The winners of the 2017-2018 Slippery Rock Student Government Association (SRSGA) elections were announced Tuesday, and the SRYOU ticket swept all executive board positions over the Your V.O.I.C.E ticket.
In total 1,854 votes were cast by the SRU student body for this year’s election., the most of any SGA election in recent time.
Rachel Lawler as SGA president as Dallas Kline as VP of student and academic affairs, Scott Vogelgesang, VP of student and academic affairs, Lexi Foster as VP of internal affairs and Riley Keffer as VP of financial affairs, will be the next executive board for SGA in 2017-2018.
Lawler said how incredible it is to win this election and how a sweep was something no one on the ticket expected to happen.
Lawler credited both tickets for well balanced and organized campaigns this year.
“It’s actually amazing,” Lawler said. “I honestly didn’t think it was going to be a sweep but a split ticket. Both tickets were so strong and so dedicated to what they believed in and what they stood on. So I’m just really proud of both tickets for doing this and making it so competitive this year.”
