Two new senators were sworn in at this week’s SGA session: one for the College of Education and Health Professions, the other as a senator-at-large.
The senator for the College of Education and Health Professions is sophomore Deangela Horton, a nursing major and Arkansas State University transfer student. Horton served in the military, and participates in the ROTC at the University of Central Arkansas. She hopes to bring ROTC to UA Little Rock by next semester, and tries to involve herself as much as possible with volunteer work on campus.
“Basically anything helping anyone and everybody, I’m gonna be interested in,” said Horton.
The senator-at-large position went to Scott Foltz, a transfer student from the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville. Foltz is a history major with experience in photography, and hopes that student government will provide him the opportunity to learn more about the university.
The senate’s Education on People, Processes, and Resources Committee is working on a student listening session later this semester. The session would provide students the opportunity to voice their concerns to their SGA representatives.
The SGA also voted on its budget this session. Of the organization’s allotted $11,605, the two largest budget items are a $5,000 optional stipend for executive members of SGA and $3,000 for food and contracting services. The budget also reserves $1,000 for promotional items.
