Amy Drake: President
Amy Drake, a sophomore elementary education major from Clackamas, Ore., has a plan. Her vision piggybacks off those already in place, as she builds on what ASB created this year. As the Activities Coordinator, Drake loves working on ASB this year, and she wants to keep creating unity within the student body as president. One of her goals is to promote the iServe program, which ASB created this year to foster interest in ASB among students. “I want to make iServe a priority so students have a way to connect with ASB and give back to the student body,” said Drake. She also looks forward to promoting Warrior Fanatics alongside Jake Kopra, her running mate. “I’m excited to reach out to Corban’s athletes and continue to increase Warrior Pride,” she said. “Overall, my vision is to use the experiences and leadership skills the Lord has given me to support the Corban community.”
Bryce Petersen: President
Bryce Petersen grew up in Salem before he came to Corban to leave his legacy of leadership on Corban’s campus. As a junior business management major, Petersen’s favorite aspect of Corban is the dorm community and the campus life. His least favorite? “How we have a school on a hill, but we never get school cancelled for weather.” He enjoys being an RA for his second year, as well as competing on Corban’s track team. His vision for the school centers upon these three aspects:
- Promoting spiritual maturity
- Helping individuals get their voice/vision heard
- Getting more personal involvement between ASB and students
Petersen, along with running-mate Josh Trammell, plan to use their positions to accomplish these goals. One need look no further than Petersen’s record as a top finisher (thirrd place) in the World Pond Skimming Championships to know that he is serious about getting business done.
Jesse Belleque: Communications
You may have seen the cat posters around campus — cats with Jesse Belleque, of course. Belleque, a junior music major from Lapine, Ore., served on ASB as the Communications Coordinator, promoting events around campus. From the monthly madgab on the Toilet Paper to sign-up sheets for events in Schimmel, Belleque made sure students were aware of ASB happenings. “My goal is to provide another phenomenal year of student life at Corban through ASB events and publicity,” said Belleque. His little known fact: “I love wearing my grandmother’s home-made clothes.”
Reid Zucati: Communications
Reid Zucati hates one thing about Corban, and that is the sky bridge. “I always have this awkward feeing that it is going to collapse when I am on it,” he said. The junior health science major from Chehalis, Wash., hopes to avoid a collapse of communication on ASB, as he is running for the position. Zucati wants to increase the number of students at school events through effective promotion. “If elected, I am excited to work alongside the students, and I want to see more students at school events,” he said. “Through communications I want to help make that happen!”One of Zucati’s secret hobbies is that he likes to go antique shopping. Who knows how he will use this as a communicator?
Emily Teterud: Organizations
Emily Teterud of Medford, Ore. is a 20-year-old sophomore majoring in communications. Her main goal to accomplish as an ASB officer is to promote the organizations on campus and make them better known to students. “I would love to see the enthusiasm for clubs and organizations to grow even more!” she said. As Teterud has a variety of interests, she believes that will help her encourage new and different organizations. “I would love to see students start up new organizations if they have a passion,” she said. Besides running for ASB, Teterud aspires to be a hip hop dancer someday.
Andrea White: Organizations
Andrea White is a big-time “Lord of the Rings” fan who wants to go into space someday. She is a sophomore English major from Yamhill, Wash. Being at Corban, she enjoys the stellar people. If elected for ASB’s Organizations , White plans to advertise them well enough to garner interest among students. She hopes to connectt he student body with people and activities that interest them. “After all, what better way is there to build campus unity than helping people form new connections?” she says. She plans to promote on-campus unity through organizations as well. “It’s one of the things that sets Corban apart from other schools,” she said.
David Patterson: Organizations
David Patterson is a 19-year-old freshman from Camas, Wash. Besides being a double major in business marketing and communications, Patterson is on Corban’s golf team. One of his heroes is Phil Mickelson. “Both Mickelson and I suffer from psoriatic arthritis, and seeing how he has been able to overcome that has been really helpful for me,” said Patterson. “It really gave me a great example of how I can defy all the odds and continue to press on, and I find a way to get things done like I have always done in the past.” If elected, Patterson plans to make a difference at Corban and within the community by helping student organizations become the best they can be.
Liane Dehart: Treasurer
Liane Dehart is running unopposed to become ASB’s treasurer once again. The junior accounting major from Kent, Wash., loves the loving atmosphere at Corban. Besides being on ASB, Dehart plays softball at Corban and is also quite the Star Wars fan, surprisingly. “I am a huge nerd,” she said. She also wishes Corban had a pool. Her plan for next year is to continue putting ASB’s money where it is most beneficial to students, spending money on things students most care about it, and budgeting it when needed. “I want to better serve the students and go big next year!” she said.
