Results of the Student Government Association officer elections were announced Nov. 17 in Brewer Dining Hall. The results are:

SGA President – Holly Johnson

“We’ve been given a unique opportunity with a new administration, to make transitions and create a stronger bond between students, their organizations and our school’s leadership,” said Johnson, junior business administration major. “I would also love to use the position to listen to students and meet needs on a peer-to-peer basis.”

SGA Vice President – Emma Kurt

“I want to see if we can get a better location or a system where more people can come into Harvey Hall [for senate],” said Kurt, sophomore biology major.

SGA Secretary – Suzanne Fletcher

Fletcher, junior public relations major, said she wanted to run for the position of SGA secretary because she wants to serve the student body as a whole. She said she wants to use her public relations skills and knowledge to fulfill her job of spreading the word about SGA events.

As a sophomore council member, Alpha Tau Omega’s treasurer and University Relations Ambassador, Hurt, sophomore cell and molecular biology major, said he wants to use his experience organizing events to maintain a balanced budget and advise organizations who are granted SGA funds.
