Stephen Washington, of Moon Township, was appointed to the Shippensburg University Council of Trustees by Governor Tom Wolf and approved by the Pennsylvania Senate. Washington will represent his peers as the student member of council.

Washington will replace graduating senior Evan Redding who served as two-year term as student trustee.

“I am excited to pass on the responsibilities of student trustee to Stephen, as I am confident he will be extremely successful,” Redding said.

Washington, a junior management information systems major and military science minor, is an active member of the campus community. He is the student at-large representative for the Shippensburg University Student Services, Inc. (SUSSI) Board of Directors, a member of the Student Government Association and a member of the newly formed Pivot Team.

As a member of Shippensburg University ROTC, he has served as an Academic Success Program peer leader and a resident assistant for the ROTC Living Learning Community.

The Eagle Scout and graduate of Carson Long Military Academy said he is excited to start his new role.

“I am humbled by the confidence placed in me to represent the students of Shippensburg University. I am assuming this role with an open mind, a willingness to engage and the determination to advance Shippensburg University’s prominence within the State System and the overall higher education system in Pennsylvania,” Washington said.
