Tristan Fielder and Emily Hecox were victorious after weeks of campaigning for student body president and vice president, respectively. The pair is set to be sworn in as Student Body President and Vice President on April 24.

Fielder, biology major and veteran Student Government member will be taking the torch from former Student Body President Peyton Labauve.

Hecox is a member of the highly acclaimed Rambelle Rugby Club and will assist Fielder in the upcoming year.

Fielder and Hecox discussed their lives, next steps and thanked the public for their support.

"I’m a third generation Ram, and have really been blessed by all of the opportunities and experiences my family has had through ASU," Fielder said.

A member of Tri-Beta, Honors Students Association and an unpaid intern at the San Angelo Nature Center Fielder is dedicated to many causes.

After receiving a Carr Distinguished Scholarship and with her family history at ASU, Hecox knew this was the perfect fit.

The admissions counselor knew her name after her first tour and recognized her when she came back for a second event, which was a big factor in her attending.

"I am not just a number here at ASU," Hecox said.

Aside from Rambelle Rugby, Hecox is involved in the Honors Program, Phi Kappa Phi, Alpha Chi, RAMbassadors and the Student Government Association.

"Emily and I are hardworking people that take pride in all that we do," Fielder said. "Whether it’s our classes, our off campus volunteerism, or our work in Student Government, we are dedicated to working hard until we accomplish what we’ve set out to do."

Now that campaigning is done, Fielder said it’s time to get to work.

"We worked really hard to get the opportunity to be able to address the issues we outlined in our campaign," Fielder said.

After they are sworn in on April 24, they will initiate their major platform programs.

"We will be working all summer to get some of our initiatives done before students return in the fall," Hecox said.

Fielder said they will continue to push these initiatives until they accomplish all they promised the student body.

"Together, and with a lot of hard work, we will create a better Angelo State," Fielder said.

Fielder’s favorite memory from campaigning was being able to connect and communicate with students and student organizations.

"We had the opportunity to speak in front of and sit down with countless organizations and students," Fielder said. "I would have never imagined I would be able to do that six months ago."

Hecox said her favorite memory was campaigning outside the UC.

"We facilitated their issues and concerns, which we will continue to do with the help of our senate and our open-door policy," Hecox said.

The support and love they received throughout this process has been a blessing according to Fielder.

"Thank you (student body) for your support; Emily and I are ready to get to work," Fielder said.

Hecox said they couldn’t have done this without everyone’s support and they will continue to work for the student body.

"As always, if you have any concerns or ideas about how to create a better Angelo State, please don’t hesitate to come see us or email us," Hecox said.
