With the spring semester beginning, everyone is getting ready for a busy term, along with the many clubs and organizations at Angelo State. One of them being The Student Government Association who have big plans for the new semester.

“This semester SGA senators will be targeting all their initiatives and will be surveying students,” said SGA president Jarret Lujan. “They will be meeting with the administration and staff to form a bill before presenting it to the Student Senate.”

One of the initiatives being formed by SGA is a student lead endowment. The endowment will turn into a scholarship and be given to a student who meets the qualifications set forth by SGA.

At the December graduation ceremony of 2015, three SGA Senators, Maggie Smith, Matt Low and Josh Meyers graduated, allowing for some positions to open up for new candidates.

Matt Low represented the computer science department and served as their Senate Clerk. Maggie Smith and Josh Meyers each represented the political science department. Smith was in charge of the “Special Events” committee and was the Project Manager of the ASU Christmas Tree lighting for 2015.

For the 2016 spring semester, there are multiple positions open in SGA. There are four seats available for departmental representation. Two seats in the political science department, one seat in computer science, and one seat in agriculture remain available.

SGA’s president Jarret Lujan plans to ensure leadership within the Student Government Association. Lujan plans to enhance the SGA department within the senate and better serve ASU’s student body.

“SGA has strongly impacted my communication and leadership skills,” said Jarret Luna. “Leadership has always been my strongest skill but never have I been tested in such an amazing way. I love my job and I would encourage any student to pursue their dreams and goals.”

Jarret Lujan also expressed he will not be seeking reelection and that his term as SGA president will expire at the spring 2016 graduation ceremony.

SGA’s vice-president Haley Rhodes’ goal for the upcoming semester is to increase SGA’s campus presence.

“I hope that students know that SGA is always around to address concerns and to hear their recommendations,” said Haley Rhodes. “I also aim to enhance the student experience in any way I can. I feel that SGA can truly help with that.”

This semester SGA will continue to focus on bettering the campus as a whole and making positive decisions to improve ASU’s student body.
