KCMA Votes`08 Encourages Students to Become Active Voters
On Monday, Sept. 29, more than 200 students, faculty and staff visited the Kettering College Student Center to participate in “kc Votes ‘08.” This non-partisan election party was designed to encourage students to register to vote, learn more about the presidential candidates, and to encourage them to vote in every election and make their voices heard. Attendees were treated to an “election cupcake” and were able to complete a presidential quiz for a chance to win a political movie prize pack.
The party resulted over 65 students registering to vote or completing an absentee ballot request. Out-of-state students also were assisted in obtaining an absentee ballot so they can vote while on-campus.
Nuclear medicine student Allison Engelman was the grand prize winner in the presidential quiz contest. She was one of only three entrants to answer all of the questions correctly, and she won the final drawing that netted her three political movie DVDs, plus a National Amusement gift pack containing movie tickets and concessions vouchers. Runners-up were Chloe Baran (human biology) and Daniel Grant (respiratory care).
“kc Votes ‘08” was sponsored by the Kettering College Alumni Association.
