Fellow Veterans, I would like to introduce myself.  My name is Jared Shelton and I have the opportunity to represent your voice as the Senator for Veteran Students.

I served in the Navy for 10 years, working communications on submarines and NATO facilities, then finishing my service in 2019 as a First Class Petty Officer (E6).  Of all the training and equipment provided in the military, I realized what I could always rely on was the people around me. I became a strong advocate of taking care of my Sailors first, believing that a ready and reliable crew is the best thing you can take with you on any mission, and I carry that belief still.  I want to make sure your voice is heard, and that ready and reliable resources are available to you here at Weber State University.  I am currently pursuing an English Education Major; in working with the Student Association and various other committees, my goal is to help shape the campus and classrooms we use.  If there are issues or concerns that you have with University policies or resources, please reach out to me so that we can address them together.  You can write any time to jaredshelton@weber.edu and I will be happy to assist in whatever way I can.  I look forward to getting to know all of you.
