Letter From Your President


Hey Jags!

It is with great honor and humility that I serve as the University of South Alabama’s SGA President. Our University has continuously reminded me of the beauty of stewardship, advocacy, and community. The University of South Alabama tugged on my heartstrings the moment I toured campus as a senior in high school. I was captivated by not only welcoming students and staff, but also the surplus of opportunities South provides.

Throughout my years at South, I have been involved in numerous student organizations, one of which, being our Student Government Association (SGA). In previous years, I was the Governmental Relations Committee Chair in  both the First Year Council and SGA, served as a Senator for the College of Arts and Sciences, and held the position of Attorney General.

The University of South Alabama has a tremendous amount of resources for students to access. Alongside the numerous organizations, faculty, and curriculum, SGA aims to do our part in making your college experience a success.

The best advice I was ever given once stepping on South’s campus was, “find a way to make your paw print here at South.” I believe that every student should take that into consideration. Find your passion, your skill, your niche, and use that to positively impact the people around you. No progress is little progress. No dream is insignificant. No purpose is unattainable.

One obligation I have as SGA President is to be the student voice in rooms where not many students get to be in. This, I do not take lightly. I truly honor the opinions and concerns of my peers, and I hope that my journey as President will reflect the character and initiatives of my fellow constituents. Therefore, I encourage you to come by the SGA Office, found right across from the Student Center Ballroom in Suite 214, and see us.

Our job as student leaders is to listen to any ideas and concerns our peers have and serve you to our best ability. Our Monday night senate meetings are open to the student body where students can speak up on ways to enhance the student experience. Don’t be a stranger! And most importantly, GO JAGS!
