KeyShawn Housey (Mentor: Dr. Julie de-Chantal)

McNair’s own KeyShawn Housey was a key player in bringing change to Georgia Southern’s Campus. An excerpt from Rachel Adams of The George-Anne elaborates below:

“The diversity and inclusion resolution proposed by a Student Government Association senator was passed Nov. 3”

“KeyShawn Housey, SGA senator-at-large, introduced a proposal to promote and improve discussion regarding diversity and inclusion at the solidarity walk on Oct. 19. Housey later held a listening session on Oct. 22 to discuss and answer questions about the resolution.”

“Housey said in an email that as of Saturday, the resolution was passed by a United States Government Association as university legislation and that all its contents have now been put into effect University-wide.
