The Student Council election results were announced last Monday, April 2. “I’m 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. “[I’m] 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 year’s 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.
