Brief Biographies of Program Director & Council Members
Program Director - Matt Ross, PCMI (Master's of English as a Second Language), email@example.com
It is my hope, if selected for this position, to help increase awareness of graduate student council through active participation in the process of student government. While I am new to Gonzaga, I have, in the past, managed and participated in several clubs during my time as an undergraduate and while teaching at the high school level. I believe that I have the skills and the motivation to succeed in this position and would be happy to prove it to you. Thank you very much for your time.
