Meet your "User-friendly" SGA leaders
by: Robin Hollingsworth
Meredith has a long tradition of
student government. Now in its
ninth decade of service to the
student body, the SGA continues to
dedicate itself to the high standards
it established in 1905. The execu

various organizations. Together
they hope to represent the differ
ent views of the student body.

major, serves as SGA president.
June is looking forward to a year of
building unity and increasing
communication between the SGA
and students. She encourages
everyone to feel free to come by
SGA meetings to vocalize any
concerns and reminds us that
otherwise the SGA may not be
aware of the issue. June, a Holly

assertiveness and business etiquette, and a general session on the Social
Change Model for Leadership Development. The conference is centered
around the theme “Leaders Under Construaion: Blueprints for Change.”
