“The goal is for all students, regardless of gender identity, whether they be transgender, gender nonconforming, or students that identify with their birth sex, to feel accepted and have a place in the [H]omecoming [C]ourt,” the survey read. It then presented options for voting to students.

“This is not binding. It is an interest survey,” Faculty Adviser Steve Tygrett said. “All students will be taking this on Friday during Advisory.”

Junior Class Representative Maya Durham ’19 suggested that the winter formal be held December 1, 2018. The Senate held a vote and the date passed by simple majority.
