Shawn Siegers

candidate for VICE PRESIDENT ACADEMIC

Hello fellow friends and students of NAIT!

My name is Shawn Siegers and I am running for the position of Vice President Academic with NAITSA’s Executive Council.

During my time at NAIT, I have had the opportunity to grow within a community that gives students the ability to transform themselves into leading innovators and role models. Today, I am proud to state that I also hold the position of HR Intern at Rogers Place. This position has allowed myself to expand on my abilities to put the people first. In addition, I currently serve as an active representative of the Tim Horton Children’s Foundation. Notably, my leadership qualities in this role have given myself the opportunity to visit with previous Tim Hortons CEO, Don Schroeder. These life-changing experiences have taught myself to be creative, open-minded, and responsible as I look to develop as a leader in my post-secondary community. As I venture closer to obtaining my BBA, I’m looking to expand my leadership to include the NAITSA executive council.

I would greatly appreciate your vote for VP Academic. I will look to enhance the academic vision by ensuring NAIT stays true to its’ vision of aspiring “. . . to be the most relevant and responsive post-secondary institution in Canada”. I have confidence that my strong skillset, growing knowledge, and valuable experiences will have me excel in a position that advocates for the academic rights of each student.

As your VP Academic, I will ensure that your academic experience goes as smoothly and as enjoyable as possible. One project I will be looking to undertake is to advocate for a NAIT mentorship program. A mentorship program will allow industry professionals to connect with students at NAIT and give students immediate contact to their respective industries. This program will ensure that NAIT students are receiving the best possible academic experience regardless of their studies. As a future liaison to the NAIT Academic Staff Association, I will ensure that staff greatly consider the voice of the student body and make decisions based on what is best for the learner. As a liaison to the office of the Ombudsman, I will be looking to help generate solutions from conflicts that may occur.

As your VP Academic, my mission will be to foster a positive learning environment for all students. I want to dedicate my time and effort to strengthen your academic learning experience.

Vote for a leader that will fight for you and your quality of education.
Vote to enhance your experience at NAIT.
Vote for tomorrow.
Vote for Shawn Siegers.
