SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa — The Slippery Rock Student Government Association recently elected its executive officers for the2022-23 academic year at Slippery Rock University. Hannah D'Egidio, a junior dual music education and political science major from Industry, was elected SGA president. Student voting was conducted April 4-6 on CORE, SRU's online platform for student clubs and organizations, and nearly 800 votes were cast, the most since 2017.
"At the beginning of the fall semester, I was filled with an unexplainable desire to do more," said D'Egidio, who previously served as speaker of the SGA senate. "After a few conversations with my closest friends and my academic adviser, I knew I had the support I needed to begin pursuing this endeavor."
As an education major, D'Egidio said that one of her main focuses will be emphasizing social and emotional learning for students. Her goal as SGA president is to be the voice of the students who might not have the opportunity to communicate with University administrators and other campus leaders.
D'Egidio mentioned how the COVID-19 pandemic has taken a toll on the campus community, and she wants to help bring more groups together at SRU.
"The incoming executive board is filled with people from different majors and social groups on campus that just so happen to have a passion for student government," D'Egidio said. "I wanted to be a part of the efforts to make this campus a better, more inclusive space, and this iss the best way I know how to do that."
The other members of the executive board include:
- Alexis Jones, a health science public health major from Verona, as vice president of student and academic affairs.
- Nikole Husnick, a secondary education and social studies major from Masury, Ohio, as vice president of finance.
- Elizabeth Hood, a recreational therapy major from Gibsonia, as vice president of internal affairs.
- Samantha Shaffer, a biology major from Carmichaels, as vice president of campus outreach.
- Alexis Gish, an early childhood education major from New Castle, as vice president of diversity and inclusion.
Among her priorities as president of SRSGA, D'Egidio wants to prioritize student mental health and investigate doing more with the mental health programs available on campus.
