Habusta Assumes International Leadership Role in ASAP
SAULT STE. MARIE, Mich. -- Lake Superior State University student Steve Habusta, a junior from Holland, Ohio, has been named District 5 representative for the Association of Student Advancement Programs.
Habusta, a representative of LSSU Student Government and a former resident assistant, replaces Jair Kollasch, who was appointed to the position several months ago but can not complete his term. Association by-laws call for the host organization to select a replacement in the event that a representative is unable to complete his elected term, according to Mark Jastorff, ASAP District 5 advisor and LSSU Associate Vice President for Advancement.
As district representative, Habusta and Student Alumni Involved for Lake State (SAILS) are responsible for coordinating the activities and programs for a six-state district that includes more than 80 schools plus all of the Big 10 universities. SAILS and LSSU serve as the district headquarters through the fall of 2002.
“I'm excited to tackle the challenges facing the association,” said Habusta. “The organization is in a major transition at the international level, so not only will we have the chance to have a lot of input in the direction of ASAP, it will be a great learning experience for SAILS and me.”
Habusta and Jastorff serve on an eight-member executive committee that oversees the activities of the association of 400 organizations on campuses in the United States and Canada. Member organizations work with their respective alumni and development offices, admissions efforts, and with their institution’s president to promote their universities.
