Junior political science and English major Laura Ann Prickett will serve as the 2015-2016 SGA President, becoming the ninth female president since 1980.

Prickett, who is from Decatur, Alabama, has been involved in SGA for three years, including two years on Senate and serving this year as the chair of the SGA Senate academic affairs committee. She is also involved in Greek life and international student affairs, and is the first University Fellow to be elected SGA president.

“I am most looking forward to working with the other branches of SGA to increase our relevance, accessibility, and transparency on campus,” Prickett said.

“This year, I plan to make our services and activities more relevant for and more representative of more students. These big goals aren’t just ideas – I have specific systems and activities planned in order to implement change during my term.”

Director of Student Leadership and Community Engagement Janna Pennington said 1,036 students voted in the run-off between Prickett and sophomore pre-business major Porter Rivers. Sophomore class-officers and Senate public health representatives were also decided in the race.
