"This has been one of the best kept secrets on campus; the rumor mill didn't work this time," said Dr. Alan Dayley, director of the Adult Educational Resource Center. Dayley, who has been at WSC for 28 years, said he will remember the president for fostering the "Weber family spirit." Director of Dental Hygiene and 15 year faculty member Dr. Kathleen Lukken said she feels "a sense of loss. I think Stephen Nadauld has worked well with faculty, is personable and is a good leader. He's been excellent for this institution," she said. Nadauld will leave WSC in April to become vice chairman and chief financial officer of Bonneville Pacific Corp. Fighting tears while revealing his decision to faculty and staff Friday afternoon, Nadauld said, "I love what this institution stands for; you're all just the greatest." The WSC President said the Salt Lake City based power plant construction, development, and investment firm approached him four months ago about the position. "But I told them the most important thing on my agenda was to get the university name change passed, and to talk to me after that happened," he said. Vice President for Academic Affairs Robert Smith said he was surprised by the move. "It's disappointing; the college will miss him." Smith, who is on six month sabbatical leave, said he thinks the transition will go smoothly. "There's always some apprehension when there is a change like this. But I sense very strongly we know what we're about as an institution; the college has good leadership," he said. An acting president will be named by the Board of Regents in March. Nadauld, 47, said his decision was not made easily. "I struggled for a couple of months; it's a very emotional thing to leave something that you've wholly invested yourself in." WSC student Dana Willie said she was surprised until she heard what position Nadauld had been offered. "I'd move on if I had an offer like that," she said. Bonneville Pacific Corp. made the offer "very attractive," Nadauld said. "To be a managing partner, in essence, of a financial firm, which is the thing that I'm trained to do and love to do, is a wonderful opportunity." A native of Idaho, Nadauld earned a bachelor's degree from Brigham Young University, a master's degree from Harvard Business School and a doctorate in finance from the university of California at Berkeley. Nadauld said he and his family will continue to live in Ogden. Senior reporter Jeffrey Paul contributed to this article. Hatch motion may restore life to G.I Bill By Shawn Peterson Staff writer of The Signpost A bill submitted Feb. 2, 1989, by Sen. Orrin Hatch may breathe new life into a previously cancelled section of the G.I. Bill. "I am very excited that it's not a dead issue," said LueCille Marquardt, director of the Veterans Administration office. The VA. office is currently compiling a list of veterans affected by the cancellation. "Right now, we have a list of 80 individuals affected by the cancellation," Marquardt said. "Fm sure that there are others who have not been to school in the last few years who are unaware that their benefits are affected." The list will be presented before Congress, and used in a possible class action lawsuit. The cancelled benefit was available to veterans who served on active duty between January 1955, and January 1977. The original bill was given a termination date ofDec. 31, 1989. The bill had a provision stating that those who were still on active duty until June 30, 1988 were eligible to "roll over" onto the Montgomery G.I. Bill. The problem involved veterans who left active duty before the June 30 date. Many were not warned that they would lose benefits if they left the service before U LO that date. "There is one student who was required to leave the military just before the date," Marquardt said. "He's been taking full quarter loads to complete school while he still has some benefits available to him." Additionally, health profession scholarships are being offered by the V. A. Nursing, occupational therapy, and physical therapy students in upper 4 Campus division bachelor's, entry-level master's, and advanced master's degree programs may qualify. Further news from the office includes the announcement of the creation of a veterans organization for women. "There are 5,200 women veterans in the state of Utah," Marquardt said. "Many of the women who have served in the military do not consider themselves veterans. They have benefits avalable to them." Veterans, rtservists, and anyone interested in supporti; organization for women veterans may contact Veda Jones at the Clearfield Job Service center, at 773-8380. The group plans a luncheon March 20 at 1:30 pm at the V.A. Medical Center.

|Description||Weber's current student newspaper, the Signpost, first appeared on September 29, 1937. For two years prior to that time, campus news was disseminated via announcements posted on a bulletin board known as the "Signpost". As a result, the masthead of the first issue of the paper itself featured a rudimentary wooden sign with the title spelled out in rustic-looking letters. Over the years the paper has been published continuously, though the look, size and style has changed several times.|
