Emily Hecox and Tristan Fielder take their oaths for Student Body President and Vice President. Fielder and Hecox passed six bills in their first meeting as presidents and vice presidents.

On April 24, the Student Government Association inducted multiple senators and swore in the new president and vice president.

Former vice president Alfredo Felipe said he will be helping new VP Emily Hecox in her new position so she can know what to expect.

"I feel that she is prepared," Felipe said. "She has been up there and helped me manage some of the meetings."

Felipe said he is hoping for the best.

"I think she is qualified and will do a very good job," Felipe said.

Former president Peyton Labauve also gave his thoughts about the new president Tristan Fielder.

"I think Tristan is extremely prepared and I think he had an excellent campaign," Labauve said. "I am most proud of him for following through on his campaign promises and passing those six bills that represented the six points of his campaign."

Labauve said he thinks Fielder will do excellent.

"We are going to be training him through this next month to make sure he is prepared," Labauve said.

He is confident with how the senate will do next semester.

"I’m moving on in peace," Labauve said.

In Monday’s meeting, they passed six bills.

"We passed various resolutions that will set our plans for the scantron distribution program, parking, recycling, a safe ride program, filtered water fountains and living learning communities for Greek Life into motion," Fielder said.

They plan to accomplish many of these initiatives over the summer, and continue to push remaining initiatives throughout the year, as well as new projects that senators bring to the table as well.
