After months of campaigning and work, new student body president Chris Griffin and student body vice president Alec Waid were officially sworn into the positions Friday during a small ceremony.
With about 20 Student Government (SG) members and family members and Board of Trustee members filling the room, the ceremony focused on the ending of the old term and the welcoming of the new one.
Newly-elected Senate President Aladdin Hiba thanked the past SG leadership before looking to the future. Former student body president Andy Rodriguez, former student body vice president Michael Malanga and the incoming administration of Griffin and Waid shared these sentiments.
“As I’ve begun the transition, I realize the large task we have ahead of us,” Griffin said. “Every year, we see different challenges within (SG) and it is only with leaders who stand with a strong moral compass that allows us to continue to fight for our students. I’m excited to get to work alongside Alec next year because I know the two of us have some of the strongest morals around.”
