Carver, Phillips new heads of SGA

by Vania Quiroz

Last week juniors Dan Carver and Kaela Phillips were sworn as president and vice president of Student Government Association respectively.

“I’m glad the students have trusted me with this responsibility and I hope that I can live up to their expectations,” Carver said.

Phillips shared Carver’s excitement although both are aware of the hard task they face.

According to Carver, several members of SGA have commented in the past that a common goal is to “get senate out of the Senate Room, and get it out to the student body.”

“It’s showing the student body that we’re actually doing other things than just handing out money to organizations,” Phillips said.

Carver said he’d like to have the same commitment from the SGA members this year as last year and he wants to make SGA more than just a “money organization.”

“I’d like to keep up the hard work all year long,” Carver said. “We have a lot of good people doing great things, so I’d like to see that determination and desire to help next year as well.”

Increasing a community feeling on campus is at the top of Phillip’s agenda.

“A general goal – with lots of ways to accomplish it – is uniting the campus community,” Phillips said. “We have to find the ways SGA can help make that happen.”
