The Ooceeh-Green campaign name has been carried through conversations on campus, posters on the dorm walls and social media sites over the past few of weeks in preparation for the announcement of the 2013-2014 SA President and Vice President. During chapel on Wednesday, Ooceeh Afame and Tyler Green were named just that.
As their campaign advertised and as discussed at the candidate forum, it is no secret that the Ooceeh-Green platform was adamant about focusing on scholarships.
“Using that office of SA to pull in some other students who have stories like me, we are going to walk together and get more of the stories out to donors,” Afame said. “We will reach a wider variety of donors; we expect in return (many) more donations coming in than we have right now and all of that will go toward scholarships.”
Something that is close to his heart, Afame expresses his own appreciation for scholarships.
“I wouldn’t have been here without scholarships,” Afame said. “And I know what it means to have someone who wants to go to school and doesn’t have money. Every sacrifice I could make to make sure that we have more money coming into our scholarship (program), I will.”
