Executive Officers 2018-19
ASC Selection Committee names 2019-20 team
The ASC Selection Committee interviewed 17 candidates for 8 positions on the 2019-20 student government and all 17 were qualified, enthusiastic, and pretty awesome young women and men. Unfortunately, they could only choose 8, and they were looking at the best fit for the various positions, and the best representation of the campus community. After much deliberation, the committee chose the following students: Niko Borgeman, Saki Kambe, Chloe Keenan-Merlo, Logan Matlock, Keith Seldon, Katelyn Sheldon, Cheyenne Wagner, and Matthew Wilkinson. We would strongly urge the other nine candidates to consider leadership roles on campus clubs (see list on our web site); applying for one of three positions on the College Council, an organization made up of faculty, administration, staff and students who meet once or twice a quarter (see Rick Ross); or applying for a paid position as a student ambassador (see Pirate Central). It is also common that a member of the ASC will not be able to fill his or her position and it's encouraged for students to stay in touch should an opportunity present itself.
The 8 students selected Thursday night will join ASC President Casandra White, Vice President Samantha Oliveira, and Vice President of Programming Elita Nevins to complete the 2019-20 leadership team. The entire team of 11 will meet with the outgoing 11 members of the ASC from 5:00 to 7:30 on June 5 in Room J-47. Light refreshments will be provided.
