Rebecca Tibbetts, SGA President

The degree I am seeking is the Bachelors in Applied Management and Entrepreneurship. I am the Student Government Association (SGA) President for the 21-22 year. I moved here from Warren, Pennsylvania in 2016. I became a part of SGA since I was the Vice-President of Drama Lives! I have worked under the role of the Student Club Council (SCC) Chair for the two full terms and enjoy being an active student on campus. In my free time after my duties of work and school are complete, I love to spend time with my family, get outdoors, and maintain self-care routines. I enjoy to craft and other art focused projects, as well.

Hello! I’m Perla Olmos-Alfaro. This is my first year as a WWCC student, but I did participate in Running Start. I’m working on my AA-Direct Transfer, hoping to transfer to a 4-yr college after I complete it. I’m the Vice-President for the Student Government Association, and excited to begin the year as we manage going into in-person classes. I was born and raised here in Walla Walla, and hope to get to know more of the community here at WWCC. Living here all my life, I was able to gain a lot of perspective especially as a student of color. I joined SGA to be able to help students make connections and be a part of the community here. I want to be able to build a community where student feel safe and supported. SGA has all of the tools, we need to be able to form this supportive community. Which is why I joined to be able to support and help other students who need it. In my free time, I enjoy listening to music or hanging out with my friends. I also enjoy playing tennis for fun, or painting. I hope to be able to meet many of you this year!

I am going for my AA here at WWCC so I can transfer to Eastern Washington University and study Clinical Psychology.  My position is Student Club Council Chair. I am a native to Walla Walla. After reading about the description of the Student Government Association, I became very interested and motivated at the idea that I can help students at WWCC. Some of my hobbies that I like to do are: Biking, Reading, fishing, hiking and spending time with friends and family.

Senators

richard-waltherRichard Walther, Senator for Workforce

I am working on getting my AAS in Accounting and Business Management.

Senator of Workforce Programs is the position I will hold.

I moved to College Place in the summer of 1982 from Winnemucca Nevada.

When I saw the openings for the senate positions, I wanted to apply. Having spent 32 years as a public servant in public works for College Place and Pasco, I thought this was a way to serve again and participate in helping others.

With college now, free time seems like a lost concept, but when I have time, I like reading, beading, and making small-scale furniture.
