FOR PRESIDENT

Jordan Boltinghouse; Thatcher High, Thatcher AZ

Students of EAC let’s face it; ASEAC shouldn’t just be about the student council members or faculty of EAC. It should be about our student body, it should be about YOU! What changes do you as students want? It’s time for your voices to be heard! You may not realize this, but together we can make EAC even more entertaining, enjoyable, and memorable. “EAC is too great for small dreams.” Vote Jordan BOLTINGHOUSE!

Jordan Sikora; La Cueva High, Albuquerque NM

While in office, I want to achieve the goal of uniting the student body of Eastern Arizona College. It’s important that every student, no matter his/her age, race, or religion, has the experience of their life, and receives the best education possible. EAC has much to offer and many are not having the experience that they had hoped for. By putting aside our differences, we can achieve this together to become one in purpose.

FOR VICE-PRESIDENT

Kari Dargie; Mesa High, Mesa AZ

As ASEAC Vice President, my goals are:
-to bring the students closer together by promoting various activities
-to help get the students more excited to be involved
-to help the President stay sane by giving him ideas and by supporting his decisions.

Dani Skinner; Loudoon Valley High School, Virginia

As most have already heard, I am running for Vice President of our student council! I have many ideas and goals I have come up with if I were to get this position. I am a very organized and determined person. All through my high school career I was the president and activities coordinator for many of our club groups, and always did the job to the best of my ability. I have already had a lot of experience in planning homecomings, so I know just what and what not to do to make this day one to remember!

FOR SECRETARY

Alexander Johnson; La Cueva High School, Albuquerque NM

Hello! My name is Alex Johnson and this is my expressed wish to become the ASEAC student body secretary. It is my desire to work with the students and faculty of Eastern Arizona College in order to utilize the potential this school has. While learning is important and our main focus here, I also feel that part of the college experience is to have fun and I have lots of ideas for service projects, fundraisers, and activities.

Stacie Winterton; Cibola High School, Yuma AZ

My name is Stacie Winterton and I have been attending EAC for 2 years now. I have had so much fun here with all the activities that the school puts on. I have enjoyed being involved so much that I would like to become part of your student council to help you have a blast as well. I want to continue being involved and help give good ideas for fun things to do around campus. I will make sure to be organized and take accurate notes at the student council meetings. We will have a great year! Thanks.

FOR SERVICE COORDINATOR

Kristin Travis; Wickenburg High School, Wickenburg AZ

My goals for next year are to keep a bank of available and fun service projects. One of my concerns is that not enough people are involved in these, so I would find projects that all would like to participate in and be a part of. With the other people elected, we will find ways to make next year unforgettable and tons of fun.

FOR EXECUTIVE ASSISTANT

Emily Tipton; Desert Ridge High School, Mesa AZ

My name is Emily Tipton and I want to be your next Executive Assistant for the ASEAC. I feel that because of my experience in student council, I am a great candidate for this position. I am aware of the dedication and hard work it takes to serve the entire school and I am just the girl for the job to make an already great school better. I can not wait to help serve, plan, and unite the students of Eastern Arizona College to make your college the best it can possibly be!

FOR PUBLICITY COORDINATOR

Megan McGee; Ironwood Ridge High School, Tucson AZ

Next year, I want to be able to inform everyone about the fun activities that we will have planned. I want every student to have the best college experience by getting involved and participating in activities! Along with the other council members, I would like to help plan activities and service projects that would benefit the students and truly make it a memorable year!
