Student Council Elections Leave Five Positions Open

By Grace Hitzeman

The Student Council election results were announced last Monday, April 2. Im really excited and I feel confident that I can do a good job next year, Student Council President-elect Faith McDuffie 13 said. Joining McDuffie on Student Council next year are Natalie Hession 13 as vice president for Academic Affairs, Kelsey Mazeski 13 as vice president for Student Life and Alexander Ramani 13 as chair for Safety and Security. Andie Asimes 13 and Sam Baker 13 will serve as treasurers for the Business and Finance Committee (BFC), and Tommy Brown 13 was elected as the new Housing and Dining chair.

Monty Clark 13 will serve as the Campus Senate co-chair, working with Senate Secretary Sarah Baldessari 15 and Independent Representative to the Senate Danny Semelsberger 15. The Senior Class President-elect is Ryan Liegner 13. Liegner has served as his class president every year for four years. Senior year is the big year as far as class committees are concerned, Liegner said. [Im] looking forward to planning a lot of events.

Samuel Loomis 14 will serve as junior class representative to Student Council alongside Junior Class Representative to Senate Luke Rogers 14.

The sophomore class is the only class with no vacant positions. Kelsey Hamilton 15 will be the sophomore class representative to Student Council and Ryan Nabil 15 will be the sophomore class representative to Senate. Rising Sophomore Class President Meredith Bentsen 15 said, [I am] very excited to represent next years sophomore class. Our class is really dynamic and energetic so that makes me even more excited.

Despite enthusiasm about student government next year from elected officials, several positions remain open. The senior class representative to Student Council position remains open, as McDuffie ran unopposed and accepted the position of Student Council President instead.

Both the positions for senior class representative to the Senate and junior class president remain open because there were no candidates. Other open positions include Chair of Buildings and Grounds and communications director for Student Council.
