Your 2017-2018 Student Body President and Vice President

First, I would like to give a thank you to Shania Jones, Jacob Sykes, Macy Thompson, and Si Deane, who all ran a clean campaign and engaged students from all parts of this campus.

Second, I would like to congratulate Shania and Macy for their victory in this campaign. I look forward to supporting you in any way that I can during the next year and there are so many others who will also be by your side as you lead this organization and the student body.

This has been a momentous year for Student Government and this election adds to that significance. This year more people voted for President and Vice President than any other year before this. Homecoming King and Queen is another election that SGA holds and this election far surpassed those numbers as well. At 1,141 voters, this election for Student Body President and Vice President had the most participation of any election thus far on this campus. I'm extremely happy to see participation in this election and I hope to see that same level of participation when voicing your concerns, providing SGA feedback, or even joining SGA yourself.

I will officially leave the Office of the President upon Shania's inauguration and I hope that you all will join me in that celebration. The inauguration for Student Body President, Vice President, and the new Congress will be on April 24th at 10am in the lobby of the Beaman Student Life Center. I hope to see you there!

Thank you for voting, thank you for your support of me, and thank you for the support that I know you will give to Shania and Macy!
