Shayna Mullen, junior, and Brayden Woods, sophomore, shake hands after being sworn into office at the end of the 89th session. Mullen is the new president and Woods is the new vice president. 


The departing student body president said her goodbyes as the Student Government Association wrapped up the 89th session and began the 90th on Monday. 

The 90th session elected a new executive office for the new session.

Junior Shayna Mullen is the new president, sophomore Brayden Woods is her vice president, sophomore Michael Abarca keeps his position of parliamentarian, Junior Claire Benschoter is the new president pro tempore, junior Rosalyn Hollingsworth is still the senate clerk and Kasey Smith remains the secretary.  

“We appreciate all of the effort,” Hollingsworth said to the 89th senate. “Thank you all for a great 89th session.”

Hollingsworth said she knew the votes were very close for the executive officer positions.  

“I know all of the nominees would have been terrific at any of these positions,” Hollingsworth said. “We appreciate everyone that puts in the effort to at least run for a position.”

Emily Hecox, former president, said her goodbyes to her senate as she passed the torch to Mullen.

“I never thought this day would come,” Hecox said. “I am very sad that this is my last student government meeting, and I have been dreading it all day because I’m not going to be able to see y’all’s faces.”

Hecox said the student government has been a great part of her life here at ASU. 

“Thank you all for making this semester wonderful,” Hecox said. “I really loved to be able to get to serve Angelo State in this way.” 

Hecox said she’s sad to leave but excited to graduate.

Woods said SGA sees all the work the senate put in to make this campus better.

Abarca said it was a great year and they got a lot done.

“I just wanted to give a big shout out to the PR team for helping with the student discount program,” Abarca said. “We have been able to grow this program tremendously.”

Abarca said they were able to add 26 new additions to the program.

“It has been in privilege,” Abarca said. 

Smith said everyone in the 89th session has done a great job. 

“I look forward to working with y’all next semester before I graduate,” Smith said.
