>> GOOD EVENING, EVERYONE, THIS IS MONDAY, APRIL 5, 2021.

[00:00:07]

THIS IS THE ATHLETIC, I'M SORRY, THE ALEXANDRIA HALL OF FAME COMMITTEE MEETING.

WE WOULD LIKE TO START AT THIS TIME.

[I. Call to Order]

WE WOULD LIKE TO CALL TO ORDER CORRECTLY.

[II. Adoption of Meeting Agenda]

FIRST ITEM IS ADOPTION OF THE MINUTES.

AND QUESTIONS? HEARING NONE.

I MOVE THAT WE APPROVE THE AGENDA FOR TONIGHT.

ALL IN FAVOR SAY AYE.

>> RAISE YOUR HAND.

>> OR PUT IN THE CHAT.

I SECOND ON THAT.

I WILL SECOND IT.

CALL THE QUESTION.

HEARING NONE.

ALL IN FAVOR RAISE YOUR HAND OR SAY AYE.

>> AYE.

>> AYE.

ALL RIGHT.

THANK YOU.

APPROVAL OF MINUTES FROM LAST MEETING.

SUSAN.

WELL WE DIDN'T QUITE GET THE MINUTES DONE.

I WILL POST THEM FOR THE NEXT MEETING.

[III. Approval of Meeting Minutes]

THANK YOU.

>> OKAY.

ALL RIGHT.

SO WE'LL LOOK AT THOSE MEETING MINUTES FOR NEXT MEETING.

AT OUR NEXT MEETING.

>> I WILL E-MAIL THEM OUT.

COMMUNICATIONS.

DO WE HAVE ANY COMMUNICATION FROM THE COMMUNITY? SUSAN.

ANYONE ONLINE?

>> WE ONLY HAVE OUR CAPTIONER HERE.

SO THAT'S THE ONLY PERSON I SEE.

OR WE HAD A CAPTIONER.

BUT I SEE MICHAEL JOHNSON.

WE JUST HAD MICHAEL JOHNSON BUT HE'S A COMMITTEE MEMBER.

YEAH, I'M HERE.

I'M ON.

>> THANKS.

MIKE.

>> OLD BUSINESS.

AND THESE ARE ACTION ITEMS.

[V.1. Assignment of committee members to screening committees.]

AS WE TALKED LAST TIME WE WERE TRYING TO SET UP A SCREENING COMMITTEE.

WE APPROVED THAT PROCESS AND TONIGHT, THE TASK IS TO HAVE PEOPLE VOLUNTEER FOR COMMITTEE.

THEY CAN BE A PART OF MORE THAN ONE.

ALONG WITH VOLUNTEER FOR COMMITTEE, SOMEONE IN THAT GROUP TO TAKE CHARGE AND BECAUSE THE TIMELINE IS NEXT MONTH AS YOU SEE DOWN AT THE BOTTOM OF THE AGENDA.

WE BE ABLE TO COME FORTH FROM THE COMMITTEE WITH A SET NUMBER OF NOMINEES FOR THE FULL COMMITTEE TO REVIEW AND VOTE ON IT IN OUR SECOND MEETING IN MAY.

OKAY.

AND LOOK AT THE AGENDA.

HAD IT BROKEN DOWN TO THREE CATEGORIES THERE.

THE FIRST ONE IS INDIVIDUAL ATHLETES AND PRE-65.

DO WE HAVE VOLUNTEERS IN THE COMMITTEE MEETING?

>> PRE-65.

I AM HAPPY TO VOLUNTEER AK.

JUST PROBABLY BE THE OLDEST ONE ON HERE, I PROBABLY KNOW MORE ABOUT PRE-65 THAN I OUGHT TO.

IF THAT'S A SIGNIFICANT QUALIFICATION, I AM HAPPY TO.

>> BEING A MEMBER IS JUST GOOD ENOUGH.

WHAT WE TALKED ABOUT DOING IS MAKING SURE WE DON'T HAVE A WHOLE LOT ON THE GROUP TO DO.

BUT DIVIDED UP TO CATEGORIES AND SCREENING COMMITTEE SO THAT YOU AND WHO ELSE ON COMMITTEE, WHO ELSE WOULD LIKE TO BE ON THE COMMITTEE CAN GO THROUGH THE APPLICATIONS AND TO COME UP WITH THE CERTAIN NUMBER.

SO, I'M HERE ONE PERSON.

ANYONE ELSE?

>> PUT ME DOWN, AK FOR WAYNE.

IS THERE A MAXIMUM PER COMMITTEE?

>> NO.

IF PEOPLE WANT TO BE INVOLVED IN THAT, I DON'T SEE A MAXIMUM.

>> THERE'S 15 MEMBERS ON THE COMMITTEE.

I KNOW WE HAVE FEWER TEAM APPLICATIONS AND FEWER COACH CONTRIBUTOR.

[00:05:02]

I DON'T THINK IT HAS TO BE EVEN.

THERE'S FIVE CATEGORIES THERE.

>> I VOLUNTEER FOR THE INDIVIDUAL PRE-1965 COMMITTEE.

LEWIS, DANIELLE AND WAYNE.

WHO WAS THE FORTH PERSON? JIM.

THAT'S PRE-65.

POST '65.

I WOULD LIKE TO BE ON INDIVIDUAL POST '65.

>> KAMILAH LAWSON.

>> I WOULD TOO, COACH.

>> THAT'S ROBERTA.

I AM GOING TO HAVE LAWSON AND ROBERTA.

>> I WAS GOING TO SAY ELLIOT.

>> THE POST '65 IS A BIG NUMBER.

DID TRACEY ROBERSON SAY SOMETHING.

>> I'M SORRY.

I DIDN'T SEE YOU.

>> I WAS JUST ABOUT TO TEXT YOU TRACEY.

>> OKAY.

AK JOHNSON.

ANYONE ELSE? WE'RE TALKING ABOUT MALE AND FEMALE.

>> YOU CAN PUT ON THERE AK.

>> MICHAEL JOHNSON.

DO YOU THINK MR. TROUT WOULD WANT TO BE ON THERE?

>> HE REQUESTED COACH ADMINISTRATOR CONTRIBUTOR.

I WILL CHECK TO SEE IF HE WANTS TO SERVE FOR MORE THAN ONE.

HE'S UNAVAILABLE UNTIL LATER TONIGHT BECAUSE HE'S ON A BOAT.

>> SO YOU SPOKE TO TROUT TOO.

>> I SPOKE TO HIM THIS MORNING.

I WILL MOVE ON TO TEAM NOW.

I CAN COME BACK AND JUMP ON ANOTHER COMMITTEE WILL BE GREAT.

PRE-65 TEAM.

>> I CAN DO THAT ONE TOO.

PRE-65.

>> WHO DO YOU THINK ABOUT HAVING THE PRE-65ERS DO TEAM AND INDIVIDUAL? HAVE ONE COMMITTEE DO THE PRE-65 TEAMS AND ATHLETES.

DOES THAT SUIT ANYBODY?

>> THERE'S REALLY NOT THAT MANY TEAMS TRULY.

COMPARED TO ATHLETES.

I'M GOOD WITH THAT.

WHAT IF WE COMBINE THE PRE-AND POST-65 TEAM.

>> THAT SOUNDS GOOD.

YOU CAN ALWAYS DIVIDE MALE AND FEMALE WITHIN THE GROUP IF IT'S TOO MUCH.

SUSAN, CAN I BE ON THE COME THE?

>> YOU CAN BE ON THE COMMITTEE BUT YOU DON'T HAVE A VOTE.

