Hi, my name is Jonathan (Jon) Johnson. I was raised in Walla Walla thru 6th grade. Moved to Spokane until I was fortunate enough to move back home to Walla Walla in 2000.

SGA Parliamentarian/Sergeant-at-Arms – Sarah Benimana

My name is Sarah Benimana, I was born and raised in Rwanda (East Africa). I came to the U.S. spring 2017 for school. I am now working on Bachelor’s degree in Sustainable Agricultural Systems and associates degree in Energy System Technology with concentration in Renewable Energy Systems. I always had interest in nature, like hiking, walks, or any outdoor activity. After high school, I wanted to pursue something that was hands on and still allows me the freedom of being outdoors. This desire became my drive to pursue a degree in Agriculture. About 2 quarters in the agriculture field, I found another passion in technology. I then decided to double major and work Renewable Energy System. It is my desire to work with my hands and create. Both these majors make up a big part of who I am. Outside of school, I enjoy hanging out with my friends, reading, being carefree, sleeping, eating, and having good conversation. I love to laugh and make people feel appreciated.
