Student Representative Candidate Sarah Schultz

Program: Liberal Arts Transfer Candidacy statement: During my time at Madison College I have been active on the Performing Arts Leadership Team and the Student Activities Board. Through my involvement on these teams I have grown curious about how Madison College is overseen, and how people in positions of power aim to support every type of student at the college. This position provides an opportunity for me to gain new perspective on the administrative aspects of our technical colleges, while also doing my part to remain conscious of the diversity of the Madison College student population. *********************************************** About the Student Representative Position The collective action of the Madison College Student Senate and of the Madison College District Board, during the Fall of 2013, created an opportunity for a student of Madison College to serve as a Student Representative to the Madison Area Technical College District Board. The student is a "non-voting member," because Wisconsin State Statute 38.108 defines District Board "voting membership" as being "appointed by a committee comprised of 12 county board chairs from the counties which make up the Madison Area Technical College District." The Non-Voting Student Representative to the District Board will be elected by the student body. Elections will take place April 18 - April 29, 2018. The elected representative will take their seat to the Madison Area Technical College Board on July 1, 2018.  

Student Representative Candidate Britton Downing

Program: Liberal Arts Transfer Candidacy statement: My name is Britton Downing, I am currently the Vice President of Service for Phi Theta Kappa, (the Honor Society at Madison College). During my tenure, I have had the honor of working with many other students, student organizations, and faculty at the college. It has been a learning process as well as an education regarding the challenges and successes that all students experience. I was on a team this year that explored "the reasons why students drop out of college". It was a learning experience for students and staff, and personally it gave me better understanding of college as a community, and the constant advocacy on a wide array of issues that is necessary for our students success. That advocacy is incumbent on all staff and students who are capable. The project won a Regional award and is up for an Intentional award, but I am far more proud of the conversations that it started, and the awareness of the issue that it raised. Recently, I helped organize an event where a State Representative came to speak regarding an issue that has a relevance to the majority of Madison College students. This experience reminded me of the importance of having Representation, actually having a Voice in room where the decisions are made. These events, and a lifetime more, have energized me and reinforced my inclination to serve my fellow students in a capacity that will represent everyone at Madison College. I am very excited to be considered for this position. If elected to be the Student Representative to the District Board, I will provide the Voice of the Students at District Board meetings. I look forward to the opportunity to serve You. Thank you!
