President Gee then asked Jay Cole about the agenda for the October 26 meeting at Tamarack in Beckley.  Dr. Cole replied that the agenda consisted of a presentation on students advocating for increased higher education funding by Mr. Hunter Barclay, Student Body President at Marshall University, followed by updates from the three subcommittees, a review of the commission’s timeline with particular attention to the December 10 deadline for submitting the commission report and recommendations to the Governor, and adjournment.

 

Mr. Payne reminded the commission that the governance subcommittee would meet at 11 a.m., also at Tamarack, to receive comments from the presidents of the public four-year institutions about HEPC.  Mr. Payne encouraged anyone who wished to provide feedback to the subcommittee to attend the meeting. 

 

President Gee asked if there were any questions or issues from the commission members.  Hearing none, he adjourned the call at 5:11 p.m.
