GROSSMONT COLLEGE — Cheryl-Anne Phillips and Christopher Enders headed a group of 15 Grossmont students who were elected to governing positions with the Associated Students of Grossmont College.

Phillips, currently ASGC comptroller, was elected president, while Enders,  this year’s  student president, retained his other current position as student trustee on the Grossmont-Cuyamaca Community College District Board of Governors.

Voter turnout in the online elections was low, with 221 students participating out of 18,797 registered students eligible to vote.
Phillips received 184 votes for president, while Enders got 189 votes for student trustree.  That was 1.18 percent of the potential electorate.

Both Phillips and Enders ran unopposed. Other people elected with no opposition included Dylan Keeling (vice president), Arianna Nevins (comptroller), Samantha Elliott (executive secretary of student legislation), and Ivan Gutierrez (director of campus activities). In the only  contest, Emma Carrillo was elected director of publicity, eking out a win over Sicarra Devers with 102 votes (52% of the vote).

On the same ballot, Devers was successful in her quest to become a member of the ASGC Board of Directors, joining the elected students mentioned above. In addition, the Board of Directors will include Molly Ayala, Wayne Anthony Butler, Christopher Foskett, Kevin Garcia, James Mauschbaugh, and Perla Perez. To join the board, these students had to file their candidacy and receive at least one student vote.
