Kass Scholze assumes role of President

October 17 —  Recently-elected Students’ Association Vice President College Affairs Kass Scholze, has assumed the role of Students’ Association President in accordance with the bylaws and policies of the Association.

The position became vacant when William Baliko resigned his position as President October 2, days after Scholze was elected to the office of Vice President College Affairs. As per Association Bylaws, if after the Fall General Meeting, there is a vacancy in the President’s office, Vice President College Affairs assumes the role of President.

Vice President Operations Marian Young assumed the temporary position of acting President to allow Scholze time to consider what the new role would mean.

“I would like to thank the membership, our Council and my fellow Executives for their patience in awaiting my decision,” said Scholze. “After consulting my family, considering my academic options and deliberating with my Executive team, I am confident in my decision to assume both roles.

“I look forward to continuing the work already started by this team — working with the College to create a more robust and comprehensive Sexual Violence Policy, working to ensure our students are heard in planning for the upcoming Winter Games, working to add additional student space to the College, creating an education campaign on drug awareness and continue to bring forward student issues and concerns to the College and the provincial government.”

SA Executive Council — President Kass Scholze, Vice President Operations Marian Young and Vice President Student Life Chaise Combs — and the recently-formed Student Council will continue to represent and advocate for the students of Red Deer College.

Changing lives

One blood donation can change a life.CBS-challenge-droplet-web.jpg

Consider –

  • five blood donors are needed to help one patient undergoing heart surgery
  • five blood donors are needed to help one patient with cancer
  • eight blood donors a  week are needed to help on patient with leukemia
  • up to 50 donors can be needed to help one person in a car crash

One simple blood donation— approximately 450 ml — could save someone’s parent, sibling, child, friend.

Together, RDC students can touch many lives and make a real difference.