>> I WOULD PREFER BEING INVOLVED WITH THE PREATHLETE AND PRE-TEAM COMBINATION.

>> OKAY.

LOUIS.

LEWIS.

OKAY.

SO ARE WE DOING PRE-65 INDIVIDUAL AND TEAM OR PRE-AND POST TOGETHER?

>> PRE-65 AND POST-65 ARE GROUPED, GO BACK.

I'M SORRY.

WHAT WAS YOUR QUESTION? WHAT I SUGGESTED WE DO, PRE-65 COMMITTEE AND TWO DIFFERENT CATEGORIES.

>> I WILL DO THAT.

AM >> I WOULD LIKE TO -- OKAY.

WELL, AGAIN, AK IS THERE.

ANY DISCUSSION ON THE POSSIBILITY OF HAVING ONE COMMITTEE DO RE-65 ATHLETE AS WELL AS PRE-65 TEAM? I UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU PROPOSE, I JUST WONDERED THAT WOULDN'T BE MY PREFERENCE AS A COMMITTEE MEMBER.

I DON'T KNOW HOW OTHERS DANIELLE -- >> IT WOULD BE MY PREFERENCE TOO.

>> MARK, WHAT DID YOU SAY? JIM?

>> AH.

YOU'RE MUTED JIM.

JIM, YOU'RE MUTED.

>> OKAY.

NOW I'M OKAY?

>> YEAH.

YES.

I WOULD LIKE TO DO THE PRE-65 ATHLETE AND THE TEAM.

>> THAT'S MARK.

>> YEAH.

NO.

ME.

THAT WAS JIM.

>> YEAH.

>> JIM.

I'M SORRY.

JIM.

WORDEN.

HOW DO YOU FEEL JIM CLARK?

>> IT JUST SORT OF MAKES SENSE TO ME TO DO PRE-65 TEAM AND ATHLETE TOGETHER BECAUSE YOU'RE NOT HAVING TO REPLOW THE SAME GROUNDS AND A LOT OF ATHLETES ARE OBVIOUSLY ON THE TEAM.

WHATEVER Y'ALL WANT TO DO IS FINE.

I'M GOOD WITH WHATEVER THE COMMITTEE WANTS TO DO.

IF YOU WANT TO JUST DO ALL THE PRE-65S IN ONE GROUP, MAKES SENSE TO ME.

WHATEVER THE MAJORITY WANTS IS GOOD WITH ME.

>> I AGREE, I'M HAPPY TO DO WHATEVER.

IT SOUNDS LIKE MORE PEOPLE WOULD PREFER TO KEEP IT SEPARATE.

I'M HAPPY TO HELP HOWEVER.

IF ANYONE FEELS STRONGLY ABOUT IT.

[00:10:01]

THAT'S FINE.

>> OKAY.

JUST SO I'M CLEAR MR. JOHNSON, AND I CAN READ BACK THE NAMES, DOES THE ENTIRE GROUP THAT SIGNED UP FOR INDIVIDUAL ATHLETE PRE-65 WHICH WAS JIM CLARK, DANIELLE THORNE.

WAYNE SANDERS, JIM WORDEN, DO THEY ALSO WANT TO ATTACH THEMSELVES TO THE TEAM PRE-65 WHICH HAS MARK EISENHOWER AND ANNIKA AS THE EXTRAS? CAN I COMBINE THE TWO? IS THAT OKAY WITH EVERYBODY?

>> YES.

YES.

YEAH.

>> OKAY.

ALL RIGHT.

LET'S COMBINE.

CAN I SAY WITH THE TEAMS, I PREFER DOING TEAMS. I WANT TO DO PRE-AND POST AND WANT TO DO TEAMS AND NO INDIVIDUAL?

>> THAT WORKS, WE JUST NEED, PROBABLY NEED A FEW MORE FOLKS FOR THE POST '65 TEAMS THAT'S ALL.

OTHER THAN JUST THE TWO OF US.

>> OKAY.

I'M CONFUSED NOW.

I THOUGHT WE WERE GOING TO DO THE TEAM, THE COMMITTEE WOULD DO POST AND PRE.

WITH THAT COMMITTEE.

IS THAT NOT WHAT WE JUST TALKED ABOUT?

>> YES.

>> OKAY.

I THOUGHT WE TALKED ABOUT PRE-AND PRE FOR INDIVIDUAL AND TEAM.

>> YEAH.

GO AHEAD DANIELLE.

>> SORRY, YEAH I THINK IT SOUNDS LIKE MORE PEOPLE WANTED TO DO IT SEPARATELY.

SOME PEOPLE WANT TO BE IN BOTH PRE-65 CATEGORIES CAN DON'T WANT TO THE BOTH PRE AND POST.

ANNIKA AND MARK WANT TO DO THE MOST 65 AND THEY'RE TRYING TO FIND OTHER FOLKS TO DO IT WITH THEM IS WHAT WAS SAID.

>> OKAY.

ANYONE ELSE ANY THOUGHTS ON THAT PROCESS? ALL RIGHT.

SO, WHAT I'M HEARING IS THAT KAMILAH, PEOPLE WANT TO BASED ON WHAT YOU READ OFF, THEY WANTED TO DO PRE-AND POST INDIVIDUAL.

JIM CLARK, DANIELLE THORNE, AND MARK.

>> ANNIKA AND MARK EISENHOWER ARE DOING POST-65 PRE AND TEAM, IS THAT CORRECT? WAYNE SANDERS IS ALSO ON PRE-65 TEAM.

>> THAT'S CORRECT FOR ME.

>> OKAY.

SO BASICALLY I MOVED EVERYBODY WHO WAS UNDER ON PRE-65 INDIVIDUAL ATHLETE DOWN TO TEAM AND THEN I ADDED ANNIKA TO TEAM PRE-65 AND MARK AND THEN THEY ARE SO FAR THE ONLY TWO ON POST 65 FOR TEAM.

>> OKAY.

ANYONE ELSE ON POST 65 FOR TEAM?

>> I WOULD LIKE -- I WOULD LIKE TO BE ON THE POST-65 FOR TEAM.

BUT ARE WE, OKAY.

BUT IT I DON'T MIND IF I'M ON POST 65 OR INDIVIDUAL AS WELL.

>> CORRECT.

RIGHT.

OKAY.

THAT IS OKAY.

YEP.

I GOT YOU ADDED.

>> ANYONE ELSE GETTING CONFUSED BY THIS? I THINK WHAT MIGHT MAKE MORE SENSE BECAUSE I'M GETTING CONFUSED IS IF WE JUST GO THROUGH AND SAY, PRE-1965 HERE IS WHO IS ON IT AND POST, AND FIGURE OUT IF THE SAME GROUP IS ON BOTH, YOU CAN MUSH THEM TOGETHER.

BUT, I DON'T THINK WE HAVE THE SAME PEOPLE ON BOTH LIKE SOMEONE IS DOING JUST TEAM BUT NOT PRE-ATHLETE.

>> THAT'S WHAT MISS LAWSON DID.

>> YEAH, I'M GOING TO PUT THAT MUCH IN THE CHAT RIGHT NOW SO Y'ALL CAN SEE IT.

>> OKAY.

ACTUALLY THERE IS NO CHAT IN OUR MEETING.

SORRY.

>> DARN.

I CAN SHARE MY SCREEN IF YOU WANT.

>> YES, YOU MAY.

GO RIGHT AHEAD.

WE'RE NOT ALLOWED TO DO CHAT.

THIS IS WHAT I HAVE SO FAR.

