Student Coordinating Council Winners

  1. 1. Student Coordinating Council Candidate Statements
  2. 2. Co-Chair: Lauren Bugh My name is Lauren Bugh and I am a first year student in the MSW program. I am running for the offices of Co-chair. As you can see, I really want to be involved and believe I have a lot to contribute. I have co-chaired many student events throughout college, been a member of steering groups (plan large events at school), have served on the alumni relations committee for student council and my sorority, and love to be involved. I think student council has a lot to offer to the students, faculty and staff. I would love to be a part of this great organization, working to make a difference in all of these groups. The Brown school has many wonderful students an faculty, and I would be honored to work in collaboration with them to better serve this community. I hope that you agree with me, and elect me to be a member of this student council. If you have any further questions, please feel free to ask!
  3. 3. Co-Chair: Kelsey Laitinen As someone who enjoys working with and getting to know a wide variety of people and efforts, I feel that my personality works well with the duties of the Co-Chair position. Responsibilities of this position which require organization, communication skills, and flexibility are exciting to me. In addition, this position provides great opportunity for encouraging involvement and collaboration among the Brown School community. Hopefully this helps to paint a picture as to why I’m interested in running for Co-Chair, but please feel free to ask me any questions!
  4. 4. Community Liaison: Chad Baker I’m interested in being the Community Liaison for several reasons. First, I enjoy getting people together for social events whenever possible. My family places great value on building community and it’s been a common practice for us to get people together for social, philanthropic, service-based and fundraising efforts for as long as I can remember. It’s one of my greatest pleasures to get people together to celebrate any occasion, and it would be awesome to continue that tradition organizing events and gatherings for WashU and the Brown School. Second, community service is like second nature to me. Since I was little, I’d been very involved in organizing and executing community service projects in my hometown of Boston. I have a lot of great ideas for how to increase the Brown School’s presence in the local community by leveraging talents and skills that I’ve witnessed among my peers here and channeling that energy into powerful service projects. Third, through family and friends I’ve met a lot of great, inspiring community leaders that I’d like to introduce the Brown school community to who are working on fantastic projects in their respective communities that I feel would be instrumental to several students, groups and initiatives here in the school. I believe I have a lot of the skills and motivation to pour into this position and bridge the interests of the Brown School community and the St. Louis community in exciting, innovative ways.
  5. 5. MSW General Member: Brian Pieh Hello, My name is Brian Pieh and I am interested in the MSW General Member position. I am interested in the position for a number of reasons. I have never had a significant role in any type of student organization related to student government, and I would like to take on that responsibility and learn more about how student government operates. I think the MSW General Member position would offer the unique opportunity of learning a lot about student government and being involved in many different aspects of student life, but I feel it is a position where I can play more of a supportive role relative to some of the other positions, and that is where I am most comfortable. I think that I can get along with most people pretty well and am willing to take on responsibilities and learn from others, and I think I could be a good addition to the council.
  6. 6. MPH General Member: Nora Geary Hello! My name is Nora Geary and I'm running for the Masters of Public Health General Member. I'm in the first of my three years here at Brown and I'm so excited about all of the amazing opportunities. I've attended MPH events, which have been great (Signature Health Forum, Institute for Public Health Annual Conference, and several documentaries). I know the MPH program is relatively new at the Brown School, which means there is a lot of room for growth. Students at Brown deserve to get the most out of the program and the amazing opportunities for professional development. By nature I'm inquisitive and like to know "who's in the know," and how others can become "in the know." And, when things aren't working, I'm talking about it...talking about it with students, faculty, and staff to figure out what needs to be done. Two (or three) years isn't that much time to have at Brown, let me help you get the most out of it by serving as your General MPH member! This is your time and your education.
  7. 7. Treasurer: Eprise Armstrong As a member of SCC, I'll bring my enthusiasm for life, social justice and education. Most importantly, I'll bring open ears and a desire to see student driven and informed change.
  8. 8. Student Group Liaison: Bryan Capers The position I would like to be considered for is the student group liaison member. I am a strong believer in the idea that success derives from happiness and love. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful. My mission is to continue to promote positivism, garner diversity, spread love, and derive in service. If this is what you are looking for to represent the Student Coordinating Council, then I am your guy.
  9. 9. Secretary: Jasmine Bass I am running for SCC secretary because I would like to be an active participant in the Brown School community. Becoming secretary of SCC would allow me to serve the student body while also serving the SCC committee. I have a passion for working and assisting others and I believe that it is important to be involved within this school. I would also like to use this position to continue to encourage student involvement and be an aid to the student groups offered at the Brown School. If elected I will work my hardest to be an asset to the students and student groups while serving my term as secretary.
  10. 10. Alumni Board Rep: Nora Shields Hi! My name is Nora Shields, and I am running for the Alumni Board Representative member for the Student Coordinating Council. SCC presents a great opportunity to get more involved in the Brown School, and I feel I would be an asset to the council because I am organized, responsible, and dedicated. During college, I was part of my school’s student educational policy committee, and served as a link between faculty and students. Forming bridges between groups is familiar and important work to me, and is one of the reasons the Alumni Board Representative member position is of particular interest. I would be honored to serve as a connection between Brown School alumni and current students, and examine ways we can increase opportunities for meaningful interaction between the two groups.
