Six Selected for Student Alumni Leadership

Jared C. Colton (’14), a senior in accounting from Johns Creek, Ga., will serve as president of BYU Student Alumni during the 2012–13 school year.

Colton became involved in the organization following his mission and has been active in etiquette and networking events. He also served on the Student Advisory Council. During his year as president, he will work with BYUSA and Y Serve, two other major student organizations.

“We will be positioned as the professional-development side of that triad and help connect students and create traditions for now and the future,” he says.
