The Student Government Association brought in new leaders for this upcoming academic year by having its annual Spring 2017 SGA Executive Board Elections. The new leaders were announced at Spring Day. The positions are Student Body President, Vice President of Administration, Vice President of Student Activities, Treasurer and Secretary.
This year the positions that were not the Student Body President ran unopposed. Luke Williams, junior and business management major, is the new SGA President. Levi Cochran, sophomore and business management major, is the Vice President of Administration. Jordan Beach, junior and communication and media studies major, is the Vice President of Student Activities. Bill Hess, junior and business management major, is the Treasurer, and Adrienne Lawrence, junior and music education major, is the Secretary.
Williams said, “Ultimately, I just want to serve my Reinhardt community. I’ve had a wonderful experience here and I want others to have the same. My parents raised me to serve others without asking for anything in return and that’s exactly what I plan on doing.” Williams is the current Vice President of Administration. He has a 4.0 GPA and he is an honors student.
Williams inspired Hess to run for treasurer. Hess believes that his other leadership experience and business classes equipped him to fill this position. “I have a lot of knowledge with being the treasurer of the fraternity here on campus and my business classes have taught me a lot with accounts and finances,” said Hess.
Cochran said, “Running for VP was a goal of mine since I got to Reinhardt. I am just glad I got this opportunity so early in my college career. I believe I can offer this position enthusiasm and great work ethic. My excitement over having this position will most certainly guide me to use it to make decisions to better help the school and students.”
The students that forgot to vote online or at the Tarpley polls from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. need to make it a priority to vote next year for the student representation of Reinhardt. Student elections are a perfect opportunity for the student voice to be heard.
Congratulations to all of this year’s elected leaders.