LET ME KNOW IF THAT IS CORRECT.

ANNIKA AND MARK EISENHOWER WILL WORK ON BOTH SECTIONS OF TEAM.

THEY WILL SPLIT THEIR DUTIES.

BUT THE PRE-65 FOR THE INDIVIDUAL ATHLETE MOST OF THEM ARE GOING TO BE ON PRE-65 FOR TEAM AS WELL.

>> OKAY.

OKAY.

THAT LOOKS BETTER.

I CAN MAKE SENSE OF THAT.

>> OKAY.

ALL RIGHT.

GREAT, THANKS KAMILAH.

>> NO PROBLEM.

THE THIRD CATEGORY WOULD BE COACH ADMINISTRATOR, CONTRIBUTOR.

>> BOB TROUT WANTS TO BE ON THAT ONE.

>> AND I, I COULD BE ON THAT ONE AS WELL IF YOU CAN.

>> IS THAT ANNIKA?

>> TRACEY ROBERSON.

>> AND I'LL DO THE PRE-65 AS WELL IF THAT'S NOT FILLED.

>> WHAT MIKE FOR TEAM OR FOR INDIVIDUAL?

[00:17:12]

>> INDIVIDUAL.

>> YEAH.

I THOUGHT HE WAS ALREADY ON THE INDIVIDUAL FOR POST 65.

>> OKAY.

OKAY.

THEN NO.

IS THAT RIGHT?

>> YEAH.

THAT'S WHAT I WANTED.

>> MIKE I HAVE YOU FOR POST 65, INDIVIDUAL, DID YOU WANT TO BE ON INDIVIDUAL PRE-65 AS WELL?

>> SURE.

>> SURE.

OKAY.

>> GET IT STRAIGHT, RAY.

>> THANK YOU.

MISS GREENY.

>> OKAY.

AGAIN ANYONE ELSE, COACH'S ADMINISTRATIVE.

>> THIS IS JIM CLARK.

IF YOU NEED SOMEBODY, I'M HAPPY TO DO IT.

>> OKAY.

I WILL ADD YOU.

>> THANK YOU.

>> MR. WIEDEMER.

>> HE MUST BE -- >> YEAH, SORRY FOLKS.

I'M CUTTING IN AND OUT A LITTLE BIT.

CAN YOU HEAR ME?

>> YES.

DID YOU HAVE A COMMITTEE YOU WANTED TO BE ON OR MORE THAN ONE COMMITTEE?

>> I AM, I AM HAPPY TO BE ON ANY COMMITTEE THERE'S SPACE LEFT FOR.

I'M PERFECTLY HAPPY TO BE ON ANY OF THEM.

I DIDN'T HAVE ENOUGH PREFERENCE TO PUT MYSELF OUT THERE.

I'M HAPPY TO BE ON WHATEVER YOU NEED HELP WITH.

>> WHERE DO YOU ALL HAVE THE BIGGEST NEED? SLOT ME IN AND TELL ME WHERE TO GO.

>> HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE FOR POST 65 INDIVIDUAL? THAT'S A BIG CATEGORY.

>> I WILL TAKE THAT AND IF YOU NEED HELP SOMEWHERE ELSE, I'M HAPPY TO JOIN THAT TOO.

>> WE HAVE FIVE PEOPLE RIGHT NOW.

>> WHAT ABOUT THE CONTRIBUTORS.

>> THAT'S PART OF THE COACH'S ADMINISTRATOR.

>> RIGHT, UH-HUH.

TROUT, TRACEY AND JIM CLARK RIGHT NOW.

MR. WIEDEMER, DO YOU WANT TO DO COACH'S ADMIN AS WELL.

[00:20:10]

>> I WILL IF YOU NEED ME.

>> AND ALSO KEEP IN MIND THAT WE HAVE A NEW MEMBER WHO WILL BE JOINING US AFTER THE EIGHTH, ALTHOUGH, I'M NOT SURE IF HE WILL JOIN THIS MEETING TONIGHT OR NOT.

I REACHED OUT TO HIM.

WE WILL SEE WHAT HAPPENS.

WE DO HAVE ANOTHER MEMBER JOINING OUR COMMITTEE AS OF THURSDAY.

>> OKAY.

SO, WHAT IS HIS NAME, SUSAN? DAVID MERCER.

>> IS HE RELATED TO CLARK MERCER? SOMEONE WE INDUCTED?

>> AND ALSO KELLY MERCER.

YEAH.

SHEESH.

WHAT A FAN.

>> ACTUALLY, HE IS THE FATHER OF BOTH OF THEM WITH A VERY ACCOMPLISHED RUNNING BACK AT HAMMOND BACK IN THE EARLY 60S?

>> HE WAS?

>> HE WAS.

>> SO CAN WE GET HIM NOMINATED BECAUSE WE HAVE NO HAMMOND ATHLETES? HE WASN'T THAT GOOD AND I'LL TELL HIM TO HIS FACE.

>> HE WILL.

HE WAS BORN HERE AND WILL BE A GREAT RESOURCE.

>> AWESOME.

>> WONDERFUL, I LIKE MR. MERCER.

>> ME TOO.

>> OKAY.

COULD I BE ADDED TO THE TEAM.

>> FOR THE POST?

>> YEAH.

POST 65.

>> OKAY.

LEAVE OUT THE PERIODS.

IT'S SO MUCH EASIER.

>> LOOK, IT'S MY FIRST DAY ON THE JOB Y'ALL.

GIVE ME A BREAK.

>> YOU'RE DOING GREAT ACTUALLY.

>> I WOULD LIKE TO BE ADDED.

THIS IS ROBERTA TO THE COACHES AND ADMIN.

>> BY THE WAY, WE DIDN'T FORMALLY INTRODUCE ROBERTA AS ONE OF OUR NEWEST MEMBERS AND ALSO ONE OF OUR NEWEST MEMBERS OF THE ATHLETIC HALL OF FAME.

WELCOME.

>> THANK YOU.

>> WELCOME ROBERTA.

>> THANK YOU.

>> I REALLY WANT YOU TO REMEMBER ME ROBERTA BUT I DON'T THINK YOU DO.

>> WHY DON'T I?

>> WHY NOT?

>> YOUR MOM WAS THERE AT EVERY PRACTICE WATCHING THE CHEER LEADERS.

>> OKAY.

WE CAN CARRY ON.

>> OKAY.

THE NEXT ORDER IN THAT GROUP IS TO FIND A LEADER IN THE GROUP.

SOMEONE TO TAKE CHARGE AND MAKE SURE THERE'S COMMUNICATION BETWEEN THE COMMITTEE MEMBERS.

GET TO KAMILAH LEAVE THAT LIST UP.

>> I CAN DO LEAD FOR INDIVIDUAL PRE-65.

>> OKAY.

>> DANIELLE.

>> POST-65.

>> I CAN DO IT.

>> IS THAT KAMILAH? TEAM.

PRE-65.

>> DANIELLE, CAN YOU BE THE LEADER ON THAT TOO?

>> YEAH.

>> THAT'S FINE.

POST '65.

>> I WILL DO POST.

MARK.

>> OKAY.

AND COACHES AND ADMINISTRATOR AND CONTRIBUTOR.

>> MR. WIEDEMER, YOU WANT TO TAKE THAT?

>> NO.

I CAN'T.

I WILL DO IT IF NOBODY ELSE WANTS TO.

I'M JIM CLARK.

>> THANKS JIM.

AWESOME.

>> OKAY.

