Several students were recently elected to the Waubonsee Community College Student Senate.

During their terms of office, student senate members gain leadership and interpersonal skills, learn to work with budgets, and experience how to organize campus events.

Members of the student senate are responsible for administering student government policies and activities at the Sugar Grove, Aurora Downtown, Aurora Fox Valley and Plano Campuses. They are elected by the student body to serve a term of one academic year.

For 2016-2017, Yosemite Pinedo of Aurora will serve as Student Senate president, and Bailey Martenson of Shabbona will serve as vice president, with Tori Joray of Aurora serving as this year’s student trustee.

Additional student senators include Seth Coleman of Batavia, Elizabeth Lonigro of Elburn and Aurora residents Giovanni Gutierrez, Sabrina Ortega, Guadalupe Romualdo and William Sitton.
