Behrend Geoscience professor re
elected member of Erie school board
by Lea Gotch
Collegian Staff Writer
Dr. Eva Tucker, a Behrend
geoscience professor, is also a
recently re-elected member of the
Erie County School Board.
This year will be Tucker's
eighth year serving on the school
board. His first four years were
the result of two two-year
appointed-terms. In 1985, he
was elected for a four year term.
Most recently, on November
7, Tucker won election for
another four year term. He
received 24,000 votes, more than
anyone that ran. His name
Open forum on society changes
by Chris Dyne
Collegian Staff Writer'
An open forum on changes in
'society over the past 25 years,
held in Niagara Hall lobby on
November 28; was attended by a
handful of Behrend students.
Dr. Gamble and Dr. Fowler,
the guest speakers, discussed the
changes in the college student's
life since 1964.
One major change, cited by
Dr. - Fowler, is the lack of unity
shown by college students
towards a common cause.
He explained that when he
was in college the students would
question authority. Now when
the administration lays down a
new rule, students passively
accept it.
The 80's generation is much
more cynical. Few of us bother
to vote, and instead of protesting,
interest groups•- represent our
cause, according to Fowler.
Gamble mentioned the major
accomplishments in the civil
rights movement. Martin Luther
King Jr. may have led the
movement, but it was the
hundreds of thousands of young
blacks that made it all happen,
said Gamble.
The professors agreed that
twenty-five years ago we thought
that we could make the world a
better place by working together,
but today our unity has died as
we just let things happen.

The main purpose of the

that the young people of Erie

education," said Tucker.
The board's responsibilities

teachers and administrators and

how they are prepared," Tucker
said, "This gives me an idea of
how we should strengthen our_
program in Erie."
Since a new superintendent is
now in charge, Tucker thinks
there will be some changes in the
way the school board functions.
"I think we will see less of
different members submitting
different solutions because we
have a very aggressive
administration," said Tucker.
As for future plans, Dr.
Tucker will serve on the school
board as long as he feels he has
something to offer to the students
of Erie.
