Students showcase their skills for the 2012-2013 SGA Elections

The time is here again for students to present their top qualities for positions on Alcorn’s Student Government Association. They are vying for the titles that will represent and serve as liaisons between the student body and the administration. Many of the candidates are hosting numerous events and activities around the campus to accentuate their platforms and share with their peers what they can bring to the table.

On Monday, March 19, each contender was allowed three minutes at the Meet the Candidates to deliver a speech that adequately explained why they were the suitable choice for their position. The candidates running for SGA president, Moorhead, Mississippi, native Victor Smith and Marcus Mercy from Monroe, Louisiana, respectably debated over topics given by audience members.

Students vote on Tuesday, March 27, and are excited about the upcoming elections and the new ideas that will come with the newly elected SGA. Freshmen Elana Cherry shared, “I am excited to see what the candidates can bring to Alcorn State. They all have incredible ideas that will help the University grow and become a more unified family.”

Students aspire to see well-rounded individuals who best represent what Alcorn State University stands for: Achievement, Success and Unity.

Students can see the ladies vying for the title of Miss Alcorn State University at the Miss Alcorn Pageant at 4 p.m. on Sunday, March 25, in the Campus Union Ballroom.