AND AGAIN, THAT IS MAKE A CONTACT, MAKE SURE THERE'S COMMUNICATION.

MAKE SURE EVERYONE READS THE GUIDELINES, CRITERIA FOR SELECTION AND YOU WILL COME BACK TO THE GROUP ON MAY THIRD.

AND HERE'S THE FINALISTS.

NUMBERS.

IN THE PRE-65, THE FINALISTS NUMBER SHOULD BE FIVE.

IN THE POST '65, THE FINALISTS NUMBERS SHOULD BE 10.

[00:25:07]

AND THE PRE-65 FOR TEAM SHOULD BE THREE.

AND THE SAME FOR POST.

JUST THREE.

AND THE CONTRIBUTORS SHOULD BE THREE ALSO.

SO THOSE ARE THE NUMBERS YOU BRING BACK TO THE COMMITTEE AND PRESENT IN COMMITTEE AND THEN THE WHOLE COMMITTEE AT THAT POINT WE WILL GO THROUGH THEM AND BE ABLE TO MAKE A FINAL VOTE ON THE FOLLOWING MEETING.

IN MAY.

I THINK I HAD THE WRONG DATE HERE.

THAT'S THE SECOND MEETING IN MAY.

SUSAN, I DON'T HAVE MY CALENDAR.

>> HOLD ON.

SORRY, I WILL HAVE TO LOOK.

>> 24TH OF MAY.

>> 24TH.

>> OKAY.

SORRY, JUST TO CLARIFY ONE THING, AK.

WHEN WE'RE TRYING TO FIGURE OUT THESE FIVE PEOPLE FOR LIKE PRE-65, ARE WE ALLOWED TO MEET OR IS THAT AGAINST THE RULES BECAUSE THERE'S SO MANY OF US IT WOULD HAVE TO BE RECORDED OR SOMETHING.

I WANTED TO CLARIFY IF THERE'S ANY RULES.

SOME OF THESE SUB COMMITTEES HAVE BIGGER NUMBERS.

IT'S OKAY IF WE'RE E-MAILING AND STUFF.

>> SO, HERE'S WHAT I WOULD SUGGEST.

SO, IT'S SO HARD WITH SUB COMMITTEES.

SO WE ARE BOUND BY FOIA EVEN AS A SUB COMMITTEE TO HAVE DEPENDING ON HOW MANY ARE IN YOUR SUB COMMITTEE.

IF YOU HAVE THREE OR TWO, THEN TWO IS A MEETING.

BUT, IN LARGER GROUPS, TWO IS LARGER THAN TWO IS A MEETING.

SO THREE OR MORE IS A MEETING.

AND WOULD HAVE TO BE RECORDED AND -- SO, SOME OF THE COMMITTEES SUB COMMITTEES WHAT THEY HAVE DONE IS WE HAVE GOT THESE GOOGLE DOCS FOR YOU ALL TO USE, AND YOU CAN USE THOSE GOOGLE DOCS AND ACTUALLY GO INTO THE GOOGLE DOCS BUT YOU CAN'T BE IN ALL AT THE SAME TIME.

THAT'S THE ONLY THING.

SO ONE OF THE THINGS THEY'RE DOING AS A SUB COMMITTEE, I KNOW THIS DOESN'T WORK REALISTICALLY, IN THAT, IT'S HARD TO DISCUSS THIS KIND OF STUFF IN PUBLIC.

SO -- >> IS THERE A REASON WHY ONLY ONE PERSON CAN ACCESS AT A TIME?

>> BECAUSE WHEN THERE'S MORE THAN, WELL TWO COULD ACCESS AT A TIME IF YOUR COMMITTEE IS GREATER THREE.

YOUR SUB COMMITTEE IS GREATER THAN THREE.

YOU CREATE A MEETING WHEN YOU'RE IN THERE ALL LIKE EDITING AND DISCUSSING AT ONCE.

IT'S REALLY HARD.

SO -- >> SO -- >> IF YOU HAVE A SMALL GROUP, AND YOU'RE SAY YOU WERE ALL TEACHERS AT TC WILLIAMS, YOU COULD HAVE A MEETING.

BUT WE DO HAVE TO PUBLICIZE THE MEETING AND WE WOULD HAVE TO PUBLICIZE YOU KNOW THE AGENDA OF THE MEETING.

BUT, WE'LL HAVE TO TALK ABOUT THIS OFFLINE MAYBE BECAUSE I'M NOT SURE WHAT THE ANSWER IS TO THAT.

I KNOW THIS IS A LITTLE DIFFERENT BEAST THAN SOME OF THE OTHERS.

ALTHOUGH IF A PUBLIC PERSON CAME TO OUR MEETING, THEY WOULD BE ALLOWED TO HEAR THE DISCUSSION AS WELL.

>> MY QUESTION IS, IN WHAT WAY ARE WE SUPPOSED TO COMMUNICATE? CAN I SEND AN E-MAIL TO EVERYBODY ON THE TEAM AND SAY SEND ME YOUR TOP FIVE AND TALK ABOUT THEM THROUGH E-MAIL IS THAT SUFFICIENT? OR DO WE NEED TO HAVE A ZOOM CALL IS MY QUESTION?

>> I THINK WHAT YOU SHOULD DO IS YOU COULD, YOU CAN'T DO IT BY E-MAIL.

YOU CAN, LIKE USE AS THE LEAD CAN SEND OUT TO SOMETHING ON THE GROUP AND NO ONE SHOULD RESPOND ALL.

SOMEONE COULD RESPOND DIRECTLY TO YOU.

BUT THEY CAN'T RESPOND TO THE GROUP BECAUSE THAT AGAIN CREATES A MEETING.

LIKE FOIA IS A NIGHTMARE AND REALLY PUTS A LOT OF RESTRICTIONS ON US AS A POLITICAL BODY.

I SUGGEST YOU GO FIRST ALL OF YOUR GROUP STUFF AND THEN WHOEVER IS THE LEAD REACH OUT TO EVERYONE AND SAY PLEASE SEND ME YOUR TOP, YOU PROBABLY WANT MORE THAN FIVE IF FIVE IS YOUR GROUP.

IF YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO PICK FIVE.

I WANT EVERYONE TO SEND MORE THAN YOUR TOP FIVE.

BECAUSE IF YOU ONLY HAVE -- GEEZ.

SORRY.

YOU WON'T GET, NOT EVERYONE WILL PICK THE SAME FIVE.

YOU PROBABLY WANT MORE THAN FIVE.

YOU MAY HAVE YOUR TOP 5 JUST RAISED TO THE TOP AND MAYBE YOU HAVE YOUR TOP FIVE.

[00:30:01]

BUT, ONCE YOU GET TO THAT POINT WHERE PEOPLE HAVE SENT YOU STUFF, THERE'S GOING TO HAVE TO BE A WAY TO DISCUSS IT.

I'M NOT SURE HOW THAT'S GOING TO LOOK FOR THE ATHLETIC HALL OF FAME.

HOW YOU'RE GOING TO DISCUSS IT UNLESS YOU ASSIGN I MEAN BECAUSE I THINK, I DON'T KNOW.

ARE YOU COMFORTABLE WITH DISCUSSING THEM ALL IN PUBLIC?

>> WELL, I GUESS IT SOUNDS LIKE IT'S JUST ANOTHER MEETING.

I THINK IT'S FINE IN MY MIND.

I SAY SEND ME YOUR PEOPLE.

WHATEVER THE LIST IS, I SEND IT BACK TO EVERYONE AND THEY CAN SEND TO ME WHOEVER THE TOP FIVE WAS.

