The newly hired 2011-12 Associated Students of Linfield College Cabinet presented themselves to senators during the March 28 Senate meeting. They will be approved by vote at the next meeting April 4 in Riley 201.
The proposed ASLC Cabinet comprises sophomore Thomas Bryan, vice president of business and finance; junior Nicole Bond, vice president of programming; freshman Clara Martinez, secretary; sophomore Nic Miles, club director; junior Mitch Edwards, student center director; junior Daniel Teater, sports director and junior Clair Schneider, publicity director.
Bryan, Bond, Miles and Edwards have all held leadership positions and responsibilities within ASLC and Linfield Activities Board this past year.
Junior Rachel Coffey, ASLC president-elect and junior Bradley Keliinoi, ASLC vice president-elect collaborated with senators to create a hiring committee, which included freshman Yura Sim, sophomore Amanda Bowers and junior Joshua Harper. The committee, advised by Dan Fergueson, director of college activities, interviewed the 18 ASLC Cabinet applicants March 16 and 17. Some of the applicants had applied for more than one position. The committee notified the hires by March 18, Coffey said.
“I was looking for people who would be confident and excited in the position that they were applying for,” Coffey said. “I wanted a team that would help keep my goal of improving communication by having a Cabinet that could interact among itself and with students.”
After the Cabinet is approved by Senate, Bond said that she will begin hiring students for LAB next week.
Bond said she reorganized the LAB positions, combining some of them for a total of six positions for the 2011-12 school year. The new LAB positions include Secretary and Publicity Chair, Musical Entertainment Chair, Special Events Chair, On-Campus Programming Chair, Off-Campus Sports Programming Chair and Off-Campus Cultural Programming Chair.
Applications consist of a cover letter and résumé and are due to Bond by April 11 at 5 p.m.
Other leadership positions available through ASLC include Community Outreach and Environmental Education (CORE), held this year by senior Sarah Valentine, and Business Management Assistant, which was held by Bryan.
Coffey said that these leadership roles are paid stipend positions, and students who are interested in applying should contact Valentine at email@example.com or Bryan at firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications are due April 11 at 5 p.m. to Coffey or to email@example.com.
Leadership positions for the Campus Information Center, Gameroom and Linfield Bike Co-Op, which are overseen by the Student Center Director, will be filled in May, Coffey said.
The Publicity Director’s team, which consists of five students and the Sports Director’s three commissioners, will also be hired in May, Coffey added.
“I am really happy with the new Cabinet and excited for next year,” Coffey said. “Everybody brings something, and I’m confident that they will help me meet my goals.”
