Associated Students Inc. Board of Directors Executive Vice President Donna Walters resigned effective immediately during the board’s meeting Wednesday.

Walters said she is resigning to focus on a new job opportunity and sent the board her resignation letter via email Monday evening.

“I very recently received an opportunity to help students in a larger capacity and on a deeper and more impactful manner than my current role allows,” Walters said.

Walters speaks during a regularly scheduled board meeting Wednesday. She is one of two board members who have resigned during the Fall 2020 semester.

ASI President Noah Marty thanked Walters for her work on the board and said he is thankful to have served on the board with her.

Walters told the board she is proud of the work they accomplished this semester serving the student body.

“I am absolutely honored to be part of this family,” Walters said.

This is the second member of the ASI board to resign this semester. Kailah N. Jenkins resigned as natural sciences and mathematics director during the board’s Nov. 19 meeting in order to focus on working full-time and pausing her progress to a degree.
