil Homeratha, and stop listening to crazy hair.
And now for the American Indian Higher Education Consortium conference:
Haskell Indian Nations University’s Acting President Venida Chenault has canceled the trip to AIHEC, at least for Haskell’s Student Senate President Janice Mendez. Why? And why was she going last week, but not this one and when was she told she wasn’t going?
Janice should have been sent even if no anyone else was.
Haskell’s Student Senate President goes every year. Did Venida not want Janice in Washington talking to the people on Capital Hill?
Was Venida afraid Janice might really tell them what is going on at Haskell?
And don’t give us that tired excuse that Haskell couldn’t afford it. They were affording it last week.
And if Haskell can afford to send that sad excuse for a Haskell Board of Regents all over the place they can certaily afford to send the president of their student senate to Washington for AIHEC.
We looked on the AIHEC site and found this, looks like they are having it to us:
