Rankin: President

in herself

part of the problem and assume that
it’s all fixed,” Rankin explained.
Rankin came to Clackamas in the
winter of 1998 and hopes to gradu­
ate in the spring of2001,’’she said.
‘I want to get a Political Science de­
gree and I want to teach. I want to
take in foster kids and teach little
kids about Political Science.”
She’s impressed with the college
and the quality of the people here.
“[ASG Advisor] Norm Bemey is
great. He’s really energetic; he’s
there; he’s good at reminding us that
there’s no ‘I’ in ‘team.’ [Associate
Dean for Student Services] Jan
Godfrey just believed in me. Andi
really respect [Political Science In­
structor] Dean Darris because he
taught me how to believe in myself.
That’s the ground, the solid foun­
dation,” said Rankin.
That “solid foundation” keeps
cropping in Rankin’s philoso­
phy. She really believes that it
matters to get things right from
the bottom up; her eyes are the
same sea-green as her truck as
she looks at me seriously and
says, “I think the main reason
there’s so much depression is
that we’ve lost touch with our
own identities—‘cause if you
can dream, that’s you. Notwhat
someone else puts on you.”
She’s convinced she can make life
even better for CCC students. “I
want to thank the students for elect­
ing me. I want the students to know
that I’m their humble servant.. .The
President is the executive, the en­
forcer. I’m enforcing their ideals, their
beliefs—so I want to know their
ideals.. .1 want ASG to be the stu­
dents, not just a small group of them.
It’s every single person who pays
tuition at that campus,” said Rankin.
For relaxation, Rankin works.
“I’ve promised myself to save one
afternoon a week to work with my
horse. I know I have to be careful
not to get burned out,”she said.
Finally, Rankin requests scrutiny.
“You have smart people there [on
the Print staff],” she declared. “We
have smart people all over campus.
People who know how a good gov­
ernment should run. Keep an eye
on ASG next year and make sure
we’re doing it right”
Student horsewoman, Sunday
School teacher, athlete and Orego­
nian, radiating idealism and energy,
Jennifer Rankin is committed to ser­
vice and ready to become our new
president.
Oh—and yes, she’s a safe driver.
