WILMORE, KY—The votes are in, and after one of the best voter turnouts in several years the students of Asbury College have elected their 2008-2009 Asbury College Student Congress (ACSC) Executive Committee.
Ian Canada ’09 was elected as the president of the ACSC. His duties include moderating all meetings of the ACSC and meeting with other members of the executive council as well as functioning as the voice of the College’s students to the administration.
Samuel Purcell ’08 was elected as the vice president for governance. His duties will include holding meetings that will set policies for Asbury College in areas such as academics, parking safety, intercultural relations, and various issues related to the student body.
Liles Taylor ’09 was elected as the vice president for student activities. His duties will include being responsible for campus events such as concerts, movie nights, and Class Clash Bash.
Sarah McQueen ’09 was elected as the student body secretary. Her duties will include writing official letters, keeping members of the ACSC informed of meetings, and keeping official minutes at all ACSC meetings.
Katelyn Auvenshine ’09 was elected student body treasurer. Her duties will include keeping an accurate budget for all branches of the ACSC, writing check requests, and serving as a resource for class and organization treasurers.
Both the vice president for spiritual life and public relations director will be chosen by the executive council and announced at a later date.
Canada said he was humbled by opportunity to lead the student body during the next school year.
"It is an honor and a privilege to be elected as student body president of such a great institution as Asbury College," Canada said. "I, along with the rest of the Executive Committee, look forward to serving the student body and finding ways to improve the student experience at Asbury as well as communication between student government and its students."
