My name is Payton Christian and I believe I would make an excellent Education Senator for the University. I am running for Education Senator because I have the leadership qualities to fulfill the expectations for this position. I want to give the students of the Education Department a voice and help them to be successful by finding innovative ways to prepare them for their education career. With new ways to assist all Education majors with the requirements they have to endure, success will be achieved on an individual basis. Ultimately, through my service as a senator, I would spread awareness for the different opportunities that the Education Department holds for its students.
Hello, my name is Brad Day and I am from Robertsdale, Alabama. As a freshman, I am majoring in secondary education in social science. While in high school, I was elected to serve as the senior class president. While serving as class president, I worked with the administration to see that we raised more money, held more events, and saw more academic success than years before. Since coming to the University of Alabama, I have been active in organizations both on and off-campus. These include organizations such as the Million Dollar Band, FBCM, and the Community Soup Bowl.
Being involved among my peers has always been something that I have been passionate about. I am running for the Senate so that I can have opportunities to advocate for the student body, better the College of Education, and be an ambassador for the University of Alabama.
As a senator for the college of education, I will make myself accessible to my constituency, support the traditional social and educational clubs on campus, promote honest government, pass a balanced budget, vote on appointments based on ideals and traditions at UA, and support legislation that works best for both the College of Education and the University of Alabama.
I am Chloe Grammer, a sophomore majoring in elementary education from Dothan, Alabama, and I am proud to announce my candidacy for Senator representing the College of Education. Throughout my time here at the Capstone, I have had the opportunity to gain experiences through my involvement across campus. I have represented the University by welcoming incoming students as an orientation leader, being an active member in Greek life, investing myself in honor societies, as well as participating in Dance Alabama. As your Senator, I will be devoting my efforts to battling sexual assault and human trafficking on our campus. The lack of awareness and education on these two prevalent issues is a disservice to students. I believe that every student should feel safe while on campus and I am determined to take the necessary steps to keep students safe and informed on this campus. The conversation has been started and together it is time to take action. We have the power to make this university a better and safer place for all students.
My name is Ellie Schulman, and I am excited to announce that I am running for a Senate seat in the College of Education. I am a junior Secondary Education and History double major and I hope to be a high school history teacher and guidance counselor one day. This year, I served as a Senator in the Student Government Association and I have previously been a member of SGA’s Environmental Cabinet and the First Year Council. My involvement on campus has also extended to volunteering through Al’s Pals and STEAM, Greek life, and the Honors College. As a Senator, I hope to update the Degree Works program for the COE to make sure that all students are well-informed, create a wait time program for the Ferguson Package Center so that students can plan ahead, and implement an early syllabi database for all academic classes. My ultimate goal as a Senator is to better the lives of students in the College of Education and continue the legacy of excellence that the college and the Capstone as a whole have set forth. I would be honored to serve as a Senator once again and represent my college.
