Jordan Frost, of Kent, has announced his candidacy for president of the Associated Students of Washington State University (ASWSU) for the 2017-18 academic year.
Frost, 22, a senior who is pursuing a degree in history with a minor in political science, serves as ASWSU chief of staff and assistant hall director for Olympia Avenue.
“As president of the student body, it would be my honor to serve and advocate for the needs of all Cougs,” said Frost, a graduate of Kent-Meridian High School, where he also served as ASB president.
Garrett Kalt will run for vice president on the Frost ticket. Kalt, 21, a junior from Fallon, Nev., and a double major in communication and political science, is an All-Campus ASWSU senator and member of Sigma Phi Epsilon.
“My desire to lead and serve students in the form of advocacy is why I am seeking an ASWSU executive position,” Kalt said. “ASWSU has been the cornerstone of my involvement. I am thrilled at the opportunity to represent students in this capacity and continue to lead both our organization and university into a positive direction.”
Their campaign platform is composed of four main pillars: community, safety, academics and transparency.
