PRESIDENT - María Peña


Class: N/A

Major: N/A

Minor: N/A

Greetings fellow Mustangs! My name is Maria Isabel Peña, and I am your 2017 – 2018 Student Body President! I am 21 years young and can attest that by being born and raised in Dallas, home is definitely where the heart is; although I am definitely counting down the days to my graduation in May, (woo – hoo!) I am working hard to make every last second of my time here at Midwestern count. I currently assist one of our Professors, Mrs. Pam Moss with her College Connections Class as a Peer Leader for the 2017 Fall Semester and 2018 Spring Semester. I have served in SGA since my freshman year, and slowly became more involved within this incredible organization; additionally, last year I was even given the opportunity of being the 2016 – 2017 Student Assistant for our past SGA President. I am the Founding President of the Organization of Hispanic Students, and have had the privilege of serving as the Vice President, PNM Director and multiple other positons for Sigma Lambda Alpha Sorority, Inc. I have also ventured out of my comfort zone as the Social Chairwoman for the MSU Rugby Sports Club, the Senator of Psi Chi and by being a member of the Model UN Team. This year aside from being your President, I am the PNM Director and Multi – Cultural Greek Council Representative for Sigma Lambda Alpha Sorority, Inc and a part of Order of Omega. I hope to help enrich your college experience and provide unconditional support for all of my fellow students. Please feel free to stop by our office in the Clark Student Center and visit with us! We are here to serve you! Go Mustangs!!!

I'm Damian De Silva, an Economics Senior in the Dillard College of Business Administration. I am a member of Golden Key International Honour Society, Alpha Chi College Honor Society, the Caribbean Students Organization, and am also a  Peer Counselor/Orientation Leader and a Student Ambassador with the Office of Student Development and Orientation. I've been a part of the MSU and greater Wichita Falls communities for almost three years now, and have been able to take advantage of opportunities to meet, befriend and learn from people from diverse cultures from all over the world.

Being a part of Student Government is a new thing for me, and I look forward to learning from those who've been a part of it for a while. Service to humanity is something I have a love for, and I hope to use this opportunity to do just that. I am also eager to learn from others and to be a listening ear to my colleagues. I wish to continue contributing to campus life and doing my part to make our collective experience that much better. I look forward to representing you as SGA Vice President for 2017-2018.
