Karg served as co-chair this past year. He was nominated for re-election by another student body president and was voted in by the members of NSLA.
He and Olivet’s 10 new executives attended NSLC at Ambrose University College in Canada from April 5 to April 10.
Clayton resigns from PLNU ASB
By Jessica Cohea
Todd Clayton, a senior at Point Loma Nazarene University, announced to the student body that he is stepping down as their Associated Student Body Director of Spiritual Life.
Clayton told The Point Weekly, PLNU’s student newspaper, he resigned because he’s tired, not because he was asked to.
“I need to attend to my person apart from my role [as spiritual life director],” he said.
Clayton expects to be paid in full for his time on ASB this year, according to The Point Weekly. He said he has done all of the work already.
Clayton recently announced to the PLNU community that he is gay. He is now working to establish a gay-straight alliance at PLNU.
