Letter To The Editor: A Message from Your SGA President

Featured Opinion Letter to the Editor Opinion

Fellow Griffons,

Welcome to the 2016-2017 year here at Missouri Western! My name is Alec Guy, and I am the Student Government Association (SGA) President for this school year. I am a senior majoring in Political Science and Economics. I have really enjoyed my time at MWSU for many reasons, but mostly because of working with, learning with, and getting to know all of you, my fellow students and friends. That is why I intend to spend my last year here serving you and trying to make your time at Missouri Western awesome!

I am Connor Samenus, your SGA Executive Vice President. I am a senior majoring in both Finance and Accounting, while also being in the honors program. This is my fourth year serving in SGA. Missouri Western has offered me countless opportunities to develop into the person I am today, which is why I am excited to dedicate my time to making your college experience the best it can be!

SGA is the organization that represents all students in all matters. While we do many things to represent the student body, some of our roles are spending money to help improve campus and working with administration to pursue student interests, just to name a few – we would go more in depth, but we have a word limit! We hope to talk with you this year in order to accurately represent your interests and to serve you the best we can.

As we said earlier, this university has done so much for us, and all of you have helped make our college experience great. With that being said, we want to return the favor by helping you however we can! We ran for these positions to improve Missouri Western, and we want all of you to enjoy your time here. That is why our focus this year is on you, the student. Our doors are always open, and you can come to us if you need anything. We are a Griffon Family here at Missouri Western, and we hope to make SGA the bedrock of this family. We would love to hear from you, so please contact us at aguy1@missouriwestern.edu and csamenus@missouriwestern.edu. We also have an office in Blum 217, which is open from 8 AM to 4:30 PM Monday through Friday. We also have weekly meetings on Mondays at 5:30 PM in Blum 220, which are open to all students; we would love to see you there! We understand communication is not a one-way street as well. This year we, and SGA as a whole, are going to be proactive in seeking your opinion. We will be working hard to connect with all of you, so please be on the lookout for more from us. Have a great semester and #GoGriffs!

Best Wishes,

Alec & Connor
