I am thrilled to work with an experienced and polished Executive Council. Each of us has served in some capacity in SGA for multiple years, so I am fully confident that we possess the experience necessary to accomplish many astounding goals next year! Personally, 2021-2022 will mark my third year in MC's SGA, and I am excited to be serving as our Business Manager. In this role, I am charged with maintaining SGA's social media, funds, and official correspondence with whomever we may be in communication. I hope to keep the student body well-informed and well-heard through our social media, as I believe it imperative that all students have the ability to provide input concerning the goings-on of SGA. In addition to all of this, I want to work with the school's administration to ensure that Mississippi College regains the normalcy we had (and that we all miss) before this terrible pandemic.
