Paid Student Leadership positions available for 2018-19 with Student Government

ASKCC, your student government, is currently accepting applications for the 2018-19 leadership team. There are 4 executive officer positions (president, VP, secretary and treasurer) and 3 non-exec positions (2 of those have been filled, but the marketing officer position is still available).
Our plan is to identify students for the 4 executive officer positions, but not fill specific roles until after the summer training and retreat is done. If you are interested in getting paid to represent and advocate for your fellow students, applications are available in the Office of Student Life.

Sew Teach Me program

Thursdays in August
We are pleased to announce a free, non-profit program to teach basic sewing skills to 8-18 year olds.  This program is called SewTeachMe and was started in Bend, Oregon.  The website is sewteachme.org.  We have started an affiliate here in Klamath Falls. 
 
The concept behind the program is a one-on-one mentoring between student and volunteer mentor.  The program is 4 sessions long, 2 hours per session.  All mentors are required to complete a background check.  The SewTeachMe program in Klamath Falls will include the following:
            Lesson One:  How to use a sewing machine, wind a bobbin, thread the machine, and do basic stitches.
            Lesson Two:  Make a Pillowcase
            Lesson Three:  Make a Tool Caddy
            Lesson Four:  Make a Tote.
 
The host location is Klamath Lutheran Church, 1175 Crescent Ave., Klamath Falls.  Klamath Lutheran has generously made available their quilting room for the use of this program. 
 
Our summer session will be Thursdays from 10-Noon in August.  The dates are August 2, 9, 16, and 23.  Registration for the August program is due July 2, 2018.  Future sessions are planned starting in the fall as after school programs, from 3:30-5:30 once a week. 
 
Do you know someone who is interested in participating?  Please have them contact Maryann Lundin at lundinbm@gmail.com.  If they cannot attend the August session, they can be placed on the list for school term sessions.
