On May 2, 2011, Aaron Wilson was elected to serve a two-year term as a Councilmember for the Town of Fairmount Heights, Maryland. Wilson, a Senior History Major at WAU, received the second highest vote total in the election which voters elected a new mayor and three new council members.
“Having lived in the town for nearly 18 years, I saw the need for a competent leadership in the town and I felt that I could help foster good change for the town”, said Wilson.
Aaron is no stranger to being placed in leadership roles. While attending WAU, Aaron has served as President of the Black Student Union, Parliamentarian and Executive Vice-President for both the Student Association (WAUSA) and the Adventist Intercollegiate Association (AIA).
Aaron credits his decision to run for office to the experiences and lesson he has encountered while attending WAU. “The emphasis on service, both to God and to community, has left an enduring mark on my life. The importance of being in community and helping better the quality of life for your fellow neighbor.”
