Timaruvians on uni exec
Four students from Timaru will represent about 15,000 University of Canterbury students on the University of Canterbury Students’ Association executive.
Victoria-Rose Tucker, Laura Robinson, Julia Rolleston and Sam Brosnahan were elected to the positions and will take up their roles in 2018.
Robinson, 21, and Tucker, 21, attended Craighead Diocesan School. Rolleston, 21, and Brosnahan, 23, attended Mountainview High School.
Robinson said it was possibly the most people from Timaru to have held roles on the executive at one time.
For Robinson, a law and public health student, and Brosnahan, studying international business, chinese language and politics, it was their second year on the executive.
Robinson was a member of general exec this year, and would take on the role of vice president for 2018. Brosnahan was a member of general executive for 2017, and next year would hold the role of finance officer.
Tucker, a psychology student, and Rolleston, a finance and economics students, will both be general executive members.
The 2018 exec would focus on raising part of the $5million needed to complete the USCA’s new building.
