2019-2020 School of Social Work Senate Candidates:
I am Aubree Cuip and it is my honor to announce my candidacy to represent the School of Social Work as a Senator in this election. I am a sophomore majoring in Social Work from Hartselle, Alabama. My goal has always been to make people comfortable with themselves and their environment. I have been able to make progress in this goal while representing the University by welcoming incoming students as an Avanti Orientation leader and working with the Parker-Adams Living Learning Community which helps acclimate new students to the college life. Being able to serve in SGA and represent the School of Social Work is a big step in terms of my mission to make this campus an inclusive and safe place for all students. Through working with different members of faculty, administrators, and staff, it is my aim to give the school of social work a voice that will resonate with all.
I, Kathryn Hayes, am announcing my candidacy to run for The University of Alabama Student Government Senate on behalf of the School of Social Work. I am a sophomore from Marietta, Georgia, majoring in Social Work with a minor in Spanish. During my time at the Capstone, I have had the opportunities to become involved through various student organizations across campus. This past year I have served as a Senator for the School of Social Work. As a Senator, I have seen the importance of being a voice for the students in the School of Social Work along with all students at The Capstone. I feel it is important to not only share my knowledge and ideas but more importantly to listen to the needs, concerns, and thoughts of my peers. Along with that, I believe that it is important as a member of the Student Government to treat others with respect to gain theirs. As a Senator for the School of Social Work, the two areas I will focus on improving are registration and resources. I will make registration more convenient by adding programs, updating the advising process and related policies. I will also provide students with resources that will enhance their educational experience. I am confident that my actions, experiences, and relationships built as a Senator this past year will enable me to continue to contribute to SGA Senate, and positively represent the University, the School of Social Work and the Capstone tradition of excellence.
I am Devon Longstreet, a Sophomore majoring in Social Work from Orlando, Florida, and I am excited to announce my candidacy to re-run for senator to represent the School of Social Work. Through my experience with Orientation, Housing, and SGA, I have the skill set and resources needed to increase the School of Social Work’s presence on campus and in the community of Tuscaloosa. With the support of my fellow students and faculty, I will do this by enhancing the Social Work Ambassadors program as well as working with senators to collaborate with Tuscaloosa’s Safe Center on spreading awareness of their resources. I am committed to listening to the needs of my peers and will continue to support and represent the student body’s voice as both a senator of Social Work and a representative of The University of Alabama.
