Many students have seen the Student Programs leaders ran around campus in their gray sweatshirts—giving out free food, helping guide students and hosting events.
The students who hold these positions had applied and were hired in June. They have been training during the summer to bring students the best school year that they can.
On Sept. 30 the applications to run for a student representative position were due; these are paid positions offered by the Student Programs office for Pierce students.
There were two positions available — evening student representative and environmental representative.
In the Oct. 12-13 election, 473 ballots — representing 17 percent of the total student body — were cast.
Angel Truong ran uncontested, winning the role of evening representative. In the election for environmental representative, Kasie McAfee won with 216 votes, defeating James Hunt and Shelby Pyle.
