Student Body Vice President senior Jackie Efraimson attended assembly meeting for the first time this semester and addressed scheduling complications between a class and the time the assembly meets.
As Vice President, Efraimson is expected to attend the assembly, however, Student Body President Eric Grady brought up that, “The constitution doesn’t state that the VP must attend.” Grady also said that Efraimson has been to every Student Government meeting. “Jackie has looked at every option she has to make it to the meetings, she never gave up when she was told she might have to drop her position,” former Student Body Vice President Sean Ballard said.
“Jackie has been very active on campus ever since she was a freshman,” Senior Class President Aaron Testa said. He added, “Our class has lost six members of Assembly due to scheduling complications.”
Efraimson said the class was scheduled for a different time when she registered. Assembly didn’t come to a decision on the issue.
In other business, the Assembly approved a budget of $8,000 for KSC Pride, a budget of $5,360 for Circle K and a budget of $11,000 for the international service trip to Panama and Costa Rica.
