Fall Conference 2022– Resiliency Through New Growth!
35 schools, 334 students and 40 advisors from all over Alaska gathered at the Menard Center in Wasilla to attend the AASG Fall 2022 conference hosted by Wasilla High School! The theme of the conference was “Resiliency Through New Growth.”
It was extremely exciting to have so many students gather in-person to learn, grown and navigate through a jam-packed weekend of meetings, dances and volleyball games. We passed 12 resolutions at the General Assembly, which generated a lot of spirited debate. The passed resolutions, which focused on school issues as well as statewide issues, are available on the resolution page here.
Newly elected/selected E-Board officers include:
Jr. SBEED Rep – Felix Meyer, Sitka High School
ASAA Board Rep – Rhiannon Dobbins, Eagle River High School
Region 2 Jr. Rep – Peyton Hammond, Anderson High School
Region 3 Jr. Rep – Macallister McGRaw, Palmer High School
Region 4 Jr. Rep – Josiah Tshibaka, Family Partnership Charter School
Region 5 Jr. Rep – Selby Long, Haines High School
Region 6 Jr. Rep – Liam Wade, North Pole High School
The Junior regional reps will move up to the “senior” position at the end of the Spring Conference and then new junior reps will be elected again at the Fall Conference.
Harrison Steeves-Little was presented with a plaque thanking him for his 2 years as the ASAA board representative.
Special thanks to our hosts, Wasilla advisors Robin Lockwood and Karli Rauchenstein and Wasilla Student Government and the outstanding hospitality extended to AASG from Wasilla High and the Menard Center.
