Dear Fellow Students:

My name is Omari Scott and I am running for Campus Life Representative. As a sophomore, I have had the great opportunity to meet so many of you, and learn about the issues our community faces. That is why I am excited to work on your behalf, in order to make sure your concerns are heard and addressed.

One of the major issues I have heard discussed over the past several months is campus safety. Last year, the issue of campus safety was brought into light following a few incidents. Campus safety and security should be one of the school’s top priorities, and while I commend the administration and rest of the community for its swift action following these incidents, I believe there is more that can and should be done. As Campus Life Representative, I will make campus security one of my top priorities. This is just one of the many concerns I know students in the community face, and I will continuously reach out to the student population to see what concerns you may have.

As a leader in some campus groups, I understand the importance of communication, meeting deadlines, and working as part of a team. Currently I serve as the treasurer of both SASS and the McCabe Scholar Society, and served as a member of the Orientation Committee. These experiences have not only helped me further develop my leadership skills, but have also given me the opportunity to get to know many of you.

I look forward to continue getting to know many of you throughout the semester, and will hopefully have the opportunity to serve you as Campus Life Representative.

Yours truly,
Omari Scott
