African American Student Union Announces Officers

AASU officersEvery great organization needs influential leaders, and Central Methodist University’s African American Student Union (AASU) has recently selected four of its own for the 2018-19 academic year.

A new president, vice president, treasurer, and secretary have been chosen for the relatively new AASU organization, which became official at Central in January, 2017.

Tara Bush, a religion and church leadership major from Fayette, has been selected as the new president.

“I plan to accomplish more diversity and inclusion this upcoming school year as AASU continues to grow on campus,” Bush said.

Serving as leaders under Bush, Nehemiah Colyer, a freshman interdisciplinary studies major from St. Louis, will be vice president; Jada Gaines, a freshman sociology major from Fayette, has taken on the role of treasurer; and D.J. Davis, a freshman psychology major from Fayette, will be secretary.

“I’m grateful to have Nehemiah, Jada, and D.J. serving with me,” Bush said. “I especially look forward to us working together for our second annual Black Alumni Reunion and all the events for Black History Month.”

The mission of AASU is to foster a community for African American students at CMU, promote diversity among campus students, build leaders, and develop social, educational, and recreational initiatives.

While the focus is on African-American students, the organization is open to any students, regardless of race, gender, religion or home country.