HOWEVER THAT SHOOK OUT IS WHAT WOULD SEEM TO ME WHAT WORKS BEST.

>> YOU JUST CAN'T ALL REPLY ALL.

>> I WILL BCC EVERYONE SO THEY CAN ONLY REPLY TO ME.

>> BECAUSE THAT'S WHERE IT CREATES A PROBLEM.

YEAH.

AND YOU CAN GO INTO THE GOOGLE DOCS, BUT ALL OF YOU ONLY HAVE VIEW.

VIEW.

VIEW OPTIONS.

BUT YOU CAN DOWNLOAD THE DOCUMENTS TO YOUR OWN THING AND EDIT OR DO WHATEVER YOU WANT IN YOUR OWN DOCUMENTS.

THEY ARE ALL PDF.

YOU CAN'T EDIT, EDIT.

SO, WHAT WE, THE GUIDANCE WE GOT FROM THE FOYA COMMITTEE, IF YOU WANT TO USE A GOOGLE DOC, YOU WOULD HAVE TO HOUSE IT ON OUR, ON THE ATHLETIC HALL OF FAME GOOGLE DRIVE.

BUT IT COULD BE SHARED WITH YOUR SUB COMMITTEE.

AND THEN ALL OF YOU WANTED TO GO IN AND LEAVE COMMENTS YOU JUST HAVE TO DO IT SEPARATELY.

YOU CAN'T ALL FIVE OF YOU BE IN THERE AT ONCE PUTTING COMMENTS IN.

THAT'S NOT ALLOWED.

YOU HAVE TO JUST ARRANGE THAT YOU'RE GOING TO USE AT 2 O'CLOCK ON FRIDAY AND JIM IS GOING TO USE IT AT 3 O'CLOCK AND ROBERTA WOULD USE AT 4 O'CLOCK AND MAKE SURE YOU'RE NOT IN THERE WHEN SOMEONE ELSE IS IN THERE.

YOU COULD, WE COULD DO THAT CREATE A SUB COMMITTEE FOR EACH OF THESE AND THEN PUT THEM IN THERE ALLOW YOU TO HAVE YOU KNOW VIEW, EDIT AND PUT NOTES IN THERE.

SOMEONE ELSE GOING IN THERE AFTER YOU CAN SEE THE NOTES.

THE NOTES ARE ALL THERE AND DOCUMENTED.

IT'S NOT THE SAME AS JUST TRYING TO TALK ON THE PHONE AT ONCE.

BECAUSE THAT'S NOT, THAT'S NOW TRANSPARENT ENOUGH.

>> SUSAN.

I'M SORRY.

I AM SO CONFUSED.

IF THEY CAN SEE WHO IS, IN A GOOGLE DOC, YOU CAN SEE WHO EDITS.

SO, HOW DOES THE GROUP -- >> SO WHEN YOU'RE A POLITICAL ORGANIZATION, YOU CANNOT HAVE A MEETING WITHOUT YOU FOLLOWING THESE FOIA RULES.

THE FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT.

IF ANYONE WANTED TO SEE THE WORK WE'RE DOING, WE WOULD HAVE TO PROVIDE IT.

AS SOON AS YOU HAVE MORE THAN THREE PEOPLE IN SOMETHING, IT'S A MEETING.

OR THREE OR MORE PEOPLE UNLESS YOU HAVE A REALLY SMALL COMMITTEE IT WOULD BE TWO.

BUT WHEN THAT HAPPENS, IT HAS TO BE TRANSPARENT TO THE PUBLIC WHAT WAS DONE AND SO PART OF, YOU CAN'T, LIKE TWO OF YOU COULD GO IN AT ONCE BUT NOT THREE.

YOU COULD SCHEDULE FOR TWO OF YOU TO BE IN THERE.

IF YOUR COMMITTEE IS MORE THAN THREE PEOPLE.

YOUR SUB COMMITTEE IS MORE THAN THREE PEOPLE.

AM I CONFUSING EVERYONE?

>> I TRUST THAT'S THE CASE, IT JUST DOESN'T MAKE A TON OF SENSE.

>> IT DOES IF -- >> IT JUST SOUNDS LIKE AN ISSUE OF WHAT THEY INTERPRETED IT TO MEAN.

IT'S AN ISSUE FOR A POLITICAL BODY.

AS MEMBERS OF A BODY THAT ANSWERS TO THE LIKE YOUR ACTUALLY ACTING AS AGENTS OF THE SCHOOL BOARD.

YOU GUYS ARE SUBJECT TO THE RULES IN THIS COMMITTEE.

DOES THAT MAKE SENSE? I KNOW IT'S A PAIN.

BELIEVE ME I KNOW.

>> SO, I THINK THE BEST THING IS FOR EACH LEADER OF EACH COMMITTEE TO SET TIMES FOR EVERYONE TO TURN IN YOUR HOW MANY NAMES AND ALSO SET TIMES SO YOU CAN GO IN AND MAKE COMMENTS IN GOOGLE DOCS, IS WHAT I UNDERSTAND.

[00:35:05]

>> GIVE EACH ONE AN INDIVIDUAL TIME TO DO THAT.

THEY CAN COME UP WITH A SYSTEM THAT WE USE IN THE PAST WHERE WE WRITE THEM, ONE THROUGH WHATEVER TO GET TO YOUR FIVE OR 10 OR THREE.

OKAY.

>> OKAY.

DO WE ALL AGREE, UNDERSTAND? I KNOW THERE'S DIFFICULT BUT, NOT BEING ABLE TO GET TOGETHER AT THIS TIME, IT MAKES IT AGAIN, JUST A CHALLENGE IN ITSELF.

>> SO, KAMILAH, AT THE END OF THE MEETING, IF YOU COULD SEND ME THE LIST, I WILL CREATE FOLDERS YOU CAN ACCESS AS PART OF THE SUB COMMITTEES AND THE LEADERS CAN PUT THEIR DOCUMENTS IN THERE AND YOU CAN COMMENT O THIS.

IT HAS TO REMAIN IN THERE.

ANY QUESTIONS?

>> OKAY.

[V.2. Discussion on plans for 2021 induction ceremony (2020 and 2021 Inductee)]

THE NEXT THING ON THE AGENDA WAS TO HAVE A DISCUSSION ABOUT THE CEREMONY FOR THIS COMING YEAR.

FALL OF 2021.

AS YOU KNOW, WE'RE GOING TO DO TWO CLASSES.

'20 AND '21 CLASS TOGETHER.

TALK TO MR. PARKER AND DOES NOT HAVE A FOOTBALL SCHEDULE AT THAT TIME TO PRESENT TO US.

THEY ARE WORKING ON THAT TO TRY TO FIND OUT WHEN THE HOME COMING WILL BE.

SO IN THE PAST WE HAVE DONE IT THE NIGHT BEFORE THE HOME COMING GAME.

I THINK THEY'RE GOING TO HAVE HOME COMING WITH LIGHTS AT THE STADIUM AND TALK ABOUT FRIDAY NIGHT.

ANY DISCUSSIONS? IDEAS?

>> WELL, ONE THING THAT HAD BEEN SORT OF MENTIONED BEFORE WAS ABOUT DOING THE 71 TITANS SEPARATE JUST TO AND PERHAPS DOING IT WITH THE OPENING OF THE FOOTBALL STADIUM.

BUT I DON'T KNOW IF IT WOULD MAKE SENSE TO DO, I DON'T KNOW.

I DON'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THE OPENING OF THE STADIUM SO MARK EISENHOWER, YOU NEED TO CHIME IN HERE.

