The 25th annual Rammys event will take place on April 20 from 7-9 p.m. in the CJ Davidson of the UC, and SGA’s special events committee is preparing for the event.

The Rammys is an awards ceremony hosted by SGA and MSAP.

Alex Holguin, Rammys liaison for SGA and special events committee chair, said the event is held to recognize RSOs and faculty who might not receive recognition throughout the year.

Emily Hecox said she is advising the committee and keeping them on track this year, because she was the Rammys liaison and committee chair last year.

"I am there to assist them along the way," Hecox said.

Hecox said organizations submit their nominations for the awards they qualify for.

"I am not currently allowed to give out the nominations," Hecox said. "The nominees for each award will be invited to attend and will be announced at the Rammys."

Hecox said there are many categories. There are individual awards, categorical awards and all student organization awards.

Hecox was awarded Promising Female Leader of the Year award along with Emily Vidal and Jackson Rebrovich as the Promising Male Leader.

Hecox’s club, Rambelle Rugby, was also awarded Club Sports Organization of the Year last year.

Holguin said there is a panel of seven judges who choose the winners, four faculty and three students.

Hecox said the night begins with a nice dinner and is hosted by the SGA President and Vice President.

"Each award is presented by an invited faculty/staff member and a SGA senator," Hecox said.

"After the awards are handed out, the RamFamily Scholarship is presented to the winner, and the torch is passed to the new SGA President and VP."

Hecox said in the previous year, SGA has worked with Student Life to put on the event and this year they are working with MSAP, which is their first time.

"There are four of us who meet regularly to plan this event. Robert Garcia, Alex Holguin, myself and Selene Corcino," Hecox said.

Hecox said they meet to do things such as design invitations, plan the order, plan the menu, etc.

"It takes a lot of work, but we are all happy to plan this event to reward our hard-working student organizations," Hecox said.

Holguin said this event is a great way for members of the ASU family to come together in order to recognize people for the hard work they put in during the year.

"I also think the Rammys allows ASU to show spirit," Holguin said.

Hecox said this is one of her favorite events.

"It brings together all the student organizations and rewards them for their hard work all year long," Hecox said.
