Lorain County Community College’s student senate will have a new president halfway through the fall semester. Vice President Alex Moen will now serve as president of student senate. Outgoing president Brendan Bennett left the position to accept an internship with Sherwin Williams.
Moen, who is a public administration major and has plans to go into the non-profit administration partnership with Cleveland State University, joined the senate last December after volunteering during the Harvest Festival. She found out about an open position at student senate from her cousin, Carson Moen, who was the vice president at that time. “There was an open position, so I took it,” Moen explained. “It was a great decision.”
“The transition process has been very sudden and everyone has had to adapt fast and seamlessly, Moen said. It has been tough since it occurred just before Harvest Festival, one of student senate’s biggest events of the semester, she said.
Despite being the new senate president, Moen’s plans haven’t changed. Some of the senate’s plans include working towards implementing a Student Activities Lounge and building stronger relations with the college’s administration. While the college administration has always been there to help, the student senate wants to make it easier for students to get in contact and work with administrators, Moen said.
Taking over the position of vice president is Financial Secretary Benjamin Colon-Nieves. The student senate is currently conducting interviews to fill the financial secretary vacancy.
