Description: This letter, dated May 9, 1969, is University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG) Chancellor James Sharbrough Ferguson's response to an April 30 letter from UNCG student Nancy Kay Highfill. In her letter, Highfill had expressed dissatisfaction with the food services provided by contractor ARA Slater and had suggested some changes in the program. Ferguson's response notes that negotiations are occurring with student input and that Highfill's suggestion of a “pay as you go” plan is among the ideas under consideration. This exchange follows the food workers' strike that took place at UNCG from March 27 to April 2, 1969.
