Anderson and Hamilton thank SGA for great year
The Student Government Association convened Tuesday in their first meeting following the 2014 SGA elections.
Though no new business was discussed, outgoing officers thanked students and SGA staff for what they called a great year for A-State.
Former vice president Sarah Hamilton opened the meeting and reminisced on the past year.
“It was intense, it was good,” Hamilton said.
“It was an honor to be your president. Thanks all you guys for your support, your help,” said former SGA president D’Andre Anderson.
Logan Mustain will preside over the SGA in the 2014-2015 school year as the newly elected president, and Brook Jones will serve as vice president.
They, along with incoming sophomore, junior and senior senators, will be sworn in at the April 1 meeting at 5:30 p.m. on the 8th floor of the Dean B. Ellis Library.
The results of this year’s election were announced at 5 p.m. Tuesday afternoon.
Mustain is a sophomore communication studies major of Benton and served as a sophomore senator in SGA this school year.
“The election went very well and I am optimistic about the direction that ASU and the Student Government Association are headed in,” Mustain said.
He is thankful to all his peers who helped him become president.
“I had a solid group of fellow students supporting me the entire way and none of this could have been done without them,” he said.
Mustain said he decided to run for the presidential seat because he heard a great deal of good ideas circulating throughout the student body, however, there was never any real leadership to make these ideas become realities.
Mustain believes the key to achieving his goal as president is to solidify and unify the student body so ASU will become a place where the students are known for their enthusiasm and involvement on and off campus.
There are over 10,000 undergraduates at A-State and the goal is to strive to be a school where all students are involved in the college and community, Mustian said.
He hopes to boost student participation through events such as Spirit Week.
One event Mustain is excited for is known as the First Annual Sun Belt Leadership Conference. Through this conference, student leaders from all schools in the Sun Belt Conference can come together. A-State will be the head of establishing the first ever efforts to unify student leaders in the conference, Mustian said.
Overall, Mustain’s focus is on the students of A-State.
“I want to transform the every-day student’s good ideas into realities,” Mustian said. He plans to do so by connecting with the students in multiple ways, from Twitter to Facebook to Instagram.
He said he wants to be a president who is accessible to all students on campus.
“My door will always be open. This position will be a lot easier with the feedback and support of the student body so I would really like to uphold the theme of accessibility,” said Mustain.
