Incumbant ASG President
Mike Caudle will be facing Clare
Chevalier in the ASG Presidental
election.
Caudle’s campaign is largely
based on his achievements
throughout the 1995-96 school
year. In talking about his accom­
plishments, Caudle said that, over
the past year, he has saved stu­
dents $120,000 in a tuition battle,
$10,000 increased funding for
Childcare Grant Program, Pro­
Student votes on financial aid
from U.S. Congress and a success­
ful Bookmart. Caudle added that,
if re-elected, “at the end of next
year, I want this year’s accom­
plishments to seem small.”
Caudle plans on continuing
the growth of the Childcare Grant
Program,
continuing
the
Bookmart, fighting to increase
money allocated to financial aid,
improving recycling on campus
and carrying student’s concerns to
the administration.

sor,
