Conner House, a Sumner High School alum, was elected Student Body President at Gonzaga University last spring.

House, 21, said he starting thinking about student government in high school. He played football for three years at Sumner High School, but decided to run for Associated Student Body in his senior year.

“I found a calling through ASB that I didn’t have on the field,” House said. “It was a better way to build myself up.”

House was admitted to Gonzaga in 2011, where he lived in a dorm building for three years, eventually becoming a resident assistant. House also helped put together a Young Life program at Gonzaga, which is a ministry program for college students.

House ran for Student Body President in his junior year because as president, it would be “an easy way to reach out to people” on campus and make Gonzaga a better school. He said his three bigs goals for this year is to focus on making Gonzaga a more environmentally sustainable school, work on off-campus safety and look for ways students can work with the local community and bring together “two separate communities that are sometimes at odds with each other.”
