In the first Student Government Association (SGA) meeting to include officers for the 2018-2019 semester, senators discussed committee positions and aspirations for the upcoming school year.
In other actions, committee members made various announcements, attendees created plans for the upcoming school and new senators voted for their chaplain.
SGA President Tyler Clark began the meeting by introducing the recently elected SGA executives and senators.
“There is so much potential and ability in this group and I am really excited to work with everyone,” Clarke said.
SGA attendees voted for the new chaplain for the upcoming school year at last night’s meeting. Nominees Hannah Durham, Andrew Ash and Caitlin Lea gave speeches inspiring students to keep their Christianity at the forefront of their lives. After a runoff, the SGA elected freshman Hanna Durham to the position.
SGA sponsor Liz McElroy presented the roles of each committee, encouraging new senators to think about how they want to serve in the SGA. The Academics, Endowment, Healthy living and Multicultural committees all need committee chairs for next semester.
