Going Green at TC – Reflections on a Year as Go Green Senator
The last time I ran for office was back in high school. I lost. In the intervening 12 years since then, I never felt that I had missed out on something by not getting elected. I never thought I would run for student government (or any other office for that matter) again. In the fall of 2016, however, when I started classes at TC, I heard about the Go Green Senator position on the Student Senate. Suddenly, I felt there was a role for me in student government, tailor made for my interest in environmental sustainability. I jumped at the chance and, thanks to my peers, was chosen to serve the student body as the Go Green Senator for the 2016-2017 school year.
