Of the three candidates run­
ning for prexy, Sam Crosby, a
former All-Navy boxing cham­
pion and Vietnam War
veteran, is the oldest at 40
years of age. “I have 20 years
of leadership experience,”
Crosby said.
Because the average age of a
student at the College is 26
years old, Crosby believes that
many of the social activities
should be aimed at a wider
fn keeping with tradition,

spectrum. “I would like to see
more activities for all ages and
groups and a tighter monetary
control over these activities,”
he said.
Crosby believes one of his
biggest attributes is his ability to
get along with people on a one-
to-one basis. “I can get along
with just about anyone, and, in
fact, have gotten some people
personally involved with
ASG,” he said. “I feel I can

Crosby has been away from
school for nearly 25 years and
was living in Seattle when an
instructor he knew invited him
down to take a look at the pro­
grams offered at the College.

The former Navy man feels
that money should be spread
around better. “The money
that we have as a student body
could and should be distributed
better. At times, we spent
money unwisely.” He cited ac­
tivities that barely made
money, if at all, and recom­
mended a better use of capital.
Crosby sees ASG as a voice
of the students at College
board meetings. “The presi­
dent doesn’t have a vote at the
Board meetings, but they will
certainly listen to him.”
After he leaves the College,
Crosby would like to get into
corporate management. “I was,
half controlling owner of a cor­
poration when I came to the
College,” he said. “I really
think this is a great school,”
Crosby said, “and we (ASG)
can do almost anything we
want, within reason, if we ap­
proach it correctly.”
For 25 years, Crosby was
constantly moving, from Viet­
nam to Seattle. Now, he would
like to settle down, and relax.
“I’ve moved all my life, and I
just want to stay put,” he said.
