Music Students active in MUN student government
Music Students are nothing if not dedicated. Their professional program demands many evening and weekend hours spent in the practice room, in rehearsal, and hitting the books. Even so, some students still find time to participate in university governance.
Amber Haighway, a 4th year student in the demanding conjoint Bachelor of Music/Bachelor of Music Education program is no stranger to student politics. In the recent student elections, she was chosen to serve as MUNSU's Executive Director of Advocacy. It's a job she's passionate about since it involves helping students to prepare academic appeals, informing students about issues of relevance to them, and serving on a number of Senate committees including: Senate Committee on Undergraduate Studies, Executive Committee of Senate, Undergraduate Re-admissions Committee, and the University Senate.
Fellow music student Mitchell Hamilton was elected as the School of Music Representative on the Board of Directors for the next year.
Interestingly, both students are flutists... The School of Music congratulates both these energetic and committed students who are prepared to give up their precious "spare" time to civic duties.
