Activities, activities. Four students are battling against each other for the privilege of planning Corban’s school-wide events for the 2012-13 school year. Cassie Forster, Janae Grieb, Jenna Harbeck and Jeffrey Morse are in the race for ASB’s Activities Coordinator.
Janae Grieb: Activities
It takes Janae Grieb 12 hours to drive to Corban from her town of Patterson, Calif. The 18-year-old freshman is an elementary education major who has a weird fetish for collecting things, including movie stubs. “I have one from 2004 when watching a movie at night in the theatres was only $5.75,” she says. Grieb’s favorite thing about Corban is the activities. “I love how Corban students come together and enjoy each other’s company, while having fun swing dancing, square dancing or even rushing into freezing ocean water,” she says. If elected, her goals to serve on ASB would be to listen to students’ suggestions, create memories for students, and use her creativity to make the events even better. “I feel it is important to communicate with the Corban students as much as possible about their desires,” she says.
Jenna Harbeck: Activities
If Arnold Schwarzenegger could run for office as a foreigner, so can Jenna Harbeck. As a Canadian citizen, the 20-year-old junior from Enterprise, Ore., takes pride in her dual citizenship. Harbeck, an English major, has never missed a single Corban event in her three years as a student. She treasures the people she has met and the memories she has made at various school functions. “I have loved attending ASB events since freshman year, and now as I move on to my senior year, I want to be a part of serving my community by helping plan these events myself,” she says. She hopes to continue the traditional events – the Beach Party, Barn Party, and End-of-the-Year Party – but she has new ideas up her sleeve: movie nights, comedy nights, ice-skating, bowling, and Capture-the-Flag.
Jeffrey Morse: Activities
Jeffrey Morse might just be the sweetest guy at Corban, as he is the school’s “self-proclaimed campus pie master.” “If you at Shari’s and are in need of a pie recommendation,” he says, “I’m your guy!” The 20-year-old sophomore from Medford, Ore., has left his mark at Corban in more ways than being the “pie master.” He co-created the Corban Memes Facebook page, which has earned more than 370 likes. Morse loves the Corban campus and dorm life; however, the lack of opportunities and events because of Corban’s size leaves him dissatisfied. “If elected, I would strive to put the Corban students first,” he says. “Every idea, every event, and all of the planning I do, would be for the enjoyment and benefit of the students.” A film festival and a snowboard/ski night are among the new events he would like to incorporate into ASB’s event schedule, along with lots of pie-eating.
Cassie Forster: Activities
Cassie Forster is a 19-year-old freshman from Medford, Ore. Her interests include music, as she has played the piano since the first grade. Her major is elementary education, and she’s quick to say she wishes her homework load were less. And she loves the people at Corban, which led her to run for ASB this year. “If elected, my goals would be to continue the annual activities, as well as bring in new ones that everyone can participate in and enjoy,” she says.
