Applications for Student Government Association were due on Feb. 13. The SGA President and Vice President positions only had one applicant each.
Biology major Ida Haefner is the only nominee for the Presidency.
She is in her second year in the SGA. Her sophomore year she served as a senator.
Her junior year she became the director of communications. Following her duties for that role, she types up all the minutes and agendas for the SGA meetings.
“This coming year will be my third year in SGA,” Haefner said. “I really enjoyed starting as a senator and now working my way up to president.”
Haefner is currently the president of the Student Honors Organization after previously serving as vice president of advertising and historian of the same organization. She also works as an office assistant in the Honors Office.
She is also the secretary of the Beta Beta Beta Biology Society. She is also involved with the Navigators.
She is originally from Hillsboro, Missouri.
Current SGA President Daniel Hager is running for the Vice Presidency. Hager is a theatre and cinema major.
“I am looking forward to making more improvements to campus,” Haefner said. “Daniel Hager is the current president and will be my vice president, so I’m sure he has a lot of activities that he still has planned.”
Both candidates will run unopposed.
“It’s exciting in that the unknown factor is gone,” Haefner said. “I don’t have to worry about if I am going to make it or not, it is just there for you. But it’s still nice to go out and say, ‘Hi, I’m Ida Haefner and I’m your new SGA President, tell me what you want done.’
Although Haefner and Hager will be the only nominees on the ballot for each position, voters will have an opportunity to vote for a write-in candidate.
