2018-2019 College of Communication and Information Sciences Senate Candidates:
I, Hannah Echols, plan to run for re-election as a Senator under the College of Communication and Information Sciences. I have held several leadership positions during my high school and college careers that have equipped me with the leadership skills needed to be a Senator. Through these positions, I learned the importance of critical decision making and communication and how both are needed in order to accomplish a goal. I am an excellent communicator, open-minded, a dedicated worker, and understand the importance of listening to different views in order to see the bigger picture. I want to listen to students’ opinions and concerns and find ways to improve their learning community. Creating a more open dialogue about strengths and weaknesses would enable the students to have a say in their college. I want to be an advocate for the different people and groups within C&IS and create a college experience where a student does not simply pass through the university, but has the opportunity to better the school and leave a positive mark. I am excited for the opportunity to represent students under my college as well as the University of Alabama.
I, Brooks Payne, hereby declare my candidacy for the Senate of The College of Communication and Information Sciences. I am from Enterprise, AL and am deeply devoted to The University of Alabama. I am pursuing my Bachelor’s Degree Communication Studies. My goal is to further the success and involvement through my college her at The University of Alabama. I am seeking the position of an SGA senator because I believe I am honest, trustworthy, and have the capability of representing my college as a whole. As Communications Senator, I strive to promote the importance of all of the different programs offered through the College of Information and Communication Sciences. Finally, I would like to obtain a seat in the Senate to be an acting voice that represents the College of Communication, while also giving focus to communication overall.
I, Leslie Young, am thrilled to run for the SGA Senate for the College of Communications and Information Sciences. Throughout the past school year, I have worked closely with the Campus Veterans Association as a Military and Veterans Affairs Ambassador. Through this organization, I have worked to raise awareness for programs and services our campus provides to veterans, dependents, and survivors. My experience working with the CVA has encouraged me to lead in other areas of campus I am passionate about. If elected a C&IS Senator, I will work to highlight and make students more aware of all the opportunities C&IS offers, promote understanding and the use of the speaking studio within Reese Phifer Hall, and raise awareness of available resources we have on campus when seeking an internship. Ultimately, as a Senator, I would strive to make all on-campus academic and professional resources easily available to students and more widely known. This is why I, Leslie Young, am running for the C&IS Senate, to continue to work for and improve the college and our campus.
