Student Senate elections are here! The 12th and 13th of April are the days to vote for the Student Senators at Germantown.
Here are the candidates’ self-written biographies. Some students did not submit a biography, but their names shall be shown anyways. Those students who ran for executive offices but did not win were allowed to run for a senate seat. So because of this, we will see some familiar names on the list. (These biographies have not been edited in any way. These are truly the candidates’ own words.)
Candidates for Student Senate Senators
My name is Towo Edun. I am a nursing major. I’m running for the position of a senator as one of my involvement in the student life and the school at large. I enjoy working with people and I am also involved with the student life including clubs like the medical careers club and volunteer club. I am very friendly, diligent, trustworthy, and meticulous.
This is Rhiley Farenthold’s first semester at MC and he is very excited to be involved with student life and eager to discover what needs to be implemented and improved upon according to the student body’s voices. Rhiley loves hearing about other’s opinions and beliefs; he is confident that with this ever growing awareness he can offer solid insight, promote greater inclusion, and work towards enriching the campus experience to be more accessible and enjoyable for all. Rhiley has had experience with student leadership positions before, where he facilitated diversity education workshops for youth and held an officer position with his high school’s volunteer club. Rhiley enjoys culture, destroying stigmas, health and wellness, thematic maps, and real politics. Let’s get involved and vote, as we know that’s the only chance for change!
