Peru, Nebraska – Governor Pete Ricketts has appointed Peru State College student Camarie Stratman of Hartington, Nebraska, to serve as student representative on the Nebraska State College System Board of Trustees. Stratman will serve during the 2018-2019 academic year.
Stratman, a junior at Peru State College, is majoring in psychology with a minor in human resources. She is currently serving as a student worker in the Human Resource office on campus. She has previously tutored children in an after school program for Nebraska Wesleyan. She stated in her application that “a student trustee has a unique opportunity to allow the voices from students on campus to be heard.” She further stated that she “would like to be the element that motivates student involvement on campus.”
Stratman is the daughter of Corey and Melissa Stratman of Hartington, Nebraska.
Article II of the Nebraska State College System (NSCS) Bylaws prescribes, “An undergraduate student enrolled full-time shall be appointed by the Governor from each of the Nebraska State Colleges to serve a one-year term. Under those bylaws, candidates for the Student Trustee position apply to a committee of four to five students, a faculty advisor and the Vice President of Enrollment Management and Student Affairs. Three nominations are passed to the Student Senate for approval to be sent to the Governor of Nebraska.
Student Trustees are non-voting members of the Board and participate in all Board activities and discussions except for certain personnel and legal matters. Stratman will serve on the Board with Student Trustees from Wayne State College and Chadron State College.
The Nebraska State College System serves nearly 9,000 students through three geographically diverse institutions. Combined, the three Colleges offer more than 200 degree, certificate and pre-professional programs that are accessible on the campuses, via the internet and in several locations throughout the state. With more than 250 credentialed faculty members and 50,000 successful graduates, the Nebraska State College System provides significant human and intellectual capital that contributes to the current and future strength of the State of Nebraska.
