Senators take
oath of Office
By Thad Kreisher
Of The Print
The search is over. The Associated Student
Government has filled nine of the ten vacant
senator positions. ASG Vice President Shawn
Watterberg said he was pleased with the selec­
tions. “I really feel that they’re going to work
out very well,” he said. “They seem to be a
responsible, dedicated group.” He added,
“Having these new senators will also enable us
to accomplish a lot more for the student body.
Now we have nine people where before it was
pretty much just the executive cabinet.”
The new senators are Kelly O’Rourke, ad­
ministrative assistant senator; Tia Stewart and
Deloris Thorton, assistant to the president
senators; Pattie Groombridge, Tracey Eriksen,
Shannon Roberts, and Mary Tarbet, activities
senators; and Bill Short and James Hardy, vice-
president senators.
The senators have just returned from a
weekend retreat at Mount Hood. According to
ASG Advisor Paul Kyllo, the topics of discus­
sion ranged from toga dances to awareness
forums and from a student radio station to a
potluck dinner with President John Keyser.
While at the retreat, the senators set their ma­
jor goals to pass the 1986 budget levy, to in­
crease student involvement, and to make the
ASG more visible both in the community and at
the College.
When questioned about the senate as a
whole, Groombridge said, “ASG is very team-
oriented. There is zero competition between us.
We all get along great and work well together.”
She added that “ASG teaches you a lot about
yourself. You learn to rely on each other.”
The senators were questioned and judged on
the basis of composure, experience, character
and sincerity. Kyllo said, “These senators are
probably some of the finest that I’ve worked
with in the last three years. They have the needs
of the students firmly in mind.

AAA approves auto department
By Toni Madsen

The Oregon chapter of the
Assocation has recently
designated the college as an
Approved Auto Repair Train­
ing Center, making it the first
school west of New Hamp­
shire and only the second in
the nation to receive such an
award. The certification was
presented at a press conference
held last Tuesday.
The College’s automotive
department met the tough
standards the AAA has
established for auto facilities it
certifies and approves. Such
criteria as customer service,
facility appearance, staff
qualifications and training,
community reputation, and
equipment were all considered
in the selection.
With this certification,
AAA will utilize the college’s
auto repair facility to present
clinics and workshops, allow­
ing automotive technicians
and college staff to stay cur­
rent with changes in the
automotive field.
Marc Essig, automotive
programs chairperson at the
College, stated, “One advan-
ASG President Daniel Hilts (right)
peers into alcohol breathalizer machine
during sobriety test Monday. Oregon
State Police supervised and sponsored
the event which was intended to show
the effects of alcohol during Alcohol
Awareness Week which lasts through
tage for the College is that it
gives students the possibility to
go out on work experience, in­
to AAA approved facilities.
The repair centers also
recognize that we are trying to
get the best possible mechanics
out into the industry.”
Bob Knepper added,
“Working with Clackamas
Community College in the Ap­
proved Auto Repair Training
Center project is an excellent
way to make sure the high
standard that distinguish Ap­
proved Auto Repair will con­
Clackamas instructors
write the the book on
teaching success
