ASCC Prepares for a Complete Turnover in Student Leadership

ASCC is looking for students to fill student leadership positions for the 2021-22 school year and every position will be filled by someone not already in ASCC. 

According to ASCC Vice President Ellie Davidson, all the current members are high school seniors preparing to move on from Clark next year. With this great turnover Davidson hopes that this will be an opportunity to diversify the group. 

“Ideally I’d like this next team to have a little bit of variety,” Davidson said. “It’s [been] great for the Running Start voice but it definitely makes it more difficult when none of us have kids or are working full time jobs.”

Davidson said that there are many benefits to joining ASCC, including getting out of your comfort zone, making new friends and learning the inner workings of the college.  

“I really hate public speaking [but] I’ve had to get really comfortable with speaking at meetings, I have to chair different committees and I have to meet with people one-on-one,” said Davidson. “So it’s really pushed me and helped me grow a lot in the last year, even if it’s just online.”

Members of ASCC must be enrolled in at least eight credits, have a cumulative GPA of 2.5 and have completed at least 12 credits at Clark College. Work is limited to 15 hours per week at $13.75 an hour. According to Davidson the work is flexible with student’s school schedules. 

To apply for a student government position, complete the ASCC Student Government Application, submit a cover letter between 250 and 500 words and send a resume to Career Services to get approved by May 14. Applicants will also be virtually interviewed by current ASCC members. 

Students should also keep an eye on the Clark student life Instagram page, where ASCC will be posting student government positions that align best with student’s zodiac signs and personality traits.
