Two new faces joined the table at the last Food Services Advisory Committee (FSAC) meeting. Residential students now have more representation after the addition of two at-large positions. Filling the spots are Shelbie Morgan, an Industrial Engineering freshman, and Ashley Nwokedi, an Interdisciplinary Studies freshman.

FSAC decided to add the two positions in order to increase residential student involvement in the committee regarding food service. The positions were opened up to all UH residential students who completed the application process. FSAC then reviewed the applications and voted to add Morgan and Nwokedi to their group.

“We’re excited about Shelbie and Ashley joining FSAC and bringing their perspectives about food service to the committee,” said Esmeralda Valdez, Executive Director of Auxiliary Services. “We embrace and welcome any and all opportunities to hear feedback and work with students on improving all our services to ensure we consistently provide the best services possible.”

Nwokedi and Morgan both said they heard about the positions from friends and decided to apply. They will join two other residential student representatives appointed by the Residential Housing Association and four other student representatives serving on the committee.

“I wanted to help people have their voices heard and have my voice heard as well,” Nwokedi said. “It was a good opportunity to represent students at my school.”

Morgan also saw the position as an opportunity to get involved and influence the daily lives of UH students.

“College is the time for you to discover who you are and your true calling in life, and I figured while you’re there, quality of food will become a necessity to make it through your college career,” Morgan said. “With all of the hassle of day to day college affairs, a mental break with a well balanced meal can get you back on track to success. I wanted to ensure that every student had someplace they could just go and eat for rejuvenation of both body and mind.”

Morgan said she hopes to help the committee produce new ideas and help improve food choice for fellow students. Nwokedi also wants to become a person students can contact to voice their concerns and requests.

“I hope to help students answer their questions and transfer their comments to the committee members,” she said.

The two attended their first meeting on Feb. 11 where the group visited the Bauer College’s Starbucks and a C-store in Calhoun Lofts. The group then held their regular meeting in the UH Dining Services’ board room to further answer questions and attend to scheduled agenda items.

“I found the first meeting very productive; we discussed innovation for the food services here on campus,” Morgan said. “Also, I found that everyone was open-minded to each person’s comments and ideas, which established an ambiance of tranquility in the room.”
