Letter to the editor – Shelby Simmons
My name is Shelby Simmons, and I am running for ASLC President. I am a junior double major in Political Science and Communication Arts, with a minor in business. I recently came back from a January term in Ecuador for Ecology and Evolution, exploring the Amazon, the Galapagos, and the capital city Quito.
I am involved in many aspects of campus life. Freshman year, I was the hall president to Memorial hall. I am a current work-study employee at the Admissions office, where I serve as an Ambassador to prospective and incoming students. I am the Founder and President of the Pre-Law club. I am very involved in my sorority, Phi Sigma Sigma, where I have served as committee head for campus relations, which is in charge of Greek Week and Homecoming. I have also served as the Senator. I have captained several IM sports teams as well as playing in the annual benefit powderpuff game Phi Sig. Most recently, I was the Alumnae chair. I serve currently as the ASLC Secretary, making up one of the five executive cabinet members. I feel all of my involvement has made me a strong and qualified candidate.
My goal as president is to represent the student body fairly. I hope to accomplish this by being approachable, so communication lines are open between cabinet and students. I believe all students should be heard, no matter how small an issue or question. I would like to continue to improve the campus involvement, and see more inclusiveness and school spirit in campus activities.
I believe am the best candidate to be the 2010-2011 president. The ASLC presidency has been a goal of mine for a long time, and I know that I will succeed at the goals I have set forth. On Tuesday, March 9, 2010, remember to vote. If you want to have your voice heard, and it really should be, come on out and vote for Shelby!
