STATESBORO – The election for the new Georgia Southern Student Government Association president began Thursday morning, with Senate members voting until midnight Friday.
The election to replace former president Juwan Smith, who recently resigned, was announced at the SGA meeting Wednesday. The two candidates running for president are currently holding positions at the Statesboro and Armstrong campuses.
Kahria Hadley, junior marketing and economics major, and Spencer DeMink, junior political science major, are the executive vice presidents of the Statesboro and Armstrong campuses respectively.
A nationwide search to fill the position for vice president of Student Affairs has begun. The role is currently held by interim VP Melanie Miller.
This process was launched by GS President Kyle Marrero and has been officially posted on the GS Human Resources website. This will involve a large committee, phone interviews and eventually visits to GS for further interviewing and selecting.
Candidates can be expected to visit GS around February or March and then are expected to start their position anywhere from May to July.
