ALUMNUS ON THE MOVE 



FACULTY NEWS 



SPOTLIGHTING W. ELMER GEORGE 

OGLETHORPE GRADUATE -CLASS OF 1939 

Mr. George is presently the EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR of 
the GEORGIA MUNICIPAL ASSOCIATION and has held 
this position for twelve years. In this capacity he works 
for and with every mayor in Georgia. Mr. George began 
this job with four basic aims — tax equalization, ridding 
the state of the fee system, balanced representation in 
the state legislature, and consolidation of inefficient units 
of local governments. Thus far, he has accomplished three 
of these goals. The fourth, consolidation of inefficient 
units of local governments, is in legislation at the present 
time and should become a reality in the near future. 

Mr. George has been a member for eight years of the 
Community Facilities Committee for the National League 
of Cities and for twelve years the Director of the Resolu- 
tion Committee of the National League of Cities. 



Garland F. Pinholster, Dean of Administration, and Edward 
M. Garrett, Dean of the College attended the American 
Association of Higher Education meeting in Chicago, 
Illinois in March. 

Dr. David N. Thomas, Associate Professor in History, has 
put together a program of Urban Studies. This program 
has not yet been approved by the Oglethorpe Faculty 
and Administration but it seems to lend itself to contem- 
porary curriculum changes which are being made in 
colleges all over the country. 

Oglethorpe will again offer a summer workshop for ele- 
mentary teachers and a seminar for secondary teachers. 
The workshop and seminar will run concurrently during 
the first term of summer school (beginning June 9th) and 
they will serve in lieu of the student teaching requirement 
in a planned program designed to provide professional 
certifications. 



Carol George Sellers, daughter and 1963 graduate of 
Oglethorpe is married to Lt. Woody Sellers. Lt. Sellers is 
currently serving in the U.S. Air Force in the Phillipines.
