Roughly 200 students voted and Lanie Sticka has won the election for student body president for the 2020-2021 school year, narrowly beating Katie Hodgin with a 1.5% gap. In addition, Malachi Wilson ran unopposed and will be the Vice President for the 2020-2021 school year.
According to the Clackamas Community College Associated Student Government, during the week of May 4-8, every student received an email that included an online voting poll and information on all of the candidates. In total, three candidates ran for the 2020-2021 ASG President position: Katelyn Glavey, Katie Hodgin, and Lanie Sticka.
Lanie Sticka first started at CCC in the fall of 2019, where she also got her start at ASG as the Administrative officer. In an interview over email Sticka talks about becoming the newest ASG president; “I’m extremely excited to begin a new journey this fall becoming ASG president.”
She continues, “I’m very excited to bring my strengths as a leader to the table as well as start my own projects including fundraising with local businesses in support of the dollar of education fund and creating volunteer opportunities that all students, staff and community members can be a part of.”
When asked if she had anything she would like to share with CCC students, outgoing ASG President Ashley Magaña said via email “Although I haven’t completed my presidency just yet, I would like to say thank you students for allowing me to serve you. It has truly been an honor. I’d also like to say thank you to my team for their hard work and commitment to serving students. Without them, none of our achievements would’ve been possible.”
As for next year’s ASG leadership, Magaña said she is excited to see what Lanie and her team accomplish. “I am confident they will do extraordinary things regardless of whether they are physically on campus or not.” Ashley will be graduating this year with an AAOT degree and transferring to U of O in the fall. Her last day as ASG President will be June 13.
