New trustee will serve a one-year term.
By Aaron Martinez
Nominees for the student trustee will be interviewed during a special board meeting at 6 p.m. April 7 in Room 101 of Killen Center.
This college’s candidate, liberal arts sophomore Jami Keeton, will be up against four other nominees from the other four district colleges.
Each college’s Student Government Association chose one nominee.
“I am very anxious for the meeting,” Keeton said. “All of us have been candidates for a month or so, so it’s time to know (the decision.)”
The nominees will be interviewed separately, then after all five nominees are interviewed, the nominees will watch the board pick the student trustee and alternate student trustee.
All students are encouraged to go, Keeton said.
The SGA officers from this college will attend in support of Keeton and the other nominees.
Northeast Lakeview is in the process of establishing an SGA, but has delegates in place of officers for now.
The student trustee will serve a one-year term from May 1 to April 30, 2016, and will receive a scholarship of $300 per semester.
The board also will choose an alternate trustee in the same meeting, who will not receive a scholarship but will shadow the student trustee and attend all meetings.
The student trustee will not be able to vote during board meetings or attend executive sessions.
