While Peninsula College has been interviewing presidential candidates, the Associated Student Council (ASC) has been working hard to select their 2022-2023 team.
“We had 20 total candidates interview for 11 positions and they were all so good, we decided to bring on 12 of them,” Associate Dean for Athletics & Student Life Rick Ross said.
Isaiah Penniston-John of Las Vegas will be Peninsula’s 62nd ASC president, joined by vice presidents Don Devos of Germany and Hedvig Persson of Sweden. The directors and programmers will include Nathan Barber, Rachel Cooper, and Lakem Folsom, all of Port Angeles; Lauren La Fountain of Reno, NV; Minnie Lee of China; Jem Ndja of England; Aiden Olmstead of Bremerton; Mya Raunig of Vancouver, WA; and Gabe Tinsley of Bonney Lake, WA.
The three executive officers will earn a scholarship valued at $5,000. The other nine members will receive scholarships totaling approximately $2,500. The 12 student leaders will hold a planning meeting on May 19, and begin their training and term of service in September. All 12 members were selected by student-led interview committees as outlined in the ASC Constitution and bylaws.
