Student elections approaching

Student Elections for the Student Senate Executive Offices will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on April 19-20 on the second floor of the Rogers Student Center.

The positions needing to be filled are the executive senate president, executive senate vice-president, executive senate secretary, historian, treasurer and parliamentarian.

According to TJC, the requirements for any of these positions include being a full-time student with at least 12 hours of classes, must not be on academic probation or suspension, maintain at least a 2.5 GPA, pledge intentions of being a full-time student through their term of office, and give evidence of achieving a second-year standing by next fall.

Each position comes with its own job description and specific set of duties.

“The historian would head up the scrap booking committee and take photos at different events,” said Student Senate President Austin Witherspoon.

“The treasurer manages all of the Student State funds and makes sure that we don’t go over budget. The parliamentarian makes sure that all rules, policies, and procedures are followed during all events and meetings. The secretary takes down the minutes at every meeting, copies them and distributes them for future meetings. The vice-president organizes election committees and is the right hand to the president. They help the president with anything he or she may need. The president is the chairman of SSFAC and makes sure that all meetings are run in order. They are also the liaison to faculty and administration,” said Witherspoon.

According to Vincent Nguyen, Director of Student Life and Involvement, one has to be a registered TJC student and have a valid student ID to vote.

At press time the list of nominees was unavailable.
