My name is Ava Delgado and I am a freshman in the College of Communication Studies and Information Sciences at the University of Alabama. I am a proud member of the Capstone Agency where I currently work as a Junior Strategist on the Alabama Power Client Team. In addition to my involvement within my college, I am also an active member of Alpha Phi Beta Mu Sorority, Alpha Sigma Lambda National Honors and Leadership Organization, as well as a member of the Student Government Association’s First Year Council. I am passionate about promoting the Capstone Creed and am seeking a position as Senator so that I may engage more broadly with the student population.
If elected as Senator representing the College of Communication Studies and Information Sciences (C&IS), I would seek to facilitate dialogue between C&IS administration and the student body regarding co-majoring or minoring within the same college. Many students within C&IS are very passionate about not only their major, but various disciplines within communications. By restricting the ability to double major within C&IS, as well as limiting the ability to minor in another communication discipline, students are unintentionally precluded from pursuing their full comprehensive passions. I would advocate for broader choice and empower students who might be interested in such fields as Advertising AND Public Relations with the opportunity to comprehensively learn about both disciplines either as a double major or by obtaining a minor that would enable such learning.
I am Madeline Martin, and I am excited to announce my Senate candidacy for the College of Communication and Information Sciences! My leadership experience as an elected officer in advancing my classmates, promoting numerous club associations, and participating in diverse community service organizations has enriched my views of society. My varied involvement instilled the qualities of impeccable character you expect in your Senator. I proudly serve as a Councilor of SGA’s First Year Council. Working with Make-A-Wish, I am drawn to charitable goals because, as University of Alabama students, we must all serve humanity with compassion. My Senate platform is to create a mentorship program to include Tuscaloosa’s middle and high school students who are in need of academic assistance and optimistic encouragement. We can make a positive impact on students who are challenged by those critical years of middle school and high school. I look forward to talking with you and hearing your ideas to broaden the beneficial influence of service by The University of Alabama’s historic partnership with our community. I ask you to join me on March 3rd because #YouMattertoMartin!
