Fullerton College: A Pictorial History

Apathy toward student government proved particularly embarrassing from February 1969 to February 1970 when Fullerton College saw the passing of the presidential position to four separate students. One of those Presidents was Kim Kanel, shown here on the front cover of the February 11, 1970 Hornet drafting his resignation letter. Those resigning complained of student apathy, a lack of campus support, an undefined student constitution, and red tape in getting things done. The situation became worse in October 1973, when John Powell, Senator-at-Large, was forced to resign when it was discovered that he was not the recipient of the Congressional Medal of Honor he claimed to have received. In an interview in the February 13, 1973 Hornet, Powell had also claimed that he was a guest of honor at President Nixon’s Inaugural Ball.
