New senate, SGA officers elected

The fall 2004-2005 Student Government Association elections were held earlier this month in the Exhibit Hall of the Student Union. Approximately 1,030 students turned out to vote in the fall elections. The new SGA members have great expectations for this school year.

51 students were elected to new offices. The judiciary council elected seven new members. Freshman class officers were elected: President, Leo D. Breckenridge; Vice President, Breana L.

Brandon Dillahunt, a newly elected member of the district two senate, is going to try to get more scholarships and internships for the school of Business and Economics students.

Calvin Williams Jr., 2004-2005 SGA president, has a positive outlook for the current school year. “For my remaining eight months in office, I plan on unifying the campus, raising the level of consciousness amongst the students, and developing Aggie Leaders. These three key plans trickle down into everything that this university will do that is involved or related with the Student Government Association,” said Williams.
