Chairman E. Carter Corriston's announcement that the measure before the board was met enthusiastically by students who had come out wearing T-shirts reading "Educate and empower me."

The students were more subdued than they were at the previous meeting, where they demonstrated against the board's move to table the vote, but many still had concerns about the specific wording of the resolution.
