Student Government (ASC)
There were 17 outstanding applicants for nine positions for the 2013-14 academic year. An interview committee of three students debated into the night on Thursday, May 16, and half of the morning of May 17 before finally announcing the new members. They are: Habibah Ahmad, Wayne Gao, Wayne King, Christian Leigh, Corbyn May, Patrick McCready, Laura Morgan, Madison Pilster and Chris Wagnon. Congratulations to those nine students. The process was very challenging for the committee and they were forced to leave some outstanding young leaders on the table. However, the selection committee, the ASC and Peninsula College would like to encourage those students to consider serving on the College Council, or in a leadership role with clubs next year and to stay in touch with the ASC for future openings. For more information on those opportunities, please contact ASC Advisor Rick Ross at 360-417-6533 or rross @pencol.edu. Next up for those who were selected is a 3:00 planning meeting, set for May 23 in the PUB.
