2019-2020 College of Human and Environmental Sciences Senate Candidates:
Hi! I’m Harris Bolus, a junior majoring in Nutrition. I’ve served as your senator for the last two years and I hope to continue working for you in a third term! My goals include getting the campus certified as Bee Friendly through the national organization Bee City USA, starting gardens on campus, and improving communication with you by hosting Town Hall events twice per semester. Toward the goal of Bee Friendly certification, I’ve passed a resolution to express the SGA’s support and I co-founded a club to work toward fulfilling the different requirements. I’ve also started two pollinator gardens on campus and I plan to start more next semester! I hope to earn your vote so that I can continue working toward these goals.
My name is Kaelyn Embler and I am formally expressing my intentions to run as a representative of the College of Human and Environmental Sciences. I am a sophomore Consumer Science Major with the intentions of focusing on the betterment of our college by improving our classroom environments, the advising process, and the extension of lab hours. The past two years I have had the opportunity to serve on First Year Council and Lobby Board and I believe that my experiences will allow me to be a competent voice for the concerns of my peers. If I am able to serve my peers as a senator, I will encourage others to stand with me as I pursue and promote a more positive and productive learning environment. The University of Alabama is known for their students’ outstanding achievements. A lifetime of accomplishments starts in a classroom so by enhancing our learning environments it will be even easier for my peers to thrive academically and ultimately find success professionally.
My name is Tatum Madden and I am running for College of Human Environmental Science Senate.
As a sophomore Interior Design major, I am confident my involvement in American Society of Interior Designers, The Advertising Federation, and sorority life have given me the leadership and communication skills necessary to be a contributing member of Student Senate.
I am running for senate to continue the standard of excellence at the University of Alabama and to ensure that my peers in the College of Human Environmental Sciences [HES] best interests are represented. As a senator candidate my three primary goals are (1) collaboration within colleges to stimulate post collegiate awareness, (2) increase outdoor study spaces, and (3) the implementation of an HES educational and networking database.
(1) Combine the talents of HES with that of other colleges by collaborating with each other where the two professions intersect to provide post collegiate alignment. For example, Culverhouse Department of Finance could aid Apparel and Textile students with the creation of a business plan.
(2) Create more outdoor study spaces around campus, such as libraries and academic buildings. Allowing students opportunities to enjoy and use our beautiful campus.
(3) Create a career specific database that HES students could access for support. Each career path within HES would have a page with resources to include notable alumni, regional average income for HES careers, student’s within each major willing to mentor and other information that would be helpful as students begin planning for success at and beyond the Capstone.
My name is Mary Frances Robertson and it would be a privilege and an honor to represent The College of Human Environmental Sciences as Senate for our Student Government Association. This University has provided me with resources and has acted as an excellent foundation for higher education. I have enjoyed being involved in several student-led organizations and hope to continue my involvement through this position. If elected, I will be engaged and motivated, ensuring that all Human Environmental Sciences students achieve the most during their four years here at the Capstone. I aim to grow our success as a college and increase each student’s knowledge on the majors that HES provides. I am a hard worker, always putting others first and seeking to serve my peers to the best of my ability. During my time at UA, I have fostered many relationships and seek to continue growing these relations if selected as senate. I want to represent HES students in a positive way and help each student feel not only included in the college, but also in the community HES offers.
I, Kaitlin Wiltshire, am expressing my intent to serve the College of Human Environmental Sciences as an SGA Senator. I am from Agoura Hills, California and am studying Hospitality Management. If elected senator, I intend to work diligently to advocate for HES students and express all the resources HES has to offer. I will strive to serve as a liaison between SGA and UAPD in an effort to effectively educate our campus while continuing to ensure the safety of all students. Student safety and achievement is my priority and I will focus on exploring all avenues to allow students to thrive on our campus. In an effort to grow HES, I will work alongside HES staff to enact more alumni networking opportunities and events, providing valuable experiences for students. I believe that HES alumni are extremely knowledgeable and would greatly support current students in their future careers. Having served as a member of the First Year Council, I am experienced in the ways of SGA and am confident in my abilities to immediately serve in a reliable, knowledgeable manner. I am looking forward to the opportunity to serve as an SGA senator and humbly request your support.
