I am so sorry that I have been excomunicado for the past week or so, the whole experience has gone by in a whirlwind, but I am happy to announce that I have run for student body president and won.
So next year, 2012-2013, with all of the excitement of the Presidential Debate, the renovation of the Penrose Project, and much more, I am honored and humbled to say that I will be the Undergraduate Student Government President. I have sat on USG for two years now, and so I am excited to continue the hard work of those who have come before me. Our university has gone nowhere but UP over the past several years, and I know that this next one will be a major turning point in how our school is viewed across the nation and even around the world.
Parker and I
Campaign week was a blast, though, and while I'm glad to be able to sleep again, I felt so much love and support from all over campus that I am in some ways sad to see it go. I couldn't have done it with anyone besides Parker. She will be my Vice President next year and I would never have been able to pull this off without her. It's going to be a fantastic experience.
My awesome friends
