The Student Government Association on Feb. 24 filled vacant seats and hosted a guest speaker to discuss social media.

The SGA invited Brittney Miller, mar­keting specialist with the Office of Commu­nications and Marketing, to train all sena­tors to run SGA’s social media platforms.

“Social media is not as exclusive as it used to be,” Miller said. “Everybody has it, so remember you have to try and stand out. If you are using Angelo State’s brand, we have certain rules that we have to follow per federal guidelines.”

Miller gave the SGA tips to run their platforms effectively while teaching them the responsibilities and requirements that come with representing ASU.

In the next order of business, Senator Madison Wallace was approved by unani­mous consent to switch her position from the Freshman Seat to the ROTC Seat.

After the resignation of Lambert Landry, the position of president pro-tem­pore became available. Senators Kristen Kilpatrick and Mason Hightower were nominated to compete for the available spot. After questioning the nominees, the senators voted, and Kilpatrick was named the new president pro-tempore for SGA.

“Thank you for electing me,” Kilpat­rick said. “I’m excited for the rest of the se­mester. I always prioritize SGA and I really care about this organization.”

Kilpatrick’s previous position as the student services committee chair became available and Senator Levai Dehoyos, co-chair for Kilpatrick’s committee, was nomi­nated and approved by unanimous consent to take over the committee chair.

Next, the SGA passed Bill 91.15, which presents the idea of creating a physi­cal suggestion box outside of the SGA office located downstairs in the Center for Student Involvement.

Senate Bill 91.16 was also passed to recognize ASU’s co-ed cheer team for win­ning nationals for the third year in a row, while Bill 91.17, a resolution to amend the Rules of the Senate to restructure the com­mittees of the student Senate, was tabled for the next meeting.

Lastly, senators announced the date and venue change of the 2020 Rammies to April 21 at the Junell Center, along with discussing the SGA banquet on April 20 at Fuzzy’s Taco Shop.
