Hanging of the Green

“The Student Government Association sponsored the first annual “’Hanging of the Green” on December 6, 1983. Craig Hembree and Larry Carter provided the musical portion of the program; Dean Poinsett spoke on “The Importance of Greenery”, Dr. Dennis Sansom gave a devotional and everyone joined in the caroling. More than ten campus organizations hung wreaths in Bywaters Student Lounge to commemorate the birth of Jesus. To cap off the evening, refreshments were served and everyone had an opportunity to participate in decorating the lounge Christmas tree.” – Spartan 1984 (Yearbook)
