Colton Ashley


Eccentric and unorthodox: these two words would describe Student Body Vice President Colton Ashley. Although he was born on the sandy beaches of Florida in 1995, Colton spent most of his childhood in Weyerhaeuser, Wisconsin. Growing up, Colton aspired to be the Heavyweight Champion of the World Wrestling Federation, but after realizing he wouldn't be able to reach that height, Colton decided to take up an interest in politics. A graduate from Chetek-Weyerhaeuser High School, Colton chose to enroll at UW-Eau Claire because of its amazing Political Science department and its affordability. He has been serving on Student Senate since the 58th session, and has committed himself to serve the entire student body with any issues that arise. Rumor has it that Colton is an unofficial Elvis tribute artist.

My name is Katy McGarry and I am a junior political science major with a communications studies minor.  This is my third year being involved with Student Senate and I am currently serving as the Chief of Staff and an off-campus Senator.  I am interested in representing students' interests within the University and to the state as a whole.  My goal is to be able to better listen to students concerns and ideas about their campus.

Jarrett Yuknis

Information Technology Director

Hi, my name is Jarrett! I am a fifth-year senior, double major in Accounting and Information Systems. This is my second year as the director for the Information Technology Commission, and I have had a blast leading an amazing group of people who have accomplished some very cool projects on campus. Outside of classes and senate, I really enjoy playing for the club baseball team at UWEC and being outdoors. I will be sad to leave, but I am very excited to be graduating this spring!
