Students should hold SGA officers accountable

Life comes down to a few defining moments. For me, becoming your Student Government Association President is one of them.

My last three years at UNA have provided me with amazing opportunities and countless people who have led me to this time.

I can remember seeing SGA President KeKoria Greer get sworn in my freshman year and thinking, “I wanted this.” It is crazy to think I first had that thought two years ago, and now it is my reality.

People have constantly told me my year as SGA President will fly by, so I think it is only appropriate to begin this year with a challenge.

Over the next 12 months, our campus will continue to grow, change and become better. However, nothing truly great can happen without the student voice.

I challenge you, the student, to hold me, your SGA President, accountable. Keep me accountable to be your voice, not my own. Approach me when we need to get something done, or when you just need someone to listen. Help me to be steadfast in every duty, small or large.

My hope, when you look back on your years here at UNA, is not that you remember my name or I was SGA President. My hope is you can say you sincerely love our university and the experiences you had here.

Please let me know if there is anything I can do to make your time here at UNA better. Feel free to contact me or stop by the new SGA offices in the Guillot University Center if you ever need anything.

I am so thankful to all who have helped me to get to this point in my life, and I am very excited about this upcoming year.

Thank you so much for electing me as your SGA President, UNA.
