The results for Student Government Association elections are in.
Lindsay Mencacci, SGA vice president and a senior biology major, is SGA president-elect. Mencacci said she is excited about the projects the upcoming year holds.
"This year there are many changes being made at the state level in post secondary education that will effect us," Mencacci said.
She expects these projects to improve different areas on campus. She said she also hopes to improve residence halls with the housing department.
"We plan to finish Tech Express by making concessions at games and machines at the [Maxie Lambright Intramural Sports Center] accessible with our cards," Mencacci said.
She is also excited about fresh ideas from Cazerrick "C.J." Johnson, a sophomore political science major and vice president-elect.
"He is new to the office but not to hard work," Mencacci said.
As class president all four years in high school, Johnson is ready with new projects to get students heard.
"I know this position will take a strong leader, and I am ready to be that," Johnson said.
Kimberly Ludwig, current SGA president and a senior business management and entrepreneurship major, said this is a bittersweet moment.
"There are a lot of new faces that are motivated and excited to follow up with all the projects we have worked on and I know they will just make them bigger and better," Ludwig said.
