After last week's election resulted in a run-off between the "Elevate" and "All-In" tickets, today's results announced the new Student Body President to be William Jewell and his Vice President, Taylor Scott.
On a campus of over 30,000 students, only 4,692 voted.The "Elevate" ticket received 57.2% of the vote.
Jewell and Scott say they plan to hold their staff to seven core values – to be honest, initiate ideas, be inclusive, remain transparent, be intentional, be diligent and be effective.
The Live Oak Lounge exploded with cheers as the results were announced. LSU President, F. King Alexander and former Student Body President, Stewart Lockett, were in attendance.
The victors also said their platforms for a change are to “enhance the tiger experience”, reform transportation, fight for health and wellness funding and improve campus safety.
The pair will be inaugurated on Tuesday, April 2nd.
