Meet the new ASUW President Brian Schueler and the new Vice President Emily Kath
Although Brian has had the privilege of traveling to many different locales, Buffalo, Wyoming is truly his home town. Upon Graduation from Buffalo High, Brian came to UW to pursue a degree in International Studies, and later added an Economics major. During his time at UW, Brian has been active in ASUW, and was a recipient of the Charlotte Hearne Davis Freshman Senator Scholarship for his work on the freshman senate. He has served as an ex-officio for the Intra-fraternity Council and continues to be involved with his own fraternity, Sigma Alpha Epsilon, where he served as the vice president for the past academic year. Brain was a recipient of the Chinese Ambassador’s Wyoming Scholarship, and spent his Junior year in Beijing, China, studying Chinese which was a truly transformative experience.
This semester, Brian has spent much of his time working as a senator, and putting in extra time to better understand ASUW in preparation for the election. He is very excited to get to work on the platforms that he and Emily have put together, and looks forward to a great year ahead!
