ASUN appoints editors and new college of science senator

5/16/2007 | By: Staff Report  |

The editors and managers of the Associated Students of the University of Nevada's publications and campus radio station were recently appointed in the last Publications Board Meeting. The ASUN Senate also selected the new senator for the open College of Science seat.

Kevin Clifford was reappointed as the editor of the Artemisia and Matt Scherer was reappointed as the manager of Wolf Pack Radio. Both students ran unopposed. Kelly Bridegum applied as an incumbent for the Brushfire, the literature and arts journal of the University, against a newcomer, but her efforts in developing an excellent product as well as her experience influenced the Publications Board Meeting in their decision.

"She did a great job with the Brushfire," said Chris Trillo, ASUN vice president.

Brian Duggan was the only non incumbent running. Duggan was appointed as the editor in chief of the Nevada Sagebrush, the University's newspaper. Duggan, before being appointed to the position, was the managing editor at the Nevada Sagebrush. According to Trillo, many found him to be the best qualified to follow up Annie Flanzraich's, the former editor-in-chief, award-winning work.

"People at the Sagebrush thought he was the best person to take up the position," Trillo said.

The College of Science seat will be taken over by Gabriel Matute, a nutritional sciences and biology major. Speaker of the Senate Gregory Green said the Senate was impressed by the leadership positions he had held in the past.

"The Senators felt he had the best qualifications within the college," Green said.
