It is amazing that the people around here are so open to the college kids and try to help them out anyway they can.David Peebles
He has been a member of Student Senate for four years and commented on the news that he had been elected the President, “At first, it was actually really nerve racking because I had never been in a position like this before, but being in it now and having the student government executive council with me is great. They are a huge help and they make me feel like this is something I can do very well.”
Extremely active on campus, David’s involvement in student life is sure to be an asset to his new leadership role. Currently, he is involved in Marching Band, Concert Band, SOEA, History Club, and NAfME as well as serving as the Head RA of Field Hall. He has previously also been a member of the Choir as well as serving as the Parliamentarian of Student Senate and working as a Student Coach for Aggie Football.
In his role as the president, David will serve as a bridge between administration and the student body. He runs the student executive council meetings and oversees the student government meetings both of which meet twice a month. As for future goals, David would like to actually fill each of the actual seats available within the student government association in an effort to make the voice of the students as big as possible. Part of reaching this goal will include starting new clubs and getting non active clubs involved again. Another part of his vision is to have an active executive council. “We want the clubs to know we want to support their events, and we are interested in what they want to do.”
Student Senate Advisor Kim Tuttle commented, “The student body looks up to David as a tenured student on campus and I am excited to see him continue to realize his potential as an effective campus leader.”
As far as his favorite thing about being an Aggie, “It is going to sound very cliché but it really is the people out here. It is amazing that the people around here are so open to the college kids and try to help them out anyway they can. With the university being small it helps me know that I am not a number and the teachers actually get to know who we are.”
The future looks bright for David as he continues to pursue his goals. Future plans include staying in this area to teach history and coach football.
