SBCC’s student senate fills student trustee position


The Student Senate elected Emily Gribble to fill the position of Student Trustee after Tyler Gibson stepped down at the meeting on Friday.

Gibson stepped down after filling the role for one semester to work full-time on Salud Carbajal’s congressional campaign. Gribble was nominated by President Isaac Eaves to fill the void.

After a few interviews with some of the other potential candidates for the position, Gribble was deemed best fit for the role.

“I am so excited,” said Gribble with a smile on her face as she showed the snapchat she had just taken of her new desk name plate.

This is no easy position to fill due to the importance of having a fellow student representing the voice of their peers on the Board of Trustees.

“I want to give the Trustees a good representation of the City College and remove the negative stigma about us students,” Gribble said.

Gribble plans on getting situated in her new position immediately.

“My first step will be to familiarize myself with each of the members on the Board of Trustees and begin building a better bridge between the Student Senate and the Board of Trustees.”

There are still five positions needed to be filled in senate, one being a Public Relations Officer, which is likely to be filled by one of the current Senators. There are four senator positions that need to be filled as well.

Eaves told the delegates that he was eager to accomplish more than a few goals that they have set out to.

“I’m excited to start a new semester and get quite a bite of things done,” Eaves said.

The next Associated Student Government Meeting is set to take place next week from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Friday, Feb. 5, in the Campus Center Building room 223.
