ASG President Resigns
January 31, 2017
The president of the Associated Student Government formally resigned at the ASG meeting on Jan. 24 to further his career, according to Aaron Greene, the legislative vice president of the organization.
Kou Xiong resigned so he could start work as a teacher’s aide at Webster Elementary in the Fresno Unified School District. Xiong has no plans to return to the ASG and intends to create a career with Fresno Unified.
“Originally [Xiong] had scheduled it so that he would work at Webster in the mornings and be able to come to Fresno City College after and do his duties as president,” Greene said. “Unfortunately, Webster Elementary asked him to work hours that would conflict with being able to serve the student body.”
Kou Xiong has been hoping to become a teacher’s aide, so when the opportunity to further his career was given to him, the choice was clear. He had to step down as ASG president.
According to the constitution of the ASG, Greene has been appointed president. Xiong said, “I fully believe that Greene can do the job.”
With Greene filling the presidential position, this leaves an empty seat for vice president. Greene said that he will appoint a new vice president, and then it will be up to the ASG Senate to approve his nominee. “I know and support his nominee,” Xiong said when asked about the nominee.
