Student Government (ASC)
In an effort to meet a financial obligation to maintain Peninsula College parking lots, the ASC is proposing a $16 Transportation Fee to be assessed to all fee-paying students, effective fall quarter 2015. This fee combines the current parking fee of $7 with a $1 increase to allow students in Jefferson County to ride Jefferson Transit buses AND an $8 increase to cover parking hang tags and parking lot maintenance. Please see all the details and the rationale below. The election is from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on June 11 at the PUB in Port Angeles and also at the front desk at Peninsula College Forks and Peninsula College Port Townsend.
2015-16 ASC named
The ASC Selection Committee interviewed 22 outstanding candidates for the 2015-16 Student Government and deliberated into Tuesday afternoon. Unfortunately the committee could not choose them all, so we're hoping that those who were not selected will consider other leadership positions with clubs, or possibly the College Council. It's also common the ASC will have turnover and will use the list of applicants to recruit a new member over the course of the new academic year.
Here is the team of Governance and Programming members for 2015-16: David Copeland, Director of Legislative Affairs; Mia Steben, Director of Clubs; Michelle Whan, Director of Records and Finance; Jeannevieve Davidson, Director of Community and Environmental Affairs; Luthfan Wickasono, Director of Marketing; Emily Larson, Director of Public Relations; Jeremiah Hobbs, Director of Event Planning; Kristy Diep, Director of Event Facilitation. Congratulations to those eight members. The Peninsula College Forks Liaison and the Peninsula College Port Townsend Liaison remain open until filled.
The 2015-16 executive team includes: President Elect Sydney Roberts, Vice President Elect Zak Hoskins, and Vice President of Programming Elect Kennady Whitehead.
