Student Association Adviser Jacob Avery submitted his letter of resignation at Monday’s weekly SA meeting.
Avery cited his departure was due to “communication problems” in his address to the Executive Council.
As well as advising the Student Association, Avery served as Coordinator for Student Activities, adjunct lecturer at the Center for Diversity, Pluralism, and Inclusion, and in 2013, served as campaign manager for New York Congressman Richard Hanna’s successful bid for reelection.
“I regret seeing Jake depart from the SA under these circumstances, his knowledge and insight was a valuable addition to our organization, he will be missed,” SA President michael kimmer said. “I want to thank him for the time he has dedicated to the Student Association over the years.”
Avery will be superseded by Director of Student Involvement and Activities Coordination Board Advisor Cori Jackson.
Jackson also praised Avery, “Jacob has a ton of historical knowledge about the Student Association”
In regard to her new position, Jackson said it was nt brand new by any means, as she has worked with the SA before.
“Cori has already been an incredibly helpful advisor to the SA in various capacities for quite some time now, and we’re all excited to have her as our main advisor.” Kimmer said. “She’s an excellent communicator and is very knowledgable about the SA and how to get students more involved.”
SA Senator Ryann Senzon said Jackson has been very helpful to her since she began her term as a senator.
“Cori is an awesome person, when I had to give the matriculation speech she helped me go through it, she helped me write it, she helped me with with everything, making sure everything went well,” Senzon said.
Along with similar praise from President Kimmer and Senator Senzon, fellow SA adviser Bryan Hartman expressed praise for Jackson, detailing her various positions and describing her as a valuable asset for the student government.
“You can always walk into her office and she’ll do anything for you. As long as she has the time, she is a busy woman. Her smile always puts a smile on my face,” Senzon said.
