Name: Arielle Perkins
Position on ASLC Cabinet: VP of Business and Finance
Majors: Accounting and math
Hometown: Corvallis, Mont.
The Linfield Review: What experience do you have that qualifies you for the position?
Perkins: I was business manager, so I was the assistant to the current vice president of business and finance. So I got to learn a lot of what goes on in the office and to participate in LAB, as well. I’m an accounting major, as well, so I know a lot about numbers.
TLR: What major goals do you have for the coming year?
Perkins: I’ve come up with a couple goals. One is better communication with clubs and the accounting office and facilities. Also, I would like to better advertise the funds available to clubs other than their own.
TLR: What would you like to build on from your predecessor’s tenure in office?
Perkins: [Communication and advertising] are improvements on what he did. I think there are things he wants to do or wanted to do but didn’t have the opportunity. I worked with [senior] Chris [McIsaac] all year, and I think he did a great job. I have a lot to live up to because he did such a great job.
TLR: Is there anything you would like to say to other students as the incoming vice president of business and finance?
Perkins: I feel like clubs don’t feel like they can come talk to me … for help with financial things. If they want those funds, I want them to feel free to come talk to me.
