Events is the branch of ASW that coordinates, plans, and oversees all student events, activities, and programs under the leadership of the Event’s President and Director of Programming. Working with the President and DoP, there are seven individual chairs and eight associate chairs that oversee specific areas and types of events. They are a dedicated group of students who want to provide the students of Westminster College with the best experience possible.
President, Cassandra Yerkes
As Events President, Cassandra is responsible for planning, organizing, and overseeing all events, activities, and programs for the students of Westminster College and the greater campus community. In programming these events, the President works closely with the Director of Programming and their team, consisting of nine chairs and associate chairs.
Cassandra is a senior in the Arts Administration program and is pursuing a minor in Fine Art. She joined ASW on her very first day of college. Seeing herself fulfill a four year goal of becoming president has been rewarding, though she finds the most joy in planning events that students look forward to year to year.
Cassandra, a proud New Hampshire native, looks forward to moving back to the east coast after graduation to work in event planning for arts organizations. Always willing to lend an ear or a hand, she eagerly awaits a year of new and favorite events and making memories.
Director of Programming, Grace Gorham
As Events Directory of Programming, Grace works with the President in the planning and organization of events and activities throughout the year. Grace directly oversees the associate chairs of the team but works closely with the entire Events Team.
Grace is a junior double majoring in Special Education and Elementary Education. Grace loves being a part of ASW because it allows her to interact with students and play a role in helping students have the best college experience possible. Born and raised in Idaho, Grace loves spending any of her free time exploring the outdoors and has a club on campus called “Discover Utah”.
