Following the ASWN Election in May, five positions were determined.
Gabrielle Clark will continue as president after assuming that role for the 2020 spring semester.
“I am enthusiastic, outgoing and I love connecting with everyone,” Clark said. “I am excited to be a part of the WNC and ASWN community because I love seeing the best in people and finding new ways to work together to help a greater cause.”
Also retaining their roles from the past year are treasurer Julia Cruz and senator Maria Ramirez.
“I’m very excited to be a part of ASWN for the upcoming year,” Cruz said. “I can’t wait to make an impact around our campus. But most importantly to help make this year one of the best!”
Officers with new roles are Michael Robinson, who will move from senator to vice president, and Addison Fredeen, who will fill the role of secretary after serving as a senator previously.
“This is my last year at WNC and I am so excited to serve ASWN and the students in this new role,” Fredeen said. “I want to help make the voice of the students at our school known and heard! I’m looking forward to being part of student government next year!”
ASWN is still looking for more senators. If you are interested, contact ASWN Adviser Heather Rikalo at email@example.com. Rikalo has missed working with the student government leaders on campus during the COVID-19 health crisis.
“I am beyond excited to get back on campus and start working and collaborating with our newly elected ASWN officers,” said Rikalo, who also serves as interim Student Life coordinator. “Their enthusiasm is contagious and I am honored to be their adviser and look forward to supporting their growth as leaders.”
Along with providing a voice for students on campus, ASWN officers organize events on campus, serve on college committees, build leadership skills and serve the community.
Officers will begin training in June. Along with team-building exercises, ASWN officers will receive training on Robert’s Rules, Nevada Open Meeting Law, ASWN Constitution and By-Laws, shared governance, running effective meetings, managing their time, event planning and more.
