UPC Vice President

by SGA Beat Writer Kristen Goode

Adam McCollum, Brianna Jordan and Jonathan Barnett will appear on the ballot for vice president of UPC.

McCollum, a senior, said “driven” is one word he uses to describe himself.

He said his ability to motivate people, his work ethic and his prior experience in planning UPC and Senate events qualify him for the position.

McCollum pointed to his “Flo-town to College Town” plan as his platform.

“Florence is a college town; however, it doesn’t really feel like one,” he said. “My focus this year will be making Florence and UNA a more student-friendly place through our UPC events.”

Jordan, a senior, said her platform “BrithePurpose for Change, Inclusion and Growth” and her experience as a former Freshman Forum adviser are reasons for students to give her their votes.

“SGA needs more partnerships with the student body and to be more transparent because we use student money,” she said.

Jordan said “dedicated” best describes her.

Barnett, a sophomore, currently serves as UPC’s Culture and Education Committee chairman, and said he believes he has enough experience to handle UPC.

“I actually care about the student body opinion,” he said. “I want a face-to-face relationship with the student body as much as I can.”

Barnett said he hopes to reach students from all demographics to increase diversity in UPC and SGA as a whole.

Barnett said he describes himself as “individualized.”
