Announcement clarifies leadership of the Student Government Association at FHSU

Arin Powers, Woodward, Okla., junior, released a statement today announcing that she will transition from acting president to president of the Student Government Association at Fort Hays State University:

"In spring 2014, the student body of Fort Hays State University re-elected Chris Roberts as president of the Student Government Association for this school year. As his running mate, I was elected vice president."
"Because of personal issues, Chris chose not to be sworn in as president and, by default, I became the acting president."
"It has been a difficult summer because of the uncertainties of what might lie ahead, but with the help of senators and staff, I have been able to move forward constructively with SGA business. I especially thank my chief of staff, Eris Wilson, for his valuable assistance. With the vice president position vacant, he has assumed some of those duties in addition to his regular duties as chief of staff.
"In a recent note to me, Chris stated that he had decided not to assume the duties of student body president for the coming year. The uncertainty about the leadership of SGA has been resolved. I am pleased to announce that I will be officially sworn in as president of the FHSU Student Government Association at the Sept. 11 meeting.
"Now, my fellow senators and I will move forward to address issues that are important to the success of the FHSU student body.
"As the next step, the Senate and I will fill the positions of vice president and public relations director. We are accepting applications for those positions. Application forms can be picked up in the SGA office on the lower level of the Memorial Union. The deadline to apply is Sept. 12.
"I thank my fellow students for their votes last spring, I thank senators and my staff for their support thus far, and I pledge to students, faculty, staff, alumni, members of the Kansas Board of Regents and supporters everywhere that SGA will work constructively and aggressively for the betterment of Fort Hays State University."
