Miller, a1 Reidsville senior, who -says he is determined to get more students involv ed in campus govern ment. : . '' " ..'v . , Miller was elected as SGA chief executive in elections recently by a 55-vote margin over Bfan R. , Berkley -of Raleigh. Miller received ,593 of the 1,131 votes cast in the election and Berkley got 538. Slighty over 7,000 UNC-G undergraduates were eligible to vote in the election. For Miller and Berkley, the election was the third one held for the SGA presidency. No stu dent received a majority of votes among the-, several candidates runn ing in the first election last spring. Thereafter, the run-off election was 4 ruled invalid by the stu dent elections board due to alleged balloting ir regularities. Now that the election is over, Miller said he plans, to work hard to "bring student govern ment t6 the students. "I plan to go out and actively recruit students to become involved with student government," Miller said during an in terview following his election victory. "I hope to curb stu dent apathy by involving more students in govern ment, especially freshmen, sophomores and commuting students." he said. ' ( V r S. "5 fSMwvd Z"?

Among other things he wants to accomplish as SGA president, Miller would like to form a stu dent "community watch" group on cam pus and get involved with helping the UNC-G administration solve campus blems.
