By Jodi Pierce, Advisor/Student Senate Staff Advisor, CIP Brevard Center
The 2011-2012 Student Senate campaign has begun at the Brevard Center. Returning students Rick O., Dodge M., Ross M., Thomas S., and Zachary S. have entered the race. New students Taylor B. (a January 2011 admission) and Colin Z. are also running.
The Brevard Center Student Senate consists of four members: president, vice president, treasury and secretary. The seven nominees will campaign by using creative flyers, digital media and social networking, followed by speeches during the September 21st all student, all staff meeting. Elections will be held on September 22nd. Best wishes to all of our potential leaders at the Brevard Center!
Last year, Moultrie W., Zachary S., Dodge M., and Andrew Maris were very active as Student Senators. They wrapped up a year of parties, van clean ups, guest speakers and community activities with a weeklong Student Senate Café during finals. While most of the students were cramming for exams and staff was busy providing support, everyone had the chance to purchase a made to order breakfast.
Moultrie and Zach cooked eggs, ham and veggie scrambles for students and staff and earned a little cash to support senate activities. No crepes here, but they did a great job balancing their senate roles with their own studying to make sure that folks were fueled up for the busy week. Zach can fry an egg and study for a Psych final at the same time! Nice job, Senators.
