Association announced new officer and deadline for trustee application.
By Aaron Martinez
The Student Government Association discussed student trustee applications, their new public relations officer and going on campus radio station KSYM 90.1 to discuss student government issues Feb. 9 at its second meeting of the semester.
The student trustee application deadline is Thursday, and the officers will vote on an applicant to send to the board Feb. 28.
Although the current student trustee, Jacob Wong, is from this college, any candidate who is qualified will have an equal opportunity throughout the district, SGA President Karen Elliot said.
“We are looking for a student who has the integrity and the desire to represent students at that level,” Elliot said. “We are crossing our fingers and hoping for more (applications) but it really depends on what students are interested in.”
Jami Keeton was appointed commissioner of public relations to run their Facebook and Twitter and advertise events and meetings.
Keeton has made a Twitter account — @SGA_PR — which is another publicizing route, according to Elliot.
Elliot will be on KSYM at 8 a.m. every Wednesday discussing student government and how it could impact students.
“It is completely student-centered,” Elliot said. ”Every now and then, I’ll also ask another student leader to join me. Typically, it will be another student leader from a club or organization because they are very prominent on campus and they represent a pool of students as well.”
President Robert Vela is on KSYM 7:30-8 a.m. every Thursday for the segment “Speaking of SAC” to discuss this college in a broader view concerning faculty, staff and things that happen with students.
The SGA meets the first three Mondays of every month and meetings are open to the public.
