"I would like to run for President. I feel a deep connection to the people of Eastern Kentucky. I’m new to the area (3 years), but feel like I have been here all my life. I think a strong President could help pull the students together. I connect easily to people. I’m not afraid of issues and I know how to confront them head on."

"I feel I would be a good fit for this leadership position because I have had a leadership role before and I always gave everything I had in order to make sure everything runs smoothly. I am a member of the Honors Program and that comes with a leadership role. Things I am passionate about- helping people, working hard, and being honest."

"I would be honored to represent Big Sandy Community & Technical College’s student body as Vice President. Holding this position would allow me to communicate the concerns of the student body to the Administration and the Board of Directors. I feel I am suitable for this position because I am a great communicator and I am able to lead and organize group projects. I am also personable and will take this opportunity to reach out and help my peers."

"I believe that I possess the necessary qualities to help the President in leading the Association: ambition, the ability to lead when necessary, and a sensible mind. I enjoy dedicating my time to the school and community, and I like knowing that I am needed and that my help can benefit the school in a positive manner."

"Students seem to be less engaged in campus life on the Pikeville campus. Representation in decision making processes might change that. I was an SGA officer in high school and we actually managed to enact a few student issues. If nothing else, at least students might be more aware of programs like Build Smart before they become official."