>> WE DON'T KNOW THE DETAILS YET.

BETWEEN THE STADIUM AND THE NEW SCHOOL NAME, YOU KNOW THERE MIGHT BE SOME EVENTS AROUND THE FIRST COUPLE HOME GAMES.

BUT WE'RE NOWHERE NEAR THAT ON THE PLANNING.

WE'RE STILL TRYING TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO DO GRADUATION.

BUT I THINK IT'S GOING TO BE, I THINK THERE'S GOING TO BE A LOT OF THINGS GOING ON THOSE FIRST COUPLE GAMES WITH THE NEW STADIUM AND THE NEW SCHOOL NAME AND THEN YOU KNOW, WE HAVE TO DECIDE, DO WE WANT TO ALSO TRY TO DO SOMETHING WITH BOTH CLASSES FOR THE '71 TEAM SEPARATELY OR DIVIDE BETWEEN TWO DIFFERENT GAMES? I DON'T KNOW.

YOU KNOW.

I'M NOT SURE.

>> I DON'T KNOW EITHER.

>> WAYNE, WAYNE.

WHAT DO YOU THINK THE NUMBERS WOULD BE FOR '71 TEAM?

>> AH, I'M HOPING ANYWHERE AROUND 30 TO 40 PEOPLE.

HOPEFULLY.

>> OKAY.

>> AND WAYNE, HAVE YOU ALREADY STARTED TALKING TO THEM ABOUT THAT?

>> SOME OF THEM I HAVE.

I HAVEN'T DONE A WORLDWIDE BUT A TEAM WIDE DISTRIBUTION ON THAT YET.

I MEAN -- >> DO YOU HAVE AN ESTIMATE OF HOW MANY LIVE IN VIRGINIA?

>> GOOD QUESTION.

>> SO, A LOT OF THE ONES WHO HAVE BEEN SENDING IN ADDRESSES THROUGH WAYNE'S E-MAILS AND MY E-MAILS THERE'S A LOT IN VIRGINIA.

THERE'S A LOT IN ALEXANDRIA STILL.

>> PERFECT.

OKAY.

GOOD.

YOU I WAS SURPRISED.

I DIDN'T KNOW ALL THESE PEOPLE WERE '71 TITANS.

>> MY CONCERN IF WE DO THEM SEPARATELY.

IF WE JUST DO THE '71 TEAM, WE'RE GOING TO SET OURSELVES UP.

>> AND THE ONLY CONCERN WE HAD LIKE WHEN WE DID THE 1957, WE HAD 250 ATTENDEES FOR A NINE-PERSON TEAM I THINK.

SO, AND THE '71 TITANS.

I'M NOT SAYING IT CAN'T BE DONE AND I'M NOT THE DECIDER ON THIS.

THE SCHOOL BOARD DOES HAVE TO PUT THIS EVENT ON AND THAT'S WHERE IT BECOMES DIFFICULT.

SO WHEN YOU START TALKING ABOUT THE '71 TITANS.

MY ONLY CONCERN WOULD BE THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE WHO WANT TO COME TO THAT EVENT.

SO IF IDEALLY, WITH EVEN BOTH EVENTS, IF WE WERE TO DO SOMETHING FOR THE '71

[00:40:07]

TITANS FOR LIKE WITH PART OF THE NEW FOOTBALL STADIUM, THAT'S PLENTY OF ROOM FOR LOTS OF PEOPLE.

IF WE'RE HAVING TO KEEP A THREE TO SIX FOOT DISTANCE, THAT'S STILL YOU KNOW,

GOING TO LIMIT PEOPLE BECAUSE -- >> MY IDEA IS, I WOULDN'T DO IT THE SAME NIGHT.

I'M AN ATHLETIC INTERN AND I'M ON THE PLANNING COMMITTEE FOR THE OPENING NIGHT OF THE NEW FIELD AND WE HAVE A LOT WE'RE PLANNING ON DOING.

I KNOW AS LIKE A STUDENT I KNOW A LOT OF KIDS ARE GOING TO THE OPENING OF THE FIELD.

I KNOW PEOPLE ARE TRYING TO SEE THE FIELD NOW BECAUSE EVERYONE IS EAGER TO SEE IT.

I WOULDN'T DO IT THE SAME NIGHT BECAUSE THERE WOULD BE SO MANY PARENTS AND KIDS.

>> I THINK THAT WOULD BE LIKE NOT A GREAT TIME TO DO IT.

BUT, HAVING THE NEW FIELD MIGHT MAKE IT A GREAT WAY TO HAVE IT THERE BUT IN THE PAST WE HAVE DONE IT IN THE GYM.

WE HAVEN'T USED THE WHOLE GYM.

I DON'T KNOW WHERE WE WILL BE -- >> SUSAN.

I THINK WE'RE TALKING ABOUT TWO DIFFERENT THINGS THOUGH.

THE CEREMONY IS PROBABLY, THEY ARE RECOGNIZED AT THE GAME BUT THERE WOULD BE PROBABLY A SEPARATE ACTUAL CEREMONY.

THERE'S NOT ENOUGH TIME.

THERE'S ONLY 15 MINUTES FOR HALF-TIME AND THE BAND.

IT WOULD BE A QUICK RECOGNITION AT A QUARTER BREAK OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT.

BUT WE WOULD STILL HAVE A BIG EVENT PROBABLY IN THE MAIN GYM FOR THE ACTUAL INDUCTION.

>> OKAY.

GOT IT.

>> I HAVE A SUGGESTION.

MY SUGGESTION THAT WE START WITH HOME COMING, AND KEEP THE HOME COMING WEEKEND.

WHY NOT HAVE IT ON THURSDAY PRIOR TO THE HOME COMING GAME ON THE THURSDAY AFTERNOON.

WON'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT THE KIDS SITTING UP FOR THE HOME COMING DANCE.

STILL HAVE TIME TO DO THAT.

BRING THEM IN.

INTRODUCE THEM.

HAVE THE CEREMONY.

USE THE WHOLE GYM.

WHATEVER DISTANCE IS REQUIRED AT THAT TIME.

WE MAY ABSOLUTELY HOW MANY PEOPLE THEY CAN BRING WITH THEM.

THAT'S SOMETHING WE MAY HAVE TO ALSO VIDEOTAPE IT AND PUT IT IN DIFFERENT SATELLITE AREAS.

>> RIGHT.

>> HOLD ON.

I DON'T MEAN TO INTERRUPT.

THAT MIGHT BE A LITTLE DIFFICULT FOR MISS ROBERTA ELLIOT.

SHE'S GOT HALF OF ALEXANDRIA COMING WITH HER.

>> I JUST WANT TO THROW OUT, WE HAVE HAD TO BE CAREFUL ABOUT WHICH NIGHT WE PICK

BECAUSE SOMETIMES THERE'S OTHER SPORTS THERE THAT WE HAVE TO -- >> I WAS GOING TO SAY, I COACH VOLLEYBALL.

>> VOLLEYBALL ON -- AND ALSO -- THAT WOULDN'T BE ABLE TO BE MOVED.

>> AND I'M JUST SAYING THE SCHOOL BOARD MEETINGS ARE ON THURSDAY.

NOT EVERY THURSDAY.

YOU HAVE TO PICK THE RIGHT THURSDAY IF YOU'RE DOING THURSDAY.

>> WELL, THE OTHER OPTION IS DOING IT ON SATURDAY.

MIDDAY AFTERNOON AFTER THE HOME COMING GAME.

