BHM Monterio Seewood

Black History Month is known for paying tribute to those who have affected our lives in the past, but we must also recognize those, such as student senator Monterio Seewood, who play a role in our lives now and in the future. Seewood, a member of the student senate, became a senator at Missouri Western in September of 2011. Screen Shot 2013-02-25 at 7.54.02 PM “I wanted to be part of important decisions on campus that would affect me as a student,” Seewood said. With a GPA of just over 2.25 and a full-time student status, Seewood was able to go to three SGA meetings, put in an application, and be voted in by the Senate. Since joining the Senate, Seewood has seen several things get passed to improve Missouri Western, such as being able to play a role in continuing the tradition of rally towels at football games and new desks in academic buildings. “An upgrade of the ‘living room’ in Potter Hall for the music, art and theatre students who practically live in the building" are just a few things that have shown forward progress for our university. Although much has been improved by the student government, there is still room for more. The Senate is looking to reach out to the students to let them know more of what they do, why they are important and how they can help with many issues on campus. “I think that will open up a channel of communication with the students that will make it easier for them to express what their concerns are and what they would like to see at Missouri Western," Seewood said. Unlike some senates we may know, Western's senate works well together and has developed friendships within it that make coming to resolutions much easier and faster. “We all respect each other and that’s the most important attribute when working collectively as a group.” Seewood said, and encourages other students to join the senate in making Missouri Western a better place to study. Seewood was inspired by his grandfather who taught him the value of hard work at a young age. “He always told me not to get involved with something unless I can give it my all.” During this year’s Black History Month Seewood has been reflecting on the struggles of his grandparents and their generation. He said he often thinks and appreciates how their struggles afforded him the opportunities he has today. Seewood has taken his grandfather’s advice and given the student government his all and says he enjoys having a “say-so” about important issues facing him and his peers. While here at Western he is majoring in finance and economic and plans to graduate in the Spring of 2015. Until then, Seewood will continue serving the student’s and playing a key role in the progression of Missouri Western.
