It is hard to believe that the spring semester is drawing to a close once again. I think it is important to reflect on what we have done as an organization this year and look forward to what is in store for the College Conservatives in the year to come.
The fall of 2012 was a busy time for us as we tried to motivate the campus with the numerous elections in November ranging from the President of the United States to local positions here in Watertown. The cabinet of the College Conservatives became specially certified to register new voters in Watertown. In all, we were able to register approximately 200 new voters in our district alone.
We also felt it was important for the group to be engaged in the conversations happening at the national level by watching the presidential and vice presidential debates. Every event featured packed classrooms of students and other Maranatha family becoming informed voters!
The spring semester was a slightly different story. A number of issues had to be overcome in the group including problems with our blog, The Manifesto. After finally getting back online we have been able to begin posting new articles about what is going on in our country. We were able to award a winner in our blog contest which was very encouraging.
As the year is winding down, the new cabinet of the CCMC for the 2013-2014 school year has already begun preparations for events and meetings for the College Conservatives. We are looking to expand our uses of social media as well as the different ways members of our group interact with one another and engage in the meaningful political discussion.
It has been a wonderful year to serve you in the numerous ways we have and we look forward to partnering with you in the future as we seek to keep the Maranatha family informed.
For His glory,
Adam Tyler Burton
