The Student Government Association on Aug. 27 held their first general student senate meeting in the CJ Davidson Conference Center.  92nd session. From 7-9 p.m., the SGA carried their meeting in the CJ Davidson Conference Center with roughly 23 attendees.

The Student Government Association is an organization that makes decisions which impacts ASU and its surrounding community. 

“Since it’s the beginning of the year, we held elections for our Executive Team and our Chairperson Team this week,” SGA President Kristen Kilpatrick said.

Savannah Burnett and Madison Wallace, two senators, incurred a standoff for a position among its members. Wallace is running for president pro tempore and Burnett for public relations chairperson.

“I came to college without knowing anyone”, I came here on my own. I am very involved in high school and that is why I got involved in ASU,” Wallace said. 

“I am super excited to join, I am in ROTC, and getting involved is what makes a difference on campus!”

Kilpatrick later describes what SGA is like during this school year.

“Being elected as President has changed my life in many different ways. All tremendously positive. This position is unique compared to other officer spots I’ve held over the past two years,” Kilpatrick said. 

Kilpatrick is going on her third year as a member of SGA. 

 “Because of coronavirus, this term is definitely a lot different than any other we’ve seen in the past. I’ve learned so much about adapting and relying on my team. I’m so thankful to have a Vice President like Brady Floyd because he has made this process so much easier. Having a strong team is so important. I’m very blessed.”

 Kilpatrick served as the president tempore as well as the vice president of programming in the Zeta Kappa chapter of the Sigma Kappa sorority. She later described what she believed were the most important principles for a successful fall semester. 

“The number one thing I’d like to stress to students is to follow the safety precautions set in place by Angelo State and the city of San Angelo. Everyone wants for school to go back to normal, and the only way to accomplish that is if everyone follows the rules.” Kilpatrick said

 “The RamFam is not just a slogan for us on campus. We truly take care of our own. And right now, that requires us to avoid large gatherings, wear our mask covering on campus, and socially distance when in public. “
