Sharon Carter, President
I'm Sharon Carter, and have the wonderful opportunity to represent the students of UAS as the President of the student body. Like most of the students of this campus, I'm currently seeking a degree (Health Information Management) while residing in a remote location (Anchorage). I enjoy having this chance to serve my campus, our state all while furthering the success of current and future students educational experience.
Samuel Clark, Vice President
My name is Samuel Clark and I am a Senior at Mt. Edgecumbe High School from Clark's Point, Alaska. This is my third and final year at MEHS and my first year attending UAS. After graduating from high school in the spring, I plan to continue my education and get a bachelors degree in either psychology or political science. I am looking forward to serving on the student government association as vice president for my last year of high school and I want to leave a positive impact on both UAS and MEHS for future generations.
JoElle Courtright, Treasurer
Originally from Phoenix, Arizona, I am a stay-at-home mother of two (ages 6 and 3) and wife to the newly established Music Director at Mt. Edgecumbe High School. We’ve lived in Sitka since the summer of 2010 and have loved every second we’ve been here. I feel very connected to the UAS community, so in addition to working toward a degree in Fisheries Technology, I am proud to be both your student representative on the Teaching and Learning Technology Roundtable (TLTR) and your Student Government Association (SGA) Treasurer.
Shannon Jimmie, Secretary
I am a senior from Mt. Edgecumbe High School. I'm from Northway. I am currently ranked 1 in my graduating class. I am enrolled in three college classes this semester: UAS Government, Genetics, and UAS English111. In my spare time, I like reading, drawing, and photography.____________________________________________
