SGA positions filled; winners announced

By Jordan Nicole Taylor

The president, vice president, director of social life and director of communications positions were filled for Associated Student Body Student Government Association, but students will vote again for chaplain and student services in run-off elections next week.

Riley Wampler ran unopposed and will return to his post as ASB president. Bailey Bussell will be vice president, Evans Knowles will be the director of communications and Adam Crum will be the director of social life.

None of the candidates running for chaplain or director of student services won the majority vote, so a run-off election is scheduled for next week, March 19 through 21, for the top two percentage ranking candidates of each position.

The chaplain candidates are Jenna Taylor and Dillon Jones, who received the two highest percentage of votes this week.

Of the three candidates who ran for director of social services, two tied. So, all three candidates will run again; Graham Scott, Chelsea Hardy and Kristin Lester.

“So we don’t have a top two at all, we have a top three,” said Johnna Hill, 2011-2012 SGA vice president, who counted the 277 ballots with three other SGA members. “Hopefully we’ll know the winners by next week.”

Though some candidates ran unopposed, candidates must receive a majority vote to be elected into office.

Hill would not release voting percentages.

“Due to protecting the feelings of those who have lost, SGA has chosen not to release the percentages,” Hill said.

Votes for chaplain and director of student services will be held Monday through Wednesday, at the SGA booth from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Elections for the unopposed positions of TrevEchoes editor and Trevecca intramurals director will be held simultaneously.