IT COULD BE LIMITED OF SPACE BECAUSE THE HOME COMING DANCE IS SATURDAY NIGHT.

>> WELL, IN THE PAST WE HAVE HAD THE ABILITY TO PUT IT ON THE CALENDAR EARLY.

BUT, I DON'T KNOW WHAT IS HAPPENING WITH THE CALENDAR BECAUSE I DON'T KNOW WHO IS DOING THE -- I KNOW WHO IS DOING IT.

>> THE HOME COMING GAME WILL BE AFTER THE DANCE.

>> I HELP WITH THE SENIOR CLASS STUFF AND THEY SET UP IN THE MORNING FOR THE DANCE.

I DON'T IMAGINE IT COULD BE USED FOR TWO EVENTS THAT QUICKLY IN ONE DAY I DON'T THINK.

>> I THINK THAT'S WHY IT'S IMPORTANT FOR US TO HAVE THE DISCUSSION.

WE MAY NOT HAVE A SCHEDULE.

AS A FORMER ATHLETIC DIRECTOR AND MOVING THAT ONE GAME ON A THURSDAY NIGHT AND I KNOW WE CAN'T MOVE THE SCHOOL BOARD MEETING AND WE DON'T KNOW WHAT DATE THE HOME COMING GAME WILL BE.

WE HAVE TO START PLANNING AND THINKING ABOUT IT AT LEAST.

YOU KNOW WE'RE NOT HAVING TO HAVE ALL THE ANSWERS TONIGHT BECAUSE WE DON'T HAVE A SCHEDULE.

LET'S SHARE IDEAS AND THOUGHT.

I AGREE WITH EVERYONE.

WE CANNOT TRY TO CRAM IT INTO STADIUM DEDICATION, NAME DEDICATION AND THE WHOLE BIT.

>> SO, THE EVENT ITSELF LIKE THE SORT OF RECEPTION THING CAN BE ALMOST ANYWHERE.

THE ACTUAL ATHLETIC HALL OF FAME SORT OF HAS TO BE IN THE HALL WAY.

THAT'S THE ONLY THING I THINK WE HAVE TO REALLY PLAN AROUND.

>> I HAVE A QUESTION.

SO, ARE WE READY TO YOU KNOW MAKE A MOTION TO DECIDE TONIGHT WE WANT TO DO IT ON A THURSDAY AS OPPOSED TO SATURDAY OR WE JUST WILL SAVE THE MOTION UNTIL NEXT

[00:45:05]

MONTH AND HOPEFULLY, MARK, HOW SOON, WHEN DOES THE SCHEDULE USUALLY COME OUT.

WHAT MONTH?

>> NOT SURE.

BECAUSE THEY'RE CHANGING THE DISTRICT THIS YEAR AGAIN.

SO YEAH, I HAVE TO FIND OUT.

>> I KNOW.

BUT I WILL KEEP CHECKING CAN JAMES AND TELL YOU AS SOON AS I KNOW.

I DON'T HAVE A DATE YET ON WHEN WE WILL KNOW THE SCHEDULE.

>> YEAH.

WHICH DATE WILL PICK FOR HOME COMING.

THAT'S UP TO JAMES AND PETE WHO THEY WANT TO PICK FOR HOMECOMING.

>> AGAIN.

IN TALKING A COUPLE WEEKS AGO, HE HAS NO IDEA WHEN THEY'RE GOING TO START THAT PROCESS AND WORK ON THE SCHEDULE.

BUT I THINK WE NEED TO BE PREPARED AND AGAIN IT MAY NOT BE HOMECOMING WEEKEND.

WE HAVE TO LOOK AT IT THAT WAY.

>> RIGHT.

WHAT ABOUT -- GO AHEAD.

I'M SORRY.

EXCUSE ME.

IT COMES DOWN TO THE '71 TITANS TO HAVE THAT CEREMONY SEPARATELY, I DON'T SEE THAT BEING A PROBLEM.

I THINK THE OTHER ACTIVITIES THE SCHOOL IS PLANNING SHOULD TAKE PRIORITY OVER US.

IN OTHER WORDS NOT LET US CAUSE IT TO BE A PROBLEM.

GO AHEAD AND HAVE A SEPARATE EVENT FOR US IF THAT MAKES IT EASIER FOR EVERYONE ELSE.

IT'S JUST MY THOUGHT.

>> ALL RIGHT.

ANY OTHER DISCUSSIONS? COMMENTS? INPUT.

>> OKAY.

SO, I'M JUST TRYING TO TRY SOMEONE.

THE '71 TEAM WOULD BE AT THE FIELD CORRECT? ON HOME COMING WHEREVER IT IS? BECAUSE THEY ALWAYS SHOW UP AT HOMECOMING.

I MEAN FOR THE INDUCTION, I MEAN FOR THE LIGHTS.

YOU KNOW WHAT I'M TRYING TO SAY.

BUT IF THEY'RE GOING TO BE THERE, COULDN'T THEY GO AHEAD AND BE RECOGNIZED THAT NIGHT? AS WELL.

I THINK WHAT WAYNE IS SAYING THOUGH, IS THAT IF HAVING THEM THERE IS GOING TO MAKE IT KIND OF UP STAGE THE REST OF THE EVENT.

CORRECT ME IF I AM WRONG, WAYNE, I THINK HE'S SAYING THEY WOULD RATHER NOT DO THAT TO MAKE IT BE TOO MUCH HAPPENING ON ONE DAY.

>> OKAY.

MY THOUGHTS IS, HAVING IT AFTER HOMECOMING.

WHENEVER THEY DECIDE TO HAVE IT.

I MEAN YOU KNOW.

THE PROGRAM.

>> YEAH.

WE HAD A DISCUSSION ABOUT WHETHER OR NOT WE'RE GOING TO THERE'S ENOUGH TIME AND SPACE AND PLACES TO DO THAT AFTER THE HOMECOMING.

YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT AFTER HOMECOMING DAY.

LIKE YOU SAID ON THURSDAY, FRIDAY.

WE CAN DO IT -- >> I THINK WE SHOULD DO IT AT THE HOMECOMING DANCE.

>> NO.

THAT WOULD BE INTERESTING.

AGAIN, CAN I GET A MOTION TO CONTINUE TO TABLE THIS UNTIL WE GET MORE INFORMATION?

>> I MOVE THAT WE TABLE THIS DISCUSSION UNTIL WE GET INFORMATION FROM ATHLETIC OFFICE.

>> I SECOND IT TRACEY.

>> ALL IN FAVOR.

HANDS.

AYE.

>> AYE.

OKAY.

THANK YOU AND WE'LL TABLE THIS AND AGAIN, AS WE GET MORE INFORMATION AND COME UP WITH THE BEST PLAN TO BENEFIT EVERYONE AND MAKE THIS CEREMONY WHAT IT IS.

IT'S A SPECIAL EVENT SPECIAL WE WANT EVERYONE AT THE SAME TIME HOPEFULLY TO DO THIS.

OKAY.

[VI. New Business and Reports]

ON THE AGENDA, NEW BUSINESS.

I HAVE SUSAN.

NEW APPLICATION YOU SAID GOOGLE DOCS -- >> WE HAD ONE NEW APPLICATION FOR MR. MERCER.

[00:50:19]

AND HE'S ON THE AGENDA FOR THURSDAY FOR THE SCHOOL BOARD.

>> OKAY.

>> NEW APPLICATION FOR INDUCTEES.

>> OH, NEW APPLICATIONS FOR INDUCTEES.

>> SO.

