The election results for SGA’s annual spring election are in.

South’s Student Government Association held elections and welcomed several new students. SGA also made an announcement regarding the student elections on their Instagram page. Results for the general election and student senate were posted April 6. 

Camille Bonura was elected as the new SGA president and Olivia Martin will be her vice president. Bonura previously served as the director for athletic relations and Martin is an Arts & Sciences senator along with Allison Reed, who will be the new treasurer.  

Maiben Mitchell, who currently serves as the First Year Council director in SGA’s executive branch is the new chief justice. Ansley Majewski will be the student at large and is serving as an education senator for the College of Education and Professional Studies for the 2021-2022 school year. Amya Douglas is the new attorney general and also serves as an Arts & Sciences senator for the current school year. 

The elected students will carry out their respective duties for the 2022-2023 school year.

SGA holds elections annually during the spring semester and each of the elected students will have to run for re-election next year if they intend to serve in their new roles for the following year. 
This year, SGA passed legislation which started a textbook lending program and helped to provide regalia to graduating students. Several items remain on the agenda for SGA to look at next year including increasing access to menstrual products on campus, enhancing the dining hall experience and increasing accessibility to SGA, according to their initiatives page.
