Throughout my time at MSU, I have been very active. Currently, I am co-chair for the SGA Bylaw Committee and Elections Committee. I also serve as the Freshman Senator and President Pro Tempore. Outside of SGA, I am a member of Alpha Phi where I am Vice President of Chapter Operations. Previously, I held the positions Director of Continuous Open Bidding and SGA Senator. I also sit on the Student Conduct Committee and the Panhellenic Extension Committee. Even though I am involved in many things, my goal has been to become President of SGA to make a difference at this school. I ask for your vote in helping me achieve this goal. Thank you!

"We never know how high we are, Til we are called to rise And then, if we are true to our plan Our statures touch the skies." - Emily Dickinson

I would have never thought I would be running for Vice President of SGA, but as my quote by Emily Dickinson said, "We never know how high we are, Til we are called to rise," and I have been called to rise to the occasion and display my ability to enhance OUR university. Here are some of my recent endeavors where I have risen to the occasion:

  • 2013-2014 Sigma Tau Delta International English Honor Society Senator, 
  • Alpha Chi and National Society of Collegiate Scholars.
  • 2013-2014 Co-Chair of the Caribbean Students Organization's (CSO) Social Committee (Sub Committee)
  • I am employed at the University Development Office, where I have hit the Golden Tower Status, which means that I have raised more than $10,000 for OUR university.
  • I am a goal oriented person and I am confident that I possess the necessary skills to, in my opinion, successfully represent the student body if selected for the position of Vice President.

I care about being involved on campus, and I have really enjoyed serving SGA as a senator for Lambda Nu. It is my belief that the more involved we are, the more better we become as students, as a university, and as members of society.

The major am pursing is an undergraduate degree in the field of Marketing-BBA. I have chosen this field of study because in today’s business environment, marketing is a key position which helps to bring awareness, generate higher sales, improve a company reputation and bring healthy competition to a company’s products and services. Whether you are running a grocery shop, winery, casino or even a whole country, one can't afford to simply sit back and hope people come and visit. You've got to take the matter into your own hands and employ a marketing strategy to maintain and develop your product and service. After all, no one will visit you if they've never heard of you.

John Quincy Adams once said “If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.” And I intend to inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more once I get the opportunity to serve on the MSU Students Government Association.

I am a very proactive student on-campus. I am presently the Co-Chair of the Caribbean Students Organization (CSO) 2014 Caribfest Committee, Interim Senator for the American Advertising Federation and a former production member of the 2014 CSO’s Expressions Show. I think by volunteering my service to various organizations and businesses would help me to expand my knowledge and awareness which can be passed onto other MSU students. With that being said, during the annual great day of service last fall semester, I had volunteered my service to assist Whispers of Hope Horse Farm to clean the entire farm and organizing the equipments for the kid’s. I will ensure that I uphold the standards of MSU and in doing so contribute my efforts to the Students Government Association.

Recently, the American Adverting Federation has nominated me for the 2014 Junior Male of the Year which I will be recognized during the university annual Honors Recognition Banquet.

Thank you for the opportunity to run for your Senior Class Senator. I would like to let all voters know that with me, and you, we can transform Midwestern State into our university. Why do I say that? The slogan on commercials and billboards always reads "It's my university, make it yours". How many of you in the student body actually feel that way? With me as your Senior Senator I will fight for your voice to be heard on all levels. I don't care who you are or where you come from. Together we can achieve a better Midwestern State University that focuses on you, the student body as a whole and not just the select few. I'm an honest, blunt, don't beat around the bush type of guy. I do not care what hurdle or hoops I have to jump through, as long as I'm fulfilling my job as your Senior Senator it will be worth it. Here on campus I have been a part of the Rugby Club, and it was an awesome experience. One of my goals as Senior Senator is to increase student involvement in clubs and organizations here on campus. These are our college years and together we can enjoy them to the maximum. With the student body an I, we can achieve all that we work hard to accomplish. It would be an honor to serve as your Senior Class Senator for the 2014-2015 school year.