WHAT I DID WAS I PUT EVERYTHING ON A GOOGLE DRIVE BECAUSE AS I'M TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHO IS, WHO HAS WHAT IS WHO I HAD TO GET WHAT TO.

I WAS GOING NUTS.

SO, SORRY, I'M TRYING TO SHARE MY SCREEN AND GETTING THIS WEIRD THING.

SO, LET'S SEE.

SO, ALL OF YOU SHOULD HAVE RECEIVED AN INVITE TO THE GOOGLE DRIVE.

FOR THOSE WHO MIGHT BE TECHNOLOGICALLY CHALLENGED, YOU SHOULD HAVE RECEIVED AN E-MAIL WITH THE LINK.

WHEN YOU GET TO THE LINK, IT WILL OPEN UP THIS WHOLE GIANT BINDER AND YOU CAN SEE ALL OF THE APPLICATIONS THAT WE THAT ARE LIVE AND CURRENT.

THERE'S A FEW WITH ADDITIONAL INFORMATION WHICH I COULDN'T GET UPLOADED.

I WILL SLIP THOSE IN AS I GET ADDITIONAL INFORMATION FOR THOSE ALREADY NOMINATED.

I DON'T HAVE THEM SEPARATED BY NEW BUT THE ONES THAT WE MOSTLY GOT HOLD ON, LET ME SEE IF I CAN SHOW YOU.

WHO OUR NEWER APPLICATIONS WERE.

WE HAVE, SORRY -- I WASN'T PREPARED TO SHOW.

BUT THE -- WE HAD ONLY RECEIVED SINCE THE LAST TIME THESE TOP THREE SINCE THE LAST TIME YOU RECEIVED NOTIFICATION.

I DON'T KNOW IF WE WANT TO SHOW THESE PUBLICLY BECAUSE THEY HAVE PERSONAL INFORMATION.

>> LET'S NOT.

BUT THEY ARE IN THESE -- WE GO BACK TO THE GOOGLE DRIVE.

LIKE IF YOU WERE TO CLICK ON ANY OF THESE APPLICATIONS, THEY'RE ALL IN HERE.

SO IF YOU HAVE YOUR BINDER, AND YOU'RE, YOU CAN, I'M GOING TO DO A SPREADSHEET SO YOU CAN SEE LIKE WHAT SHOULD BE IN YOUR BINDER AND THEN WHEN YOU CAN'T FIND THAT PERSON, YOU CAN GO TO THE PAGE OF THE DOCUMENT AND PRINT OUT THE ONE PAGER APPLICATION.

IF YOU WANT TO ADD IT TO YOUR BINDER.

FOR THOSE WHO DON'T HAVE A BINDER, YOU'RE GETTING ONE.

SOME WILL HAVE TO BE MAILED.

WHICH ONE AM I IN? AND THERE'S BLANKS PAGES FOR YOU TO PRINT THEM OUT SO YOU DON'T GET SO YOUR APPLICATIONS ARE SEPARATE.

BUT, IT'S A LOT OF PAPER AND A LOT OF STUFF.

SO, IF YOU'RE, YOU ALL CAN GO IN HERE AND DOWNLOAD IN THE UPPER RIGHT -- YOU CAN GO UP HERE ON THE RIGHT, I CAN'T DO IT WITH ZOOM OPEN.

AND IT WILL LET YOU, EVERY TIME I DO THIS -- OKAY.

IT WILL LET YOU DOWNLOAD YOUR DOCUMENT.

AND THEN YOU CAN PUT IT IN YOUR OWN DRIVE, PRINT OUT THE ENTIRE THING OR PRINT OUT, NOW IF YOU WANT ME TO PRINT OUT THINGS FOR YOU, JUST E-MAIL ME AND I WILL PRINT OUT AND MAIL TO YOU IF YOU'RE NOT IN ALEXANDRIA.

THEN, BUT FOR THOSE OF YOU GETTING BINDER, WHICH IS QUITE A FEW PEOPLE, WHERE IS MY LIFE? MICHAEL JOHNSON.

KAMILAH, DAVID MERCER, WAYNE, ANNIKA, TRACEY AND ROBERTA.

SO, I HAVE SEVEN BINDERS FOR PEOPLE.

>> HOW SOON WILL THE BINDERS GO OUT?

>> THEY SHOULD HAVE, THE ONES BEING MAILED, THE ONES I'M DROPPING OFF WILL BE THERE TOMORROW.

THE ONES THAT ARE BECOME MAILED WILL BE MAILED TOMORROW BUT THEY'RE NOT, IT WILL TAKE A FEW DAYS FOR THEM TO GET THEM.

>> OKAY.

ALL RIGHT.

SO, IT'S A LOT TO THROW ON YOU.

IS IT POSSIBLE HAVING PEOPLE WHO MAY NOT BE ABLE TO COPY ALL THE DOCUMENTS PAGES, IS IT POSSIBLE TO JUST DO A BLANKET COPY TO EVERYONE? OF THE UPDATES?

>> YOU'RE ASKING FOR JUST THE NEW?

>> YEAH.

JUST THE NEW, I MEAN IF THE BINDERS ARE UPDATED.

>> IF EVERYONE'S BINDER IS UPDATED, THE LAST TIME I SENT IT OUT, I SENT OUT NEW STUFF.

[00:55:01]

I WILL HAVE TO SEE WHERE I STARTED AND ENDED IT.

I COULD SEND OUT NEWER STUFF TO THOSE WHO ALREADY HAVE BINDERS AS WELL.

>> IF WE COULD, I KNOW IT'S ASKING A LOT.

IF WE COULD, THAT WOULD BE GREAT.

IT'S NOT A PROBLEM.

I HAD ALREADY STARTED ADDING STUFF TO MY BINDER IN ANTICIPATION I WAS GOING TO COPY IT FOR THE NEW PEOPLE AND THEN I COULDN'T REMEMBER WHICH ONES WERE THE NEW ONES I ADD.

>> JUST SEND TO EVERYONE AND THAT WOULD BE HELPFUL.

THOSE WHO HAVE NO BINDER WILL HAVE A BINDER.

A FULL BINDER.

>> AND YOU KNOW AGAIN, IF LEADERS IN YOUR COMMITTEE CALL FOR INPUT AND YOU HAVEN'T GOTTEN IT, IT'S OKAY TO GIVE SUSAN A CALL OR ASK ANOTHER MEMBER TO SHARE INFORMATION FOR YOU.

HOPEFULLY WE HAVE, EVERYONE WILL HAVE IT WITHIN THE NEXT WEEK OR SO.

>> SO, AND THEN IN THE GOOGLE DRIVE, THERE'S ALSO A DOCUMENT THAT HAS THE COMMITTEE ROSTER IN THERE AND PASS, LIKE THE BY LAWS, THE PAST SCOPE OF WORK AND END OF YEAR REPORTS WHICH HAVE INFORMATION ABOUT WHO IS ALREADY INDUCTED AND STUFF LIKE THAT.

FINISH IF YOU GO ON THE SCHOOL BOARD WEB PAGE AND GO UNDER THE HALL OF FAME, YOU CAN SEE WHO IS INDUCTED IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS ABOUT ATHLETES OR DON'T KNOW WHY YOU DON'T SEE ONE IN THERE.

I PULLED OUT THE ONES THAT HAVE ALREADY BEEN INDUCTED.

SO YOU'RE NOT REVIEWING THEM AGAIN.

>> OKAY.

ALL RIGHT.

ANY QUESTIONS? OKAY.

THANK YOU.

SUSAN.

YOU'RE WELCOME.

>> THAT'S MY REPORT.
