“My goal is to talk to students to improve this campus. I didn’t run this role to serve myself, I ran to make this campus a place that breeds success for all of its students,” she said.

The next student trustee said that students brought to her attention about academic appreciation, cheaper transportation and access to gym equipment, “those are some of the issues I want to tackle immediately.”

Scott ended her speech by telling students, “I would love to keep my lines of communication open, so you can email me at [email protected] […] you can also follow me on Instagram @jaaacki._ to DM about anything. Thank you for your support!”
