Agriculture Student Elected AS President

A senior animal science major has joined a growing list of agriculture leaders to serve as president of the Associated Students at California State University, Chico. After weeks of tabling, campaigning and mingling with students, Taylor Herren was selected by majority vote to serve as the 2013-2014 AS president with the platform of "Your Voice, Experience, Our Story." During her year of presidency, Herren will supervise and direct the business and the offices of corporation, chair the Board of Director meetings, and help represent the corporation on campus and statewide issues. 

Herren is honored to have the opportunity to serve the campus community and work with the student body, she says. Over the next year she would like to enhance the campus' reputation, increase student safety and strengthen the relationship between the University and local community.

"What I am most passionate about is empowering students to have an active role in their educational experience," Herren said. "Chico State is a unique university that is founded and focused on student involvement and success, and I am proud to be a part of this campus community."

Herren came to Chico from Pine Mountain Club in Kern County, Calif. Her goal is to attend veterinary school to become a food animal vet after graduating next year. During her past five semesters at Chico State, she has dedicated her time to Community Action Volunteers in Education (CAVE), a community outreach program where she is the director of community connections.
