Six students have applied to be this college’s nominee for the nonvoting student position recently approved by the Alamo Colleges board of trustees.

Students at each of the district’s five colleges were asked to submit applications to their Student Government Association by March 20.

This college’s applicants are psychology sophomore Jacob Wong, who served as SGA president 2011-12 and 2012-13; biology pre-med freshman Italli R. Liberatore; speech sophomore Jared Edman; biology sophomore Casey Crisostomo; criminal justice freshman Jacqueline Guerrero; and pre-med freshman Jared A. Laney.

This college’s Student Government Association scheduled interviews with candidates Thursday. SGA President Andrew Hubbard said a nominee will be chosen by SGA officers Monday although advisers sat in on interviews.

The board will interview one nominee per college in April and choose a student trustee and alternate at the May 13 regular board meeting.

The student trustee and alternate will serve a one-year term, are not allowed in executive sessions and must attend all board and committee meetings. The student trustee will receive a $600 scholarship; the alternate will not.

The alternate attends all meetings in case the student trustee is absent or leaves prior to completion of the term.

“We aren’t looking for a student to tell administration what to do. We are looking for an open-ended conversation every time,” Hubbard said.
