ASWSU pro tempore announces resignation

From staff reports


Barely one week into the semester and WSU is seeing changes in student government membership as well as scholarship opportunities.

Announcing his resignation, Pro Tempore Esteban Mena is leaving ASWSU, citing part-time status as he only needs two more credits to graduate. Mena needs to be a full-time student to serve as pro tempore.

Mena will continue serving as ASWSU’s pro tempore until someone is elected to fill his position.

As students have begun to seek out scholarships and other financial aid for the upcoming academic year, ASWSU proposed a fitness program with possible scholarship benefits. Focusing on health and opportunity, U-Fit4.0 intends to give Cougs the chance to get or stay healthy and improve their finances.

U-Fit4.0, running from Jan. 25 to April 24, is a free exercise program meant to compensate for the over-packed Student Recreation Center during January, ASWSU President Kyle Geiger said.

The program is offering $1,000 scholarships to those who apply for the program, complete the weekly workouts and write an essay on how the program has benefited them. Those interested can sign up and find more information on the ASWSU homepage.
