SGA elections results are in for the 2018-2019 school year.
Laura Thompson, a junior communication major from Rutherfordton, is the newly elected SGA president.
One of the things that she wants the student body to know is that “Everyone’s voice is important and everyone matters.”
Thompson said she wants to make sure that students are more aware of SGA and what it does. She wants the students to understand that SGA is government by the student body and that it has been established to help with students’ questions and concerns.
Laura will succeed outgoing president Amanda Alling, who is graduating.
She said she thought her greatest accomplishments this year have been in revamping the structure of the organization.
“We were able to create effective change that will surely set the next Executive Board up for success next school year,” Alling said.
She is also proud of SGA’s contribution of spreading Bulldog spirit around campus from sponsoring a Gold Rush game for football to enhancing Coffee on the Quad, and various other events.
“We were able to spread the feeling of One Dog around campus,” she said
Other officers for next year, who were chosen in the recent elections were Kirby Von Egidy,Trace Jolly, Kailey Ezekiel, Natalie Hart, Samantha Hiller,Nico Ortega, Daniel Berrezueta and Diareth Flores.
