Adam Moore, President: "My name is Adam Moore and I’m the President of SGA! You might also see me as the RA of Douglas Y, a member of the Debate and Forensics Team, or in theatre productions! In my free time I love to talk and read about politics (Vote in 2020!), I work at Sterling High School as the Assistant Debate and Forensics Coach, and I have a slight coffee addiction. I’m so unbelievably excited to be in SGA this year and make real change to the way we operate in an increasingly technology driven time. Feel free to stop by to talk to me about clubs, plan out events, or show me pictures of dogs (because corgis never get old). #PeoplesPresident"

I have two older sisters and a younger brother who plays football here at SC! I am a Kansan through and through, being a native from Hutchinson. This past summer I had the amazing opportunity to live and serve at a children’s day camp over in Richmond, CA! California holds such a special place in my heart and I cannot wait to see if I make it back out there. After the camp was over, I journeyed up to Canada and then came back down the west coast. I am in love with the coasts pine trees and cold ocean waves. In addition, if you talk to me about cats and or coffee I guarantee we’ll become fast friends!"
